This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard will be useful for persons who are required to demonstrate the knowledge and skill to reflect the instructions into graphic images using 3D modelling.

People credited with this unit standard are able to:
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the CAD user interface features and the modelling environment.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of commands in order to develop a basic graphic object.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of commands and procedures to develop basic 3D models.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of file formats, model analysis and rendering.

    The skills, knowledge and understanding demonstrated within this unit standard are essential for social and economic transformation and contribute to the upliftment and economic growth of the mining and minerals sector.

    This unit standard is intended to promote general skills, knowledge and understanding of using a 3D computer programme as a design- tool to produce drawings to specifications in the jewellery manufacture process in order to ensure knowledgeable and informed workers. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that learners are already competent in:
  • Relevant computer skills and literacy.
  • Knowledge of Computer Aided Design (CAD) package.
  • Basic 3D modelling.
  • Ability to interpret drawing specifications.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
