Term 6 – Year 10 3D Design

As of Term 6 all work will be set by your teacher through weekly assignments sent to you on Microsoft Teams. The work sent to you will have a PowerPoint lesson attached to it for you to read through. You will also need the materials that were posted home to you along with any other equipment as instructed by your teacher.

Each week you will have a Live Zoom lesson that will help start you off with the work required of you each week. This lesson will explain and demonstrate what you need to do practically and will also give you the opportunity to ask questions.

You will need to:

  1. Attend all live Zoom lessons by clicking on the link sent to you in your emailed invitation from your teacher.
  2. Read through the PowerPoint lesson and complete the tasks set.
  3. Watch the video demonstrations within the PowerPoint or within the recorded lesson saved in your subject file area on 365.
  4. When you have completed the work you will need to photograph it and send it back to your subject teacher through Teams or by email. 


To upload your work on Teams, on the assignment click on ‘Add work’ and attach your photo.

Your subject teacher will then be able to offer you feedback.

If you have any questions about the work set please ask your subject teacher directly through Teams or please get in touch with me.

Term 5 - 3D Design

Modelling is making practice versions of your design, or parts of your design. It’s a good way  to visualise your design in 3D and to spot and solve any problems.

The modelling stage should be used to try out different materials and joining techniques.

Modelling can show you if certain design features are feasible and can help you think about whether you could reduce the number of parts to make construction easier. 


This series of lessons looks at Product design and research, the work of contemporary product engineers, Material properties, Joining techniques, calculating scales and measuring accurately and gives practical advice on how to create a cardboard model of a household product you would have access to.

Answers to starter questions will be available next week and any pictures of work or completed presentations should be sent to your class teacher for marking.
