Year 9 Product Design Technology - Hard Materials (One Term)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Norris.

This course focuses on using modern CNC (Computer numerically controlled) manufacturing techniques to produce a variety of skill based outcomes. Outcomes could employ the use of state of the art laser cutter, 3D printer, a CNC embroidery machine and dye sublimation. Design ideas are  generated on computers digitally using software packages to create high quality outcomes and construct them in a dedicated classroom developed to support this style of project. Traditional workshop techniques and equipment will not be used on this course, but ideas and creativity will be developed and explored.
