Required Skills

Required skills include:
communication, teamwork and literacy skills to:
- complete workplace documentation
- interpret and clarify written or verbal instructions
- respond constructively to feedback received from other team members
- work as a member of a production team, both independently on assignment and under direction
initiative and creativity skills to design, visualise and create 3-D digital models of a range of inanimate objects
self-management and planning skills to:
- meet deadlines
- prioritise work tasks
- seek expert assistance when problems arise
technical skills to:
- make backup copies of files and store appropriately
- manage files and directories using standard naming conventions and version control protocols
- use industry-current software applications to design and create 3-D models to specifications.

Required Knowledge

Required knowledge include:
- 3-D digital model design techniques
- 3-D digital modelling techniques
- basic knowledge of the stages in the production process from initial design through to finished product
- common issues and challenges that arise in the context of designing and creating 3-D digital models
- features of a range of delivery platforms
