Students will produce a hall table under guided instruction learning how to use Fusion 360 Software to create joints and parts of products.

Students undertake a design process, investigating and analysing products that clearly connect to their design brief. They develop and plan concepts that create a variety of solutions for the brief. Students apply skills, processes and procedures to create a product that best meets their brief. They evaluate the design process and product they have created in response to their design brief.

Students investigate and analyse the functional characteristics and properties of two or more materials of their choice.
