In this creative project, students use a simple 2D sketch to 3D model workflow to create a range of useful clip accessories. The project begins with an animation video, where students learn about the 2D to 3D workflow and its benefits as being a quick way to generate physical models. Using worksheets and tutorial videos, they then learn how to create 3 example models - a cable tidy, a bag holder and a filament clip. By analysing the aesthetics and functionality of the example models, students use their new skills to develop their own unique clip accessories.
