TAFE Victoria logo
Unit code: MEM30033 | Study level: TAFE
MEM30031 - Operate computer-aided design (CAD) system to produce basic drawing elements
(Or equivalent to be determined by unit coordinator)


This unit of competency defines the skills and knowledge required to use a computer-aided design (CAD) program to produce and print basic 3D view drawings.
This unit applies to the production of 3D models using CAD software and associated equipment, including the use of region and solid modelling techniques, section views and pre-drawn library files. Work also includes extraction of properties and application of basic rendering techniques.The unit applies to engineering or related activities and is suitable for people giving technical support in manufacturing or engineering operations and those pursuing technical qualifications and careers at paraprofessional or technician level. All work is carried out under supervision.


For Melbourne campuses

Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce & extend knowledge and skill competence within set & controlled parameters in accordance with each unit's learning outcomes & performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work-based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines.

Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills:

  • identifying modelling work requirements and determining appropriate software functions and features
  • applying CAD functions to produce a rendered 3D model on at least two occasions to Australian Standard (AS) 1100.101 Technical drawing - General principles.
    Note: Where a volume and/or frequency is not specified, demonstration must be provided at least once.

Required reading

The qualified trainer and assessor will provide teaching and learning materials as required in the form of workbooks produced by the VU Polytechnic and/or via the Victoria University Polytechnic e-Learning system.
