Relationships with occupations
Render 3D images is an essential skill of the following occupations:
3D animator: 3D animators are in charge of animating 3D models of objects, virtual environments, layouts, characters and 3D virtual animated agents.
Digital games developer: Digital games developers program, implement and document digital games. They implement technical standards in gameplay, graphics, sound and functionality.
3D modeller: 3D modellers design 3D models of objects, virtual environments, layouts, characters, and 3D virtual animated agents.
Render 3D images is optional for these occupations. This means knowing this skill may be an asset for career advancement if you are in one of these occupations.
Aerospace engineering drafter: Aerospace engineering drafters convert the aerospace engineers’ designs into technical drawings usually using computer-aided design programs. Their drawings detail dimensions, fastening and assembling methods and other specifications used in the manufacture of aircrafts and spacecrafts.
Marine engineering drafter: Marine engineering drafters convert the marine engineers’ designs into technical drawings usually using software. Their drawings detail dimensions, fastening and assembling methods and other specifications used in the manufacture of all types of boats from pleasure crafts to naval vessels, including submarines.
Civil drafter: Civil drafters draw and prepare sketches for civil engineers and architects of architectonic projects of different kinds, topographical maps, or for the reconstruction of existing structures. They lay down in the sketches all the specifications and requirements such as mathematical, aesthetic, engineering, and technical.
Animation director: Animation directors supervise and recruit multimedia artists. They are responsible for the quality of the animation, that the production is delivered on time and within budget.
Automotive engineering drafter: Automotive engineering drafters convert the automotive engineers’ designs into technical drawings usually using software. Their drawings detail dimensions, fastening and assembling methods and other specifications used in the manufacture of automotive components, cars, buses, trucks and other motor vehicles.
Rolling stock engineering drafter: Rolling stock engineering drafters convert the rolling stock engineers’ designs into technical drawings usually using software. Their drawings detail dimensions, fastening and assembling methods and other specifications used in the manufacture of rail vehicles such as locomotives, multiple units, carriages and wagons.
Animator: Animators use software to create animations, these are rapidly sequenced together images to create an illusion of movement.
Industrial engineer: Industrial engineers design a vast array of production systems aiming to present efficient and effective solutions. They integrate a varied number of variables such as workers, technology, ergonomics, production flows, and product specifications for the design and implementation of production systems. They can specify and design for microsystems as well.
Tooling engineer: Tooling engineers design new tools for manufacturing equipment. They prepare tooling quotation requests. They estimate costs and delivery time, manage tooling construction follow-up and supervise the routine maintenance of tools. They also analyse data to determine the cause of major tooling difficulties and develop recommendations and action plans for solutions.
Drafter: Drafters prepare and create technical drawings using a special software or manual techniques, to show how something is built or works.
Video and motion picture editor: Video and motion picture editors are responsible for the assembly and cutting of raw footage into a logically and aesthetically either for movies, television series, or domestic purposes. They reorganize scenes that have been shot and decide which special effects are needed. Video and motion picture editors work closely together with sound editors and music directors.
Special effects artist: Special effects artists create illusions for movies, videos and computer games. They use computer software.
Material stress analyst: Material stress analysts plan and use software to perform structural analyses including static, stability and fatigue analyses on a variety of machines. They develop analysis of primary and secondary structures. They prepare technical reports to document their analysis results, participate in design reviews and recommend process improvements. They also assist in the development of structural test plans.
Heating, ventilation, air conditioning (and refrigeration) drafter: Heating, ventilation, air conditioning (and refrigeration) drafters create prototypes and sketches, technical details, and aesthetic briefings provided by engineers for the creation of drawings, usually computer aided, of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and possibly refrigeration systems. They can draft for all kinds of projects where these systems can be used.
