Some of our Past Projects

Our youth and making career choices
The Naledi3d Factory in collaboration with Bursary Management Systems (BMS) are woking to create a series of truly engaging "A Day in the Life of" career video’s, freely available as downloads to mobile phones & PC’s. www.bursary.co.za

Short, sharp, and building on 3D, these videos will help our youth to better understand what a particular career choice entails, see what to study to get there, and as a result, make more informed career choices. We know that this will make study bursary applications more focused and so much more efficient.

We aim to do this sector by sector, and if you can help in the form of sector sponsorship, please get in touch .


Tshwane University of Technology - Faculty of ICT Foundation programme
2011-2012 marked the first time we had ever been contracted to create educational content for a South African tertiary institution. The Tshwane University of Technology’s (TUT) Faculty of Information and Communication Technologies faces major challenges in getting First Year students to adapt successfully to university level curriculums. In addition to teaching computer science to students within the faculty, up to 70% of other TUT Faculty students are also required to attend compulsory Computer Literacy courses in their first or second years. In the case of these students, their computer background will tend to be minimal along with in many cases, their motivation to attend. More importantly, however, is the severe lack of sufficient skills in mathematics to be able to write computer programmes or to understand the mathematical principles that underpin computer science.

By using visual and interactive media to communicate some of these concepts, we are able to go a long way to improving their understanding and retention. A series of simulations were created to teach the following: Basic measurements (length, weight & volume), computer programming variables, logic gates, fractions & ratios and, how to assemble a computer. These simulations have been installed in TUT’s computer labs & have been made available to students to sharpen their skill-set and improve their academic performance.

Rand Water Academy
In October 2012 Rand Water officially launched the Rand Water Training Academy. The Academy will train officials from municipalities and institutions from all over South Africa in the entire gamut of disciplines related to water treatment and sanitation processing. Having created an entire range of interactive 3D training courses for Rand Water over the years we were contracted to visualize the training academy facilities in 3D both for use as an animation and an interactive 3D “walk-through” application. These visual tools are currently being used by the Rand Water management team to interact with stakeholders in the design and construction planning phase of the project.

Freedom Park
In 2010 we were contracted by the Freedom Park museum to produce short 3D animated video clips of the approved exhibition design, showing specific views of the main elements including objects, film, installation items and panels. The content was art directed by the appointed exhibition designer and utilized existing detailed artistic drawings as their starting point. The videos were as part of the official launch of the museum in 2011.

SAFIPA
In 2011 we completed two distinct and unique projects for SAFIPA, i.e. Tap repair & maintenance & city management training using Sim City TM . Tap maintenance was a “no-brainer” as millions of litres of potable water are lost through inappropriate consumer behaviour and poor maintenance. We developed a set of simulations showing how to replace washers in bib taps, pillar taps, basin taps and toilet cisterns. The Sim City TM project was unique in being the first attempt at “localizing: Sim City for local municipal training. We changed contents such as buildings, trees, road-signs, etc. to reflect the local South African environment to make the environment look more “South African”.
