Objectives

Students will be able to:

  • understand that a mesh has edges, faces and vertices.
  • understand that a complex mesh can result in a more complex model.
  • understand that extruding means we can shape an object by pulling and pushing edges, faces and vertices.
  • understand that 3D Modeling software can be really cool!

3D Modeling

Would you like to work for Pixar? Or Walt Disney? Or Dreamworks? Or maybe a famous game designer like Cubix?

3D Modeling and Animation skills are needed and perhaps this short introduction to 3D Modeling and Animation can kick start your own career in this exciting field.

But you don't have to be a professional to create something cool. Check out this 3D animation created by someone with some spare time and a brain for creativity and problem-solving:


Getting started

We are going to take a short journey into 3D Modeling.

There will also be options to continue into 3D Animation.

The course will be presented via a short course of videos.

We will be using Blender, which is amazing and free!
