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!

The basics

3D Modeling

Every 3D model needs a mesh. The more complex the mesh, the more complex we can make the model.

This video will explain how to make a simple mesh in Blender by drawing edges, making faces, and grabbing vertices!

Open Blender, follow the video and submit your work as instructed.


Reflection Activity

Study Skills

Challenge yourself to start again!

See what you can remember and try to rebuild your spoon from memory.

It will help you to check if you understand the process and also help you to memorise keyboard shortcuts.
