WORKSHOP: If all we had was a mug we could make the whole world – An Introduction to 3D modeling.
August 11 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
2pm – 5pm
This Introductory 3D Modeling workshop is for individuals with little or no experience using 3D modeling software. We will be using Blender, an open source 3D production software compatible with all major operating systems to 3D model and render our favorite mugs. The program can be freely downloaded by participants for use on their own laptops.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops and mice, although their will be a few computers and mice available on a first come first served basis.
This workshop will familiarize participants with the 3D environment and interface, basic 3D manipulation and creation of objects, surface and texture. Participants will have the opportunity to work individually with instructor supervision on the creation of their favorite mug. At the end of the workshop participants will have rendered still images of their mugs and an opportunity to show these mugs as part of an exhibition. Completion of this workshop will give participants the necessary background to begin experimenting with 3D modeling and animation.
