This course aims to provide beginners with the foundational knowledge and skills they need to create 3D models for printing using Blender, focusing specifically on object creation, manipulation, scaling, modifiers, and import-export to slicing programs. The course deliberately omits topics related to textures and rendering to remain focused on the core objective.
Are you ready to bring your imaginations to life? Join us in our online course on 3D modeling for print in Blender, an exciting journey that will equip you with the skills to create your own stunning 3D designs.
This course is designed with beginners in mind, so don’t worry if you have no prior experience. We will walk you through the basics of the Blender interface, and before you know it, you’ll be creating, manipulating, and fine-tuning your own objects.
You’ll master precision modeling for 3D printing, learning how to prepare your models for printing and import/export them for slicing programs. By the end of this course, you’ll not only have a deep understanding of 3D modeling, but you’ll also have a final project to showcase your new skills.
So, why wait? Embark on this creative adventure today. Unleash your creativity, learn a new skill, and open up a world of possibilities. It’s time to mold your future in 3D design. Join us now!
Let’s take this journey together. Your 3D modeling adventure awaits!
