Learn how to make interesting organic forms using the sculpting tools inside Blender, a free and open source 3D modeling program, and free program Sculptris. Judah Sher will show you techniques that can be used to quickly model all sorts of shapes, from animal heads to jewelry. You can even use these techniques to warp and change other 3D shapes, such as objects downloaded from thingiverse.com. Finally, you will learn how to export your files so that they’re ready to be made on a 3D printer!
Students will become familiar with Sculptris and the organic modeling capabilities of Blender: what they’re capable of, how to use them, and what their limitations are.
No previous experience required. Students must be at least 18 years old.
