Blender Essentials 1

Top up your career toolkit in your own time.

Keep going, there’s more to discover!

The first part of our Blender series, level one is for newcomers to 3D modelling. The course starts from the very basics introducing you to the user interface and then how to create and arrange simple objects in a scene. From there, the main focus of the course is on 3D modelling. You’ll learn how to build progressively more complex models and the tools to do this along the way.

The course also focuses on basic texturing, how to set up lights and cameras and how to render stills. By the end of this course, you should feel comfortable creating and texturing your own models as well as be able to set up basic scenes which you can render.

This course is for anyone looking to learn 3D modelling on its own or anyone looking to use 3D tools for use in other fields such as game design and concept art.
