We are happy to announce our first ever 3D modelling course!
Blender 2.8 , the new version of Blender, just came out, and we though it was a good opportunity for people to learn how to use the new interface from scratch.
Are you interested?
For those unfamiliar with it, Blender is a free and open-source 3D modelling software. It is widely used by 3D artists, and including those working in animation, video games, and VFX.
In this course, you will learn how to use Blender 2.8 while creating the 3D model of a building. From the most essential tools, to everything you need to create something like what you can see in the images.
Course dates and duration
The course is 16 hours long, divided in 4 days. There will be two different sessions:
– Weekends course: Two weekends. 2nd and 3rd, and 16th and 17th of November.

– Introduction to the Blender 2.8 interface. Everything from installing the software up until all the basics of its interface.
– 3D modelling practice: Creation of a 3D model of Netherbow Port, a 17th-century building. By creating this 3D architectural model from scratch, you will learn different 3D modelling techniques and how to use some of Blender 2.8’s tools.
– Materials and texturing. Once we finish modelling the building, you will learn how to make it photorealistic using materials and textures.
– Lighting, rendering, and compositing. Lastly, you will learn how to illuminate the scene, create an image, and how to post-process it using Blender.
