Course Description

Blender is a professional free and open-source 3D computer graphics software product used for special effects, animation film studios, printed media, TV commercial companies and 'Industrial film' companies. We are offering a project based course which helps Learners to learn 3D Modelling using Blender effectively.

The Learners will understand the concepts of 3D Modelling, and the basics of modelling using 3D Software, Blender. By learning the techniques of quick modelling they will be proficient in using Blender, and will be able to follow the animation industry’s standardized process for creating models which are ready for texturing, rigging and animation. The tools and functions in Blender are taught along the principle of “learning by doing” while creating assets such as a Coral, Chair, N-gon, Cactus, Pipe, Toy and many more.

In the course, all the concepts and actions in Blender are taught while creating assets (small projects) itself. There are 12 assets divided into 12 sections, and the concepts and the demonstrations to create them are divided into lectures. The course spans over 4.5 hrs of video lectures and the learners may take 2-3 weeks to complete it while practicing on their own as they go about the course.

In the first couple of hours into the course, the Learners will be able to create simple models on their own. The Learners will also understand the organisation context as they learn to create assets which are widely used in the industry. This course will help the Learners to start 3D Modelling and open up to new career avenues in the 3D Animation industry. 

What are the requirements?

  • Students will require a computer system with Blender installed. Check system requirements on the Blender official website.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • At the end of this project based course, the students will be able to create assets such as a Can, Chocolate Cube, Cactus, Chair, Screw and 6 more assets. They will be able to learn the tools in blender while learning to create the projects as elucidated in the course.
  • They will also be able to follow the animation industry’s standardized process for creating models which are ready for texturing, rigging and animation.

What is the target audience?

  • Students with creative and artistic inclinations, a good understanding of anatomy, space and structure, and designers working in digital arts should definitely take this course. This course is also well suited for the students who want to start a career in animation industry. Designers in the gaming industry, teachers in design and art teachers, as well as architects and interior designers can benefit from the course.
  • Students without artistic and creative inclination, and basic operating knowledge of a computer system should not take this course.

Curriculum

Section 1: Course Introduction
01:45

In this course you will learn Blender user interface and basics in modeling through common situations based on the day today life of a 3D Modeler. You will also learn the two types of modelling, polygonal and curve modeling.

You will be taught various types of modifiers which will help you in efficient modeling. Quick and low poly modelling techniques. Through these various skills and techniques you will be able to create basic models like chair, can, spring, pillar, screw, etc. and this will help to you to build your foundation in 3D modelling.
