Beginner Modeling

Goals

Students will learn how to customize a simple mesh using the modeling tools

Skills

  • Mesh modeling
  • Edit mode
  • Mesh edit tools: extrude, loop cut, bevel, etc.

Assignment Details

Make at least 50 modifications to mesh vertices in a single, complex mesh object or in multiple objects. An extrusion or bevel counts as one modification even though it may modify multiple vertices. Simple example models would include chess pieces, furniture, or a simple animal. Complex models like motorcycles, faces, or detailed animals and characters are not necessary for this assignment.
