Creating more objects

To keep on training our basics, we start with adding more objects to the scene. Use the references below to help you.

Using curves

In this part, we start using curves to create tubes for a chemistry kit! And as usual, the reference files are just below!

This part is an introduction to Edit Mode where you can manipulate sub-parts of an object.

Edit Mode -2

In this video you’ll learn more tools and tips from the Edit Mode.
