Create a 3D Animal with Blender!

Create a 3D Animal with Blender!

Cats, penguins, and frogs, oh my! Create your own virtual animal friend. Join Studio X, UR's hub for immersive technologies, and learn more about the digital world of extended reality (XR). This 1.5 hour workshop focuses on asset creation with the 3-D modeling software, Blender. This open-source and free software has become the industry standard over the last couple of years. Learn how to navigate its workspace, tools, and hotkeys and become familiar with one of the most popular platforms of the industry. You will create a low-polygon model of an animal using provided reference images. Your model can then potentially be used as avatars in other XR projects or 3-D workspaces such as Unity. This is a beginner-focused workshop, but all levels are welcome!

Note: Workshop attendees must bring a laptop with Blender installed. Please download this ahead of time.
