What will you be doing on this workshop?
On this Digital Sculpting session, you will learn how to 3D model shapes in a more organic way. Starting from a digital ball of clay, use sculpting techniques on the computer to push, pull and mold your shape to create your own 3D model of a character than is suitable for 3D printing.
- Understand digital sculpting terminology and tools
- Be able to use software to create 3D digital designs
Aims of the Session:
1.1 Use appropriate software to create unique digital designs in a 3D modelling environment
2.1 Use software features to incorporate sculpting tools whilst working with digital clay.
2.2 Produce a digital creative design that is suitable for 3D printing
