What's Coming in Our June Projects?

The school year may be winding down, but summer can be a great time to take some time for 3D modeling! If you're a subscriber to our Projects of the Month, here's what's on tap for the projects that will be sent out this weekend:

Greebles

With the help of an amazing plugin, you can take simple shapes and add greebles, little (or not so little) bumps to make a boring shape much more interesting.





 
Beach Ball

Here's a great model to get you thinking about a beach vacation: a beach ball created with a few simple tools.


Cube and Hexagon

You might not think there's a relationship between a cube and a hexagon, but so many objects in 2D and 3D geometry are related in interesting ways. This project shows you how to use the Section Plane tool to find a hexagon inside a cube.




Want to get these fun projects? Here's where to sign up.
