FCW will be offering a class/workshop in Blender 3D on Sunday, January 4 at 12 noon. Blender 3d is an free, open source 3d modeling package similar to Maya and 3d Studio Max. It can be used for 3d modeling for printing, illustrations, walk-throughs, video and animations. It includes a physics engine, a gaming engine, and a video effects engine. More info on Blender 3d can be found at http://www.blender.org/
The class will be instructed by Dave, and will be about 3 hours in length. This is an introduction class and will cover getting started with Blender 3D: installing, the user interface, navigation, creating and modifying objects, and using some of the tools included in the package.
Participants should bring their own laptop and should have a keypad and 3 button mouse. Blender 3d is free and can be downloaded from http://www.blender.org/download/
