Join us for this LIVE Intro to Blender 3d Modeling Workshop for Beginners!
If you are a complete beginner to 3d animation or just want to brush up on your skills, this workshop is perfect for you! We’ll cover the basics of Blender, a powerful and popular 3d animation software, and give you hands-on experience creating and rendering your own 3d models!

  • We will start by going through an overview of Blender, the UI, settings/preferences, and leave time for open Q/A (20 mins)
  • Next we will begin modeling a coffee mug! (30-45 mins), this will cover the basics of 3d modeling such as: extruding, bevel tool, loop cuts, tips/tricks for selecting and handling a 3d mesh.
  • After this we will add some style to your 3d mug! (30 mins), covering the basics of setting up shader nodes and talking conceptually about rendering.
  • Last, we will render our mugs and compare results in two render engines (Cycles and Eevee).

But that’s not all – we’ll also have plenty of coffee on hand to keep you energized and focused throughout the workshop.
Your co-host and barista Daniel will be serving Aeropress Latte’s, Cappuccinos, regular drip, tea, or seltzers. So come join us for a fun and informative day of learning and creativity!
Can you draw a stick figure? Well then, you are qualified to attend this event! People who have taken this workshop find that there is a lot of information and hands-on learning. If you are feeling like you need additional help after class with some of the concepts, Daniel (TA and Host) will be available for virtual office hours. Rev may also be available on a limited basis but I will let them decide on their availability.

Blender is cross-platform and runs equally well on Linux, Windows, and Mac computers. But before you arrive make sure your OS supports the latest version of Blender 3.6.2 LTS. Which can be downloaded here: https://www.blender.org/download/.
If you need a laptop we have two spare lab computers that can be rented for use during the workshop.
Blender is the free and open source 3D creation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation. Blender is licensed as GNU GPL, owned by its contributors. For that reason Blender is Free and Open Source software, forever.
