basic knowledge of blender
Learn how to master hard surface modeling in blender 2.8. This course will cover everything you need to know to become a master at hard surface modelling.
Learn how to use boolean operations to create concept designs
This course will teach you everything you need to know about boolean operations and the various boolean operations modes available such as Union, Intersection and difference. No external or paid addons will be required everything will be done using the built in bool tools addon available in blender by default.
Learn about the various modifiers and how to use them in a hard surface modeling workflow.
This course will teach you how to use blender’s modifier stack in a hard surface modeling workflow. This course will cover everything you need to know including the bevel modifier, weld modifier, mirror modifier, boolean modifiers, weighted normal modifier and the correct order to place each modifier in the modifier stack. This course will also cover how to fix common issues you may encounter when hard surface modeling such as edges overlapping, shading artifacts etc.
Learn about the non destructive workflow and how you can use it to your full advantage
Utilizing hard surface modeling in blender allows you to quickly create concept designs and the advantage of a non destructive workflow is that you can quickly change your design without having to worry about topology, you will be able to quickly add details to hard surface models by utilizing the boolean workflow.
Learn how to add materials to your hard surface model and proper lighting of the scene
In the course detailed procedural plastic and metal materials are provided and you will be able to learn how to apply these materials to the hard surface model you create in the course. You can also feel free to use all the materials provided in the course for your own projects. In the course I also cover how to add lighting to your scene and compositing the final render to make your renders pop.
Everything in the course is organized in sections using a step by step approach All project files and materials are provided in the course.
This course will cover everything you need to know about hard surface modeling, after this course you will be able to create highly detailed concept designs and will become an expert at hard surface modeling.
