Can anyone suggest a primer on 3D
« on: December 31, 2010, 12:34:05 PM »

I have got a number of different free 3D drawing programmes, and I am at the level of being able to create boxes and cones but I get stuck beyond that.

What I could really do with is some guidance on a decent free starter software which also has easy to use tutorials which take you beyond the spinning cube.

It would also help if the tuts introduced a bit of the general 3d theory as opposed to how they manage to hack 3d objects out of their application.

Highly recommend the new 2.5x versions of Blender 3D (at time of writing, current version is 2.56a Beta) - it's still in beta release but extremely stable (don't go near the 2.49b version - the user interface is archaic and you will struggle even more).

For training, check out Blender Cookie and Blender Guru. Very good video training.

All are free so you haven't spent a penny, dime or whatever! ;)

Hope that helps.
