3D Drawing

Postby learner » Thu, 10 May 2007 6:27 am

I want to try my hands on 3D rendering, I wonder if anyone around here has used Blender 3D. I have read many articles recommending this software, it is in fact used by some professionals. However, after installing it, I thought it might not be for newbie like me. I saw so many windows and panels and I don't even know where to start :mad: (Im to lazy to read tutorial, but maybe I will one of these days).

I wonder if anyone here can recommend any other free softwares for drawing 3D graphics which is more suitable for newbies? :D

google sketch up..... and it's free

You wont get all the subtle options of materials textures and lighting but it's a good way to get your head around 3D modeling.

Learning any 3D package ( 3D MAX, Blender, Maya etc ) is impossible if your not willing to read!! even if you only read the reference docs when you get stuck.
Not reading up on the package you choose will mean you'll never get the full potential out of the package which in turn means your renderded results will be mediocre at best.

CHeck out www.3Dcafe.com loads of info and free tutorials and models etc

Good luck

I guess that'll be enough for now to get me started. :D
