    What is 3-D Modeling?
    3-D modeling is all around you. You might think of 3-D movies or great animations when you think about 3-D modeling, but it is a lot more than that. The new skyscraper downtown, that artificial limb given to a wounded veteran, or the latest spacecraft hurling into orbit all likely depended on 3-D modeling for their design. With so many uses, 3-D modeling is an essential skill in today’s world, and you will begin with some about the basics about what 3-D modeling is, how it is done, and what you can do with the skills you acquire.

    The History of 3-D Modeling
    As long as there has been human society, art has been a part of it. Today, 3-D modeling has become an essential part of animation. While its applications go way beyond entertainment, it owes much of its development to innovative artists looking for better ways to represent the worlds they create on film. Even teenagers playing really basic video games in the 1980s were actually moving technology forward by creating a market and pushing companies to make better and better versions. So, 3-D modeling has a long history dependent on several different innovations. Exploring how and why 3-D modeling evolved gives us valuable insights into how it can be used in the future and the potential of this technology that is still being unlocked.

    Tools of the Trade
    When you turn on your computer and perform a basic function, like checking your favorite social media site, you are actually drawing on the work of a lot of different elements of the computer. From the most basic line of code that tells the computer what to do, to the operating system that makes sure that it prioritizes the task you are working on now, every element of the job your computer is doing was perfectly planned. Everything that makes a computer work comes from decades of technology. Just as 3-D modeling depends on a long history of art, the computers that make it happen have their own histories. Because computers play such an integral role in 3-D modeling, it is helpful to know some of the basics about how they operate.

    Digital Citizenship and Ethics
    Working in 3-D modeling isn’t all fun and games, and an important part of this career is using the resources of the internet wisely and well. Like any society, the online community has expectations of appropriate behavior. In addition, the accessibility of information has raised some new challenges as digital artists want to share their work while making sure that they still get the credit that they deserve. Understanding the basics of copyright and other kinds of permission ensures that you will stay on the right side of the code of conduct, not to mention the law. One of the most exciting elements of 3-D modeling is the rate of change and the new possibilities that emerging technology brings.

    Creating 3-D Environments in Blender
    Now that you know a little bit about digital citizenship and copyrights, now you can see what you can do with 3-D modeling. There are free, open source programs available to get you started, so all you need to do is download them and start developing those valuable skills. Blender is one of these software programs that offers the opportunity to start exploring the world of 3-D modeling with no commitment or expectation. Besides being readily available to anyone, this digital tool offers detailed tutorial videos for beginners, which makes it the perfect first step. These tips are easily found on the website and will take you through the details of how to design your first 3-D character, making excellent use of the digital tools available on the platform. Because Blender is such a popular program, there are also plenty of tutorials and tips available online. If you have questions or find yourself struggling with certain elements, a quick internet search will likely save the day.

    Visual Elements
    You’ve likely heard the old adage, “a picture paints a thousand words.” Even today, this statement rings true, especially in the imaginative world of art and design. Regardless of the medium you use, every model, video, or creation you produce is infused somehow with your ideas and emotions. The question is simply, “what do you want to say?” Ultimately, the words available to you through 3-D modeling are limitless and will eventually be spoken through the object you create.

    3-D Computer Modeling A Final Exam
    In this unit, you will review the information you learned throughout this course and take an exam to demonstrate your newly acquired knowledge.
