March 8th: International Women’s Day In honor of all the incredible women, everywhere in the world, we wish you a happy International Day of Women!  Let’s have a special thought for those strong women who pioneer in male-dominated industries, and making way for other generations.  In fact, the film and gaming industries are two such areas where there are still a majority of men. Can we collectively take  some time to reflect on how we […]

Working as a 3D Modeler in the Industry

Posted Posted in 3D Industry

What does a 3D modeler do? A 3D modeler is a digital artist that uses a software package to create virtual 3D objects.  Once modeled in 3D, an object can be rotated and viewed under any angle within a 3D software and usually rendered into 2D images and movies for reviewing.  There are currently no ways of projecting a 3D model in real 3D space conveniently, but there are two technologies giving us a nice […]

The Magic Behind 3D Modeling 3D modeling is the art of creating virtual objects made out of geometric shapes using 3D computer software.  There are different approaches to 3D modeling such as polygons, NURBS, SubDiv, Boolean and parametric…  but the most common technique is polygonal modeling.  The concept is to assemble quadrangles or triangles together by their sides to form the exterior surface of a 3D shape. The principle is very simple, but it makes […]
