The Class



In this class you will learn the workflow of a 3D print designer.

We will use Suzanne the monkey to learn the Blender basics, repair design issues, and export for 3D printing.

There is a bonus lesson at the end that will challenge you to try some effect modifiers to create different design styles. 

Let's go!
