Description

How easy is it to design and build your own original action figures and game pieces? In this introduction to 3D modeling, you'll answer these questions as you explore the prototyping process and STEM to STEAM learning in the areas of anatomy, computer science and spatial dynamics. You begin by brainstorming your concept in a sketchbook, and quickly move to the computer where you learn to navigate the powerful 3D modeling software ZBrush. As you become proficient, you'll build and optimize custom toy parts and figures, resulting in dependable 3D models that have the possibility of commercial rapid printing -- a record of your ability as a budding toy designer.
