About This Class

OVERVIEW

In this tutorial series I will teach you how to mockup your enamel pin designs in 3D using 3 pieces of software: Adobe Illustrator, Blender (FREE), and Adobe's NEW Dimension software. Bridging the gap from vector design to a 3D model in Dimension will allow you to render your designs at ANY angle, have complete control over the lighting in your scene, control the backdrop imagery, add additional objects to your scene, have complete control over your object's textures/materials, and more!

REQUIREMENTS

It is recommended you have an intermediate to expert knowledge of Adobe CC software. You DO NOT need an intermediate or expert knowledge of Blender software. We will be using a few features from Blender that I will take you through, step-by-step. Recommended basic familiarity with Adobe Dimensions interface.
