Create a 3D Animal with Blender!

Cats, penguins, and frogs, oh my! Create your own virtual animal friend. Join Studio X, UR’s hub for immersive technologies, and learn more about the digital world of extended reality (XR). This 1.5 hour workshop focuses on asset creation with the 3-D modeling software, Blender. This open-source and free software has become the industry standard over the last couple of years. Learn how to navigate its workspace, tools, and hotkeys and become familiar with one of the most popular platforms of the industry. You will create a low-polygon model of an animal using provided reference images. Your model can then potentially be used as avatars in other XR projects or 3-D workspaces such as Unity. This is a beginner-focused workshop, but all levels are welcome!

Note: In order to participate, you will need to complete the following pre-workshop instructions. Depending on your computer and internet connection, this might take some time and cannot be completed during the workshop.
