This is a very old course I made quite some time ago, it by no means represents my current knowledge of 3D nor the quality of my current tutorials. I'm giving this away for free because I want users to have a chance to sample the platform and see how they like it.

Creating in 3D, learning, and teaching, are the passions that drove me to where I am today.

I'm a 3D motion graphics artist that has been in the industry for over 8 years. My tools of choice are Cinema 4D, Octane render, Substance Painter, and Unreal Engine. My goal is to use these tools to create art that inspires others, and share what I've learned with the world!


Is it really free?

Yes it is! This course is %100 free!

Its also yours to keep forever!

Do I need a 3D Printer?

Nope! No 3D printer required! In this course I show how to 3D print with a site called shapeways.com, where you upload your model, and then they 3D print it and ship it right to your door!

what software to I have to have to follow along with?

You need Cinema 4D R16 or higher to follow along, C4D R15-13 may work as well, but some aspects may be off a little.
