Students – I am not going to be at school today. Your assignment is to:

  • Create a new project – start with an empty scene and do File>SetProject
  • Pick one of the objects that we aren’t working on together (Hammer, Shield, Knife)
  • Import the reference images into the image planes of the view ports: View > Image Plane > Import Image
  • Start modeling your object.
  • Collaborate with your neighbors to model as much as you can.

I will check your progress on Friday and we will complete our model that we are doing together. You will be completing the one you started today next week.

Have a great day!
