To help students keep up with what will be a very fast paced class I created a wiki and some slide shows using Google docs. Currently it shows what I hope to cover on the first day. We’ll learn several methods of modeling a simple house in order to show how the same task can be accomplished in many different ways.
I’m teaching a new class at Community Fun and Fitness Center for beginner 3d modelers. We will be learning Google SketchUp, a very accessible 3d modeling package especially suited for geo-modeling and low poly-count modeling of structures and items for games. We will also be learning Google building maker, an online application for adding buildings to Google Earth.
Our focus during this beginner oriented class will be getting some buildings of our own accepted into Google Earth. We will learn create accurate models of houses and upload our own house (textured with our own photos) to Google Earth for the world to see.
The class plan so far has been posted on my private wiki benorona.com/wiki (look under classes).
