You want to learn how to create jewelry with the open source 3D Creation Suite, Blender? Get to know the intricacies of jewelry rendering and 3D print preparation? Find out about techniques from jewelers and how you can emulate them in the 3D world, to create a perfect piece of jewelry?
Then this is the class you have been looking for. Be sure to also check out the resources for some cool bonus content, like the finished .blend file and the sketch!
My name is Gesa Pickbrenner, traditional goldsmith and self-taught 3D printing artist, and I will take you on a deep dive into Blender and the art of jewelry design.
The title ‘Foundations of Blender’ is no coincidence: This class was created as a jumping pad from where you can kickstart your journey into Blender. No matter if you are a hobbyist who wants to explore the possibilities of 3D printable designs with an open-source program, a jeweler who wants to get into 3D printing, or an artist who wants to learn a new technique for your arsenal – this class is meant as a resource for you to come back again and again.
You can pick and choose – whatever fits your learning goal. Are you a complete beginner? Many of the techniques are explained in-depth, so you can gradually advance from the first, basic lessons to the more advanced. Plus, you can lower the speed of the playback. Want to go faster and just find out about the special jewelry techniques? Just increase the speed and you’re good to zoom, or jump ahead into one of the later lessons where I talk more about the 3D print preparation and jewelry techniques.v
