Today ! worked on GCN in the beginning of the morning. I managed to finish all the GCN training videos. I then watched the getting started blender tutorials. Then I watched 1-8 of the user interface fundamentals. I opened Blender and practiced a bit of what I learned.
Today I only watched video tutorials. I got to finish watching the user interface fundamentals. I started watching the object interface fundamentals. I got through videos 1-6. I practiced a bit on blender to get better at memorizing the shortcuts and to practice a bit of what I learned from the object interface fundamentals.
I kept watching more blender tutorials today. I continued working on object fundamentals. I got through videos 7-18. I didn’t get through as many videos as I would have liked because I had to leave for a short while. I learned thing like how to rotate and move objects. I also got to learn how to randomize objects so that not everything would look the exact same. I practiced these things on blender.
I kept watching the 3d object fundamentals today. This morning I worked on practicing how to grab and rotate objects by working on the puzzles on the blend file. After that I watched videos 18-29. Some of the interesting things I learned were about the 3d curser and parent objects. I also learned how to manipulate the origin of an object. Then I learned how to organize a scene.
Today I completed watching the 3d object fundamentals and began watchin modeling fundamentals. I got to watch videos 1-11 there. One of the interesting things I learned about were objects. faces and vertices. I also began learning more about edit mode. Then I learned about the extrude tool.
I continued to watch objects fundamentals. I got through videos 12-24. One of the interesting things I learned was using the knife tool. I practiced using the knife tool to cut windows on the house in blender. I also used the inset and extrude tool. I also practiced using the spin tools.
Today I completed watching the videos going over modeling fundamentals. I watched videos 25-43. Instead of trying out a bit of everything on blender I brought a notebook to write notes. Doing this made me be able to watch more videos in one day. One of the interesting things I learned was the add-on tools and how many there are. Now I am starting to watch the car scene modeling videos.
Today I continued to work on the body of the car. I managed to get into the basic shape of a car. Then I started to add more details and fix a few things around it. I then took a quiz over blender basics and continued to work on the body of the car.
I continued to work on my car model today. I started off pretty strong in the morning but then I got stuck. The Intersect Boolean Tool wasn’t working for me at all. I asked for help from a few people but none could figure out what was wrong. The tool still does not work but I don’t have enough time to figure it out today anymore unfortunately.
This morning I finally got the wheels fixed because the Boolean tool wasn’t working. I asked for help and figured out the problem. I finished that and then I started trying to finish the body. I got the body done but now I need to work on the fenders. I have run into another problem so I need to ask for help tomorrow morning again unfortunately.
This morning I still could not figure out how to make the second fender. I didn’t want to waste the whole day trying to figure it out so, I instead started to work on the other details. I managed to finish the lights and the bumpers with only a few problems that a managed to solve.
This morning I finally got the broken fender fixed. After this I added a carrier to the top of the car. Then we had a tornado and earthquake drills. When we finished drills I got back to work on my car and added smaller details like the car mirror and handle. Once that was done I added the cars sci-fi engine. Finally I finished one of the cars nozzles.
The first thing I did today was finishing my cars nozzles. After finishing them I added the cables below my car. Then I added the luggage into the carrier. Finally I started to work on the cars smooth and sharp edges.
The first thing I did this morning was finishing my cars model by making it smooth. After that I started to work on making rocks for the mountains in the background I only managed to finish one of the mountains before our class started discussing our class t-shirts. Then I signed up for Taiga by making an account.
This morning the first thing I did was work on my mountains for a few minutes. Then I got into a small group to work on a math exercise. Once we were done we all took a safety quiz. After the safety quiz we went into more detail about safety around the lab. Once we finished with that I continued to work on my mountains.
