Blender's User Interface

In this video we will learn the ins and outs of Blender's user interface by dissecting the Blender "workspace" and the "editor types" which compose the workspaces. Understanding core components of Blender's user interface will make everything you learn in the Crash Course from here on out make much more sense.

Transformation In Blender

When you here the word "transformation" in Blender, this just means rotating, scaling or moving something in some way. In this video we will discuss three different methods of transformation. We'll also learn why the axis lines in Sensei Format are a single color and how to make changes to our theme. Finally we'll discuss a huge part of transforming things in Blender, that is "constraining" those transformations; the best ways and when to use them.

Primitive Transform Challenge

Let's put the transformation techniques we learned in the last video "Transformation In Blender" to the test and see what can be accomplished using only the top eight basic primitive shapes available in the "Mesh" section of Blender's Add Menu. We'll also learn a few more key techniques, that combined with the skills learned in the "Transformation In Blender" video, will help us become master Blender transformers.

In addition we'll learn about Sensei Format's "HD Shading" mode, how to use Sensei Format's advanced 3D cursor to instantly change an object's origin point to any part of it's mesh while remaining in Object mode, and a ton of other tips to help familiarize you with the basic concepts you'll need to grow as a Blender creator. When you're finished with this tutorial (and your own creation), head over to blendersensei.com and sign up for a free account so you can post your final render in the "Blender Crash Course Work Review" forum (which is only visible to members of the sit

Extrude Tech

One of the most commonly used tool sets in Blender and 3D modelling across the board is "Extrude". But if you're not experimenting with these simple tools while using vertex, edge and face selections, you're missing a lot. In this video, I encourage you to take a second look at how much you can accomplish with JUST the extrude tool.
