Reducing the complexity of your model can be important – whether the number of objects, the polygon count, the texture size, or any combination of these. Smaller, more efficient models can improve rendering times and allow you to use the model in real-time display (such as augmented reality, web display, iBooks illustrations, etc.) and even for 3D printing.
In this tutorial you’ll learn how to import an Adobe Illustrator file, Lathe it into a 3D object, use a linked Adobe Photoshop file to create a texture, and then render an image of the scene.
