This tutorial examines how to insert instances in the scene using various insertion behaviors built into the Resource Palette.
This tutorial shows how to model a quick drill bit using circles, conversion of objects into 2D Bézier regions, editing Bézier regions and the Skin tool.
This texturing tutorial for beginners shows how projected materials (cubic, cylindrical, spherical, planar, decal) are oriented to an object. This can help to understand why a material is behaving in a certain way, especially for cubic mapped materials. It was recorded with CX but can also be done with SE7.
This modeling tutorial shows how to use the Skin tool to create a teapot spout. It also shows how to convert this to a 3D bezier surface, perform some bezier editing on this surface, then finally convert to a polygon mesh. The final polygon mesh is edited and then has subdivision surfaces applied. Note that the first several parts can be done in SE 7, while all components can be done in CX.
This beginner/intermediate tutorial shows how to texture and render the whisk. It shows how to use luminous geometry, a spot light and how to use the Fresnel interpolator. The tutorial is done in Design 3D SE7, but can also be followed in CX.
This beginner/intermediate tutorial shows how to use Shapes and Instances to control the wire components of the whisk. Shapes/instances are important mechanisms for managing geometry data in a scene and this tutorial shows various ways where this is the case.
