In this second video on cubes, we look at the Rounded Cube Primitive and its settings. We will set the corner radius after the cube is created, preset corner radius before the cube is created, set the complexity of the primitive, and explore some of the implications of setting complexity and using the "Absolute" checkbox. We'll also talk about the one-sided attribute, and when it should be used.
This is a series of three short videos demonstrating some of the things you can do with cubes and rounded cubes. Conceptually, these shapes are very simple, but really understanding these primitives and their basic manipulation will help you greatly in your basic modeling projects, and more advanced projects as well.
In this quick video, you'll learn how to create 2D and 3D shapes with consistently rounded corners.
This is a tutorial for those new to 3D modeling. This will help you to understand how to use the modeling tools to shape a simple object, using multiple approaches to achieve the same goal.
This is a two part tutorial that walks through an interesting little projects which helps to demonstrate some of the render dialog settings. It specifically discusses what is called radiosity or global illumination and some settings that control this function.

Here is a brief tutorial on modeling the geometry of a Brilliant Cut diamond, starting from a cylinder, converting into a polygon mesh, and then extruding, scaling, connecting and deleting points.
