3D Modeling

"Always design by considering in its next larger context–a chair in the room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city."

- Elliel Saarinen

THE DETAILS

3D modeling is the art of designing in a 3D environment using computer software. 3D modeling is an in-demand skill as many professions rely on 3D designs and representations. Career opportunities in 3D modeling include architecture visualization, product design, gaming, entertainment, medical animation, crime reconstruction, VR, and manufacturing to name a few.

In this WorkKMYX, you will learn not only the fundamentals of the 3ds Max software but skills to make presentations, feedback strategies, collaboration techniques, and workflows. The program is self-paced and conducted online. Additional support is provided with live online labs and private one-on-one sessions with industry experts. Upon completion of the program, you will earn a 3DTraining 3ds Max program completion certificate, have a portfolio of projects, and a reference letter based on your work during the apprenticeship portion of the program. You will have the ability to reduce the time taken to gain professional-level software proficiency from years to just months using this methodology.
