Each of the 3DMadeEasy.com training titles is split into five different areas
Introductory Series – Working from a starting point of showing you how to start the software, the videos on this page will walk you through a carefully structured series of exercises which will give you an excellent grounding in the basics.
Spotlight on Skills - The exercises in this section are slightly longer and will introduce new tools, skills and concepts with each new task undertaken. You can either work through them in the given order, go straight to the one that looks like it can solve a specific problem or simply just catches your interest. Each exercise is supported by a video tutorial which will illustrate the task and walk you through its completion.
3 Minute Hot Tips – Every sketching tool and every modelling tool has a bit of hidden functionality or some hidden feature which would typically take you a long time to find. View these short videos to pick up some new information about each tool
Some Neat Tricks – There are a variety of skills and short cuts here which will allow you to work quicker and more effectively.
FAQ Video Vault – subscribers to the site are invited to ask for advice in solving various problems they have up against in their modelling. Feel free to watch any video responses which are much more conversational in tone to see if you can pick up on anything useful. Why not ask a question via email if you have an issue that is not covered here. CAUTION – given the nature of these videos, these videos go into a lot of detail, and, as a result can be lengthy. Plenty of gems of information can be picked up here.
