How to get clean topology?

Week One Class
In this class, we´ll cover variety of examples with different approaches, and discuss which ones bring the cleanest and production friendly results.

We´ll answer following questions
Why does pinching happen?
How to avoid mesh distortion?
How to properly approach topology workflow?

How do we know where to start?

Week One Class

In this class, we´ll cover multiple examples with variety of approaches once more, and discuss the results. We´ll try out boolean workflow, we´ll do topology cleanup, but also try more natural workflow where topology sets the rules for the shapes.

We´ll answer following questions
How to start modeling process?
Which workflow to use? Boolean or SubD and why?
How to clean up after booleans, or start in SubD?

How to model complex objects?

Week Two Class

In this class, we´ll answer biggest question of them all. How to model those complex objects?
We´ll do breakdowns of various forms to understand how they are made, and how combined together we end up with complex objects.

We´ll answer following questions
How to deal with complex designs?
How to break down complex forms into simple ones?
What type of edge flow to use, when to use it and why?

Robotic Head Demo Project

Week Two Class

In this class, we will work on a demo project to explore all the established rules. Can we break some of the rules, and if yes, why is that the case? We´ll explore ways to simplify and plan our workflow for the most efficient results.

We´ll answer following questions
How to plan and optimize our modeling time?
Is clean topology always important?
How to get clean topology on final models?

F.A.Q.
Is all content available once I decide to take this training?

Basic and Intermediate Topology Study will be available the first week and Complex  Topology Study will be available the second week after you enroll. This schedule will make your learning more linear, making sure you are ready for challenges that come with later classes.

If I purchased Maya or C4D Masterclass, can I still take this workshop?

Yes you can. This workshop is an extension to the Class Two and Review Videos, where we´ll dive deeper into topology rules with various case studies.

Can I follow the workshop in Blender too?

Yes, you can follow the content in Blender too. The topology rules are universal and they apply the same in every polygonal software.

I am a beginner to 3D modeling, can I still take this training?

This training is very beginner-friendly and has linear training curve. We start from the basics and theory of 3D modeling, then we slowly scale up in difficulty. The complete training is step-by step guided. We do however assume you would be familiar with very basic topology rules and basic software operations.

Can I ask questions in case I do not understand something?

Yes you can! We have a Private Discord Channel for everyone enrolled in this course. You can also share your project files, and receive an in-depth feedback on your progress in one of our weekly/monthly review videos in Class Six. That way you can be sure you are on the right track.

Do videos have subtitles?

Videos will have option to toggle on auto generated closed captions.

Can I download the videos or is this online only training?

This is online only training that contains videos, writen text and images.
