This Modeling chapter contains three theory lessons and a lab. Topics covered include low-polygon modeling techniques, with a thorough explanation of what lies at the sub-object level.

Other techniques explained include spline modeling. Perform spline modeling by taking 2D elements and turning them into 3D volumes, with the help of modifiers and compound objects.

Also in this section, a practical lab illustrates several polygon modeling techniques to build an underwater scene.
