Chapter 2. Beginning with Modeling

Now that we know how to handle the interface, we're going to take a look at the basic principles of modeling. We will learn how to create geometry, modify it, and build our own model from scratch.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • What's under the modeling tab?
  • Basic Modeling
  • Modifying your mesh
  • Making copies
  • Editing the mesh
  • Working with vertices
  • Working with edges

What's under the modeling tab?

This first part will cover the main procedures to work with when you are in the modeling phase.
