I've tried learning Blender in the past and had little luck, but this was a perfect little introduction to how to use it. And the added focus on 3D printing helps teach good modeling techniques. Highly recommended.

I saw this course as a 4-week challenge, strictly following all the instructions step by step. To get the most of this training, students have to fulfill every task, including creating own designs and 3D printing them out. That's the only way to digest Blender in this crash course. Jason is very supportive and responsive, and great fun too!
