Great Course for learning 3D modeling in Blender.

Giorgio Leoncini

This course truly taught me 3D modeling toolset in blender. The only topic missing was a tool for more accurate parametric modeling.

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!

Loved week 1, all information I had to find in several videos online before finding your workshop. Keep spreading the love with blender for 3D printing. Week 2 even better, if I've learned this much in just 2 weeks, can't wait to dive into the next 2. Week 3 continues to live up to the previous weeks of easy to follow tutorials and very exciting projects. I'm looking forward to and disappointed to start the last week of this beginner series. Well here we are, at the end of week 4. This 4 week class was amazing, I learned so much in a short amount of time and the teacher is just great, very patient and easily accessible. Look forward to more training videos and live podcast with you guys! Sad to see it end for me but excited to see it's future for you. Keep living the dream.

I was pretty intimidated by Blender before I took this course. This class really helped me to understand the UI and the whole Modus Operandi when prepping models for printing. There is not a lot of material out there for learning 3D modeling for printing in Blender and this really helped me out. Jason is really good at explaining the material and I honestly had fun with the course. I feel a lot more comfortable with the UI and can even use jargon and terminology with fellow modeling folks. I feel this served as a really good foundation for me. I can now understand and begin to follow other tutorials online. Its a really good class and it would be my first recommendation if anyone I knew wanted to get into the hobby as well. Thank you again to the folks who made this course!

Thanks so much for this great introduction to 3D printing with Blender. This into course is a great way to understand the basic skills needed to design and analyse a model to be printed. I took the course because though I was familiar with Blender, I wanted to understand the 3D print tab and the use of the boolean tools. This class was very helpful and I look forward to continued learning with Print That Thing!
