Learning Blender – A step by step beginners Tutorial for 3D Artists

A 2 hour and step by step Blender beginners course. All the way from basic navigation, setting up shortcuts, installing and mastering free and useful plugins, modifiers, tools over to modelling a 20mm Vulcan cannon round at the end to make it worthwhile to sit through the 2 hours. Oh and as well as making a render for it. 📸✨

If you are coming from 3ds Max like I did then you will find a few comparisons and references I make to it.

Who is the target audience?

As all ChamferZone tutorials these ones are aimed at beginners as well as intermediate. I try to avoid heavy use of shortcuts as much as I can during the lesson so that you can see which actions I use.
