Are you looking for a different kind of project to get stuck in to with your Code Club? You are? Then we have just the thing!
We’ve created a set of new Blender projects to introduce your club members to the world of 3D design.
What is Blender?
Blender is a free software programme which allows you to design 3D models and animate them. It is similar to the software that games designers use to create virtual 3D worlds and characters for computer games.
How can my club access the Blender software?
What can we create?
We’ve put together a series of eight projects using Blender, suitable for more advanced coders or secondary school clubs. No prior knowledge or experience with Blender is needed, and the projects gradually increase in difficulty as your club members progress through the series.
Add and move objects to create a party hat for the Blender monkey with our Party monkey resource.
