Learning a 3D graphic design software can help you tackle more projects and get more clients, but many designers believe the effort is rather costly and time consuming. That’s probably the case with very advanced and uber complicated 3D software like Maya or Cinema 4D.
There are however other 3D graphic design software that can deliver great results without the need to learn for months a complicated 3D toolset.
A 3D graphic design software that’s very easy to use
Vectary was created with this in mind - to make it easier for a beginner to learn 3D. Most of its key features are meant to shorten your learning curve and get you up and running in 3D design.
Here’s a quick video tutorial on how to get started with Vectary:
The best way for you to learn this 3D graphic design software is to start playing with the tools and see for yourself what each of them does. You can enable Interactive Help which explains, as you 3D model, what's the function of the tool you are using.
The workflow in Vectary is rather simple and you have pretty much everything at hand to create whatever you want. The first steps are easy: you search for a 3D asset, you drag and drop it from the library onto the scene, you add colors, materials, environments and lights, and then export it. Here are a few instructions we put together to help first time users get around the tool.
Once you’re familiar with the 3D software, you can learn the basics of Vectary’s Edit Mode and start creating your own designs from scratch. The key is to take it one step at a time, and before you know it, you can create a mug within minutes as you can see in the video below. It is a great exercise to understand how it all works and then move on to more complex objects.
Rainy weekend ahead? This looks like fun! ;)
