Dinosaurs may be extinct, but our evolving digital technologies can bring them back to life – dive into the art of 3D modeling in this full-day workshop!

Learn all about the background research required and the variety of disciplines that work together, often across international borders to create large scale 3D models like those on display in the Portals to the Past and Dinosaurs of Patagonia exhibitions. 

Then, try your hand at creating your own 3D dinosaur using the well known and freely available Blender software.

This workshop will specifically cover the following:

  • Creating a 3D model
  • Extruding, stretching and rotating faces, vertices and edges
  • The very basics of how to UV unwrap
  • Texture painting models
  • Rendering your model as an image in Blender
  • Exporting your model as a viewable file format

All equipment required will be provided. Live your dream of becoming the next 3D animator for Jurassic World Dominion, just for a day.
