This is an unscripted learning session where Colin will teach a Blender beginner to model a cup. There will be a discussion about the various tools that can be used to achieve the goal, as well as an exploration of ways to improve the design, and export to 3d printing or rendering. This session is unscripted and casual, the instructor's focus will be on moving with an exemplar student, but attendees are welcome to follow along and interact in the session.
