3D Digital Design and Applications

Practical Applications Of 3D Software



45 Hours

Start date: October

Course Length: 45 hours

Location: InnoCentre, 72 Tat Chee Avenue, InnoCentre, Kowloon Tong, Kowloon, Hong Kong

*A professional certificate* will be awarded by Krystal Institute upon completion of the course.

Students will use Blender, a powerful open source software, to learn about 3D creative media production including 3D modeling, texturing, UV editing, character skeleton setting, video lighting simulation, and animation key frame setting.


The course will teach the theory of 3D media production and the operation of Blender from the beginning to the end. From the interface and common functions of Blender to model topology and character creation, students will learn the complete 3D animation production process and get started quickly through this course. The instructor will demonstrate a number of 3D media production cases and answer students' questions on the spot, creating a harmonious classroom atmosphere with close teacher-student interaction.

Each case study is accompanied by an assignment for students to complete on their own so that the instructor can assess the students' knowledge after the class. By the end of the course, each student/group should be able to complete basic 3D character design and simple 3D animation sets independently.

What you will learn

  1. Blender: a powerful 3D software with good application prospects and functions

  2. Learn to make simple 3D character models which can be used for making games and animation

  3. Learn to create 3D models mainly using sculpting tools

  4. 3D modelling with a focus on solid models, mainly for illustrations

Course Description

  1. A multifunctional and free open source 3D software.

  2. The course guides students throughout the design process, starting from initial

  3. design to the final product, in order to prepare students for different application

  4. scenarios, including making video games, models that can be used for 3D printing, and scenery illustrations.


Introduction to Blender's basic structure

and operation concepts

Starting from scratch, students will learn and understand the production process of Blender 3D models and applications of the software. For some of the key functions, there will be several practice opportunities to help students have a more thorough grasp of the software's applications.

(3hours per lesson, Total 3 lessons)


Making sculpture-based models of monsters and other creatures

This topic focuses on using the Sculpt tool to sculpt and manipulate creature models with large areas of curved surfaces and complex textures.

Making low polygon

computer game character models

The final goal is to build a game world. We will begin with using simple geometric shapes to make different characters.

In addition to the basic characters, game-related items such as objects, buildings, terrain and backgrounds are all modeled in a simple way, making it easier for students to master the prodcution workflow. From modelling, coloring, motion processing to rendering, every step is desgined to fit together with the subsequent game production and generation.

Modelling through rendering static illustrations, such as city scenes, space bases, etc.

This topic focuses on the use of editing tools to produce and handle large-scale scenes, as well as various mechanical structures.

The first step into the 3D world"

Blender Modeling and Animation Production Seminar

Krystal Institute and Nang Yan College are jointly organizing a series of DECT career courses, focusing on professional techniques, practical tips and spiritual insights, so that those who are new to the field can find the know-how to take their professional skills to the next level.

At present, commonly-used 3D software in the market are either too simplistic, or paid. If you want a sufficiently functional and free software, Blender is the best choice.

In this seminar, we will introduce several areas of application for Blender, mainly through practical demonstrations. First of all, we will show and introduce the process of making Low-Polygon models, which are mainly used in game production. Another featured project is to use the sculpting function for making figurine models. Together with 3D Printing technology, the ultimate goal is to make your own figurines or model accessories.

Quota:30 participants

Length:1.25 hours

Language︰Activities, sharing and Q&A sessions will be conducted in Cantonese
