About This File

Here's a 1 hour 35 minute tutorial on how to model rounded style Dice using Subdivision surfaces. Although the tutorial is recorded using R16, users of earlier versions will be able to follow along as none of the newer modelling tools are used. At the end of the tutorial there's a short section on applying materials. Because of the changes to the material system in R16 I show doing the materials in both R15 and R16. Only very simple materials are used as this is a modelling tutorial.

This tutorial is hosted on Vimeo. If you head over there you will be able to download the original high res version rather than watching the low quality streaming version. The download button is for downloading the final scene file (Both R15 and R16 format).

I am impressed. Especially, I like your consideration withe owners of previous versions (I have R15).

But although the explanation was beautiful, I could not figure out what is the Subdivision Surface is about. I could not see any change in my model after I applied it.

I would like to add that I like your voice and your perfect diction. For me it is very important since English is a second language to me and I am hard of hearing.

Thank you.

​Without the Subdivision object the dice won't be rounded and smooth plus the spots on the sides won't be round. The mesh object must be a child object of the Subdivision object. Sounds like this isn't the case in your scene.

3dKiwi,

I was wondering - I know this is a bit old, but why not just use a sphere, a cube and a boole object? I got similar results (could have made it much better with more time) in about 10 minutes...

I would like to hear your opinion.
