The Concept of 3D Modeling

3D modeling is the process of connecting vertices with lines and surfaces to create solid objects. Unlike clay modeling or bronze modeling, digital modeling does not naturally give objects the appearance of texture instead the objects will appear to have smooth surfaces. Realism is thus achieved by creating a surface on to which a texture can be applied. The surface in 3D modeling is called a mesh.The ability to create a proper mesh for 3D modeling is achieved through practice. Creating a proper mesh is probably the only skill that really matters for a beginner. Hence learning the tools of mesh creation are of paramount importance. If a modeler does not learn the basic steps of mesh creation they will never be able to advance toward the other more complex tasks required for successful 3D animation.
