Are you aware of if its easy to find a round dining table to seat 12?
For a long time I've been surfing online however I cannot find much more than
little kitchen tables

I really enjoyed your course Ryan!

I am designing mostly using Maya for Shapeways and I found your course really useful. It is a MUST SEE for any beginner.

Even if I use Maya since 2009 for my 3D prints, your course helped me a lot, especially the texturing section for color prints.
.ps: does the OBJ,X3D works properly when one uses 2 images instead of a texture atlas?

Thanx! :-)

thanks for the great feedback! for the full color prints, I recommend consolidating your entire model's textures into ONE map only, regardless of how many parts the model is made of. good luck!

Joseph, the tutorials are made in such a way that you should be able to follow them with only the most basic maya knowledge. probably a couple hours practice with the fundamentals is all you'd need to take this course. good luck!
