Hello Shapies new and seasoned! My Name is Lauren and I'll be helming our collective EDU efforts as your Designer Evangelist for Education. I'd like to start with this inaugural post to the Students and Educators-specific forum space. So welcome! We'll be posting new info and getting the conversation started here.

I eventually studied with the author, but something I found really great about this book is that it discusses 3d modeling tools and tips in a software agnostic way.
With so much software out there, it is hard to decide. After reading DIGITAL MODELING by William Vaughan, I found that while different software may have their own names for features, the tool's function overlaps from software to software.
