Chapter 21. Special modelling techniques

Claudio "malefico" Andaur

21.1. Introduction

Relevant to Blender v2.31

Once we have overcome the "extrusion modelling fever" and started to look at more challenging modelling targets, we might start the quest for alternative methods to do the job. There are a group of modelling techniques in Blender which not only make our modelling job easier but sometimes make it possible.

These so called "special" modelling techniques involve not only some vertex manipulation but the use of non-intuitive procedures which require a deeper knowledge or experience from the user than the average beginner.

In this chapter we will describe these techniques in detail and explain their utility in several modelling applications which could not have been solved any other way.
