Long time no Post
Opensource 3d of course remains a major part of my current interests. This year I’m trying to introduce 3d Opensource into the curriculum of the local art college where I am sometimes invited to teach. The institute currently uses some high end 3d software (Which I think an earlier system admin ripped into the intranet) to teach very basic 3d concepts. I don’t think they even know that you can actually use PLE versions.
By using Gsculpt, Wings, AOI and Blender to teach basic 3d institutes like these dont have to suffer potential lawsuits just because they aren’t remotely technical. (Software is a distant part of daily life in a fine art institution) Also these kids dont have to put up with the ridiculously complicated interfaces just to learn simple 3d ideas like modeling.
