The First Beer that will Make You Smarter

English

Hi guys!

Would you like your child to become a designer? More specifically a product designer? OK, there are plenty of other activities that you will think about way before that one. But keep in mind that these guys can make your daily life a dream or a hell depending on the way they create and influence the objects and tools we use. Continue reading

Life is a Learning Curve

English

Hi guys!

We all know what a learning curve is, right? If it’s a valuable thing you are learning, the beginning of the curve will be almost flat for a while (with small bumps). Then, when all the pieces you learned will start to match together, you curve will go up faster. It will become steeper and steeper and steeper. That’s the beauty of an exponential growth and that’s the beauty of learning design with 3D modelling tools.

At the beginning, you have fun. Then you start to think that you could model something fun and nice. Then you see yourself creating something fun, nice and useful. Then you hit the ceiling of your current knowledge…

And that’s when Thomas Edison comes in. This really creative mind is supposed to have said:

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

Think about it one minute. I am sure you had those moments when you wanted to give up because it was becoming too hard for you (at least, it was your feeling). But you decided to go on, found the right tool, the solution and finally conquered a new victory.

You will have that experience very often while learning a 3D modelling software, Blender for example. I still do from time to time. That’s the beauty of it. If you are never challenged by something you already know well, it starts to loose interest, it becomes boring. This situation will never happen with Blender.

The next time, I will show you what you can do with your learning curve using Blender. You will love it!

Stay tuned!

How to Design Star-shaped Earrings with Links – 3D Printing with Kids using Fusion 360!

English

Following from our earlier vlog about designing a heart-shared earring with links, here’s how you can quickly change the heart into a star to create a star-shaped earring with the same links. (Ok I should have softened the points on the star to make it more comfortable to wear!)
