Nitrox3d Non-Destructive Modeling Course

by Chipp Walters in Models

Hi everyone! We're proud to release the NITROX3D Course which consists of 10 videos in 3 Tracks (1,2 and 3) which walk you through, step-by-step, using Blender's own modifiers to create non-destructive hard surface models-- models which you can continually edit and update until the design is "just right."

NITROX3D is not an addon, but rather a workflow that works with Blender's existing modifiers.

The NITROX3D workflow (Non-destructive Iterative Techniques for Rapid Object eXploration in 3D.) enables you to quickly model in a parametric-like workflow, much like the expensive CAD systems, but without all the overhead and cost. While NITROX3D cannot model everything (a car, a character), it does work well for a surprisingly number of products and ArchViz models.

Includes 120+ minutes of compressed* training videos** PLUS all source files, textures and lighting rigs.

* Our videos are created to be as efficient as possible. Each video typically has over 100 edits to make sure you don't waste any time learning!

** Both 1080p and 720p videos are available for download and streaming.

NITROX3D-01 (10 min) | INTRODUCTION

An Introduction to NITROX3D and why you may want to consider it for your next design project.

NITROX3D-02 (20 min) | ENCLOSURE BOX

The most basic explanation of how NITROX3D works.

NITROX3D-03 (20 min) | CUSTOMIZE YOUR STARTUP SCENE 

Customizing your startup scene to take advantage of Blender 2.8 new features to help when using modifiers to build objects

NITROX3D-04 (18 min) | MASTERING THE BEVEL MODIFIER 

An explanation of many of the tricks you can use with Blender’s bevel modifier to create the shapes and objects which make up your non-destructive product. All source files included.

NITROX3D-05 (15 min) | SONY HEADPHONE AMP BREAKDOWN  

A detailed walkthrough of the Sony headphone preamp model constructed entirely (including KIT OPS connectors) using the NITROX3D workflow.

NITROX3D-06 (12 min) | CREATING MACHINED RIBS TUTORIAL

This video goes over how to create a non-destructive rib pattern for die-cast, machined and injection molded parts. 

NITROX3D-07 (7 min) | HOSPITAL STAND part 1

This video goes over the basic stand and dissects the parts which are the "low-hanging fruit" of object creation using modifiers.

NITROX3D-08 (12 min) | HOSPITAL STAND part 2

This video explains two different approaches to creating the curved stamped and punched metal tray top for the stand. It uses a variety of unique modifier approaches which are sure to get you thinking!

NITROX3D-09 (7 min) | HOSPITAL STAND part 3

A most unique approach on creating the base for the Hospital Stand. It uses the subdivision modifier plus a couple new wrinkles on how to quickly knock out a complex form with only a couple modifiers-- while keeping it fully editable!

NITROX3D-10 (8 min) | HOSPITAL STAND part 4

How to create the casters and caster housing. This tutorial walks you through the most complex part of the model while sharing with you a number of new ways to think about your model.
