Day Two - Afternoon

How the 3D technology is changing the way schools teach design, the creative careers and the marketplace


Modo® is a powerful and flexible 3D modelling, texturing and rendering toolset platform used by some of the world’s most creative brands in the market. It empowers designers and artists to develop ideas, boost creativity and explore richer content creation and sharing. During this session, we’ll demonstrate the use of 3D modelling across various industries (fashion, automotive, media & entertainment, design, advertising, arts) and Modo's impact improving creative, engineering, production, marketing and retail processes. We will also address the ways Modo and 3D design can be included as part of standard curriculum and what are the tools, opportunities and enriching experiences the platform brings to teachers and students.

To finalise, the attendees will have the opportunity to take part in a hands-on Modo workshop. With the support of the Creative Specialist, participants will learn key concepts, experiment with different sets of tools and create their own 3D assets.
