“Hard Surface Modeling in Blender” is a course created by Gleb Alexandrov from CG Masters Academy. The course is designed for those who want to learn how to create high-quality hard surface models using Blender, a powerful open-source 3D creation software. The course will cover a wide range of topics such as modeling techniques, texturing, lighting, and rendering. Gleb Alexandrov, a professional 3D artist, will guide you through the process, providing tips and tricks to improve your modeling skills. Through the course, you will learn how to create detailed and accurate models of vehicles, weapons, and other mechanical objects. The course will also teach you how to use various tools and techniques in Blender to create realistic and stunning renders. By the end of the course, you will have the knowledge and skills to create your own hard surface models with confidence.

Hard Surface Modeling in Blender
The hard-surface modeling industry is booming, no surprises since the love for hard surface creation has been strong for a long time! Now the amount of the opportunities out there for hard-surface modelers is IMMENSE: concept art for Sci-Fi movies, props for video games, real-world robotic design, 3d printing – you name it.

If you’ve ever seen the art of Daniel Bystedt, Master Xeon, Vitaly Bulgarov or Neil Blevins and any number of other amazing artists, you may know that feeling of awe and excitement… and frustration. Like, how do they manage to create such realistic, detailed models?

Maybe you have come across these too, we want to give a huge shout out to people who shared their modeling concerns with us on emails and Twitter…

Triangles and NGons are a headache
The boolean operations are really hard to master
Ways to create nice bevelled edges
Cutting holes into curved surfaces
General shading issues
Topology is a mess
Where to add edgeloops, how to control edgeflow
Creating smooth transitions from one shape to another

So basically we thought, what would it look like if we condensed all the knowledge required to get up and running with the hard-surface modeling, including practical AND theoretical stuff, and just put together a video course.

That’s everything you need to know to create robots and other hard-surface stuff in Blender. The comprehensive guide to the super powerful modeling workflows plus 6 hours of theory. All the right boxes ticked.

It’s like watching a whole Game of Thrones season, but about 3d modeling in Blender.

It probably won’t make you Vitaly Bulgarov, but you’ll feel WAY more confident about your modeling skills.

The first part of the video course, the side A as we call it, is aimed at the beginner users. It’s the essentials of modeling theory and primers and the showcase of the most popular modeling tools and techniques (6 hours).

The side B on the other hand, requires a pretty solid understanding of the basic modeling tools and principles, UI and so on. It’s aimed at the intermediate users (7 hours).

All the necessary .blend files are included

A Kitbash Set. Joints, hinges, latches, cables and many other things.

  1. Hi guys,
    I was hoping to download this course to watch on my upcoming holiday. But the videos do not download properly only getting audio track for most of the videos.

    • Hey, Nigel.
      Thanks for feedback. I just test all files in this course and all of these works fine for me. I use Google Chrome, Firefox and Opera as well. Try to use different browser if you have issue with online playback.

      And it is technically impossible to download only audio stream from mp4 container. You have to download video stream also. Probably there is a problem on your side. And use VLC player for playback.
      We design this site for online watching compressed video podcast so this is the best way of learning here.

      • Hi strawberry,
        I can stream the video by using Chrome, but when i play downloaded video using vlc, i only hear sound. have tried downloaded using IDM and classic way but both yield same result.

        • it’s most likely you have some issues with codec installed on your computer. You can not download sound track only. All files stored in cloud with similar codec config:

          AVC, 1280×720, 16:9, 30.000 FPS, 300 kb/s ~ 300 kb/s ~
          AAC, 48.0 kHz, 64.0 kb/s, 2 channels

  2. Why isn’t there a way to download the whole thing at once. It’s kinda tiring going through the list clicking one by one. If it was all in just one zip file, it would be great. But thanks for uploading this.

  3. oh cmon Mr. “strawberry”… pleaseeee put a link to download, who knows how long this site gonna take. by the way, you have a beautiful collection here damn… thank you so so so much for sharing to us.

    • But we don’t have a single link to the whole collection. I will have more time in July and August maybe will find a passion to create a torrent tracker.

      • That is awesome! thank you again Mr. Strawberry! i don’t mind at all to watch online, the point is that this kind of content doesn’t take to long for many reasons… best regards mate!

          • Is there any email got some issues on the website like to tell you about? If you can have private messaging with an account i like that. Or a form on this website to send question on support? Thanks

          • feel free to write in a comment section. If you do not want it to be public, just mention that.

  12. Thank you a lot Sir Strawberry! I’m from a very shitty country which doesn’t give me the opportunity to purchase those courses and I have a passion for 3D which I hope will take me out of here eventually. I’m able to learn faster than just watching youtube tutorials thanks to you!
