3D Modeling Course:
Learn Constructive Solid Geometry

The self-paced and self-graded interactive hands-on 3D Modeling course in NCLab is the first of its kind (U.S. Patent Pending 14/172475). It is 100% web browser based and does not require any other software. It resembles a computer game as students beat levels and earn points and certificates. Instead of learning with a professional-grade commercial CAD system, which is known to frustrate students and turn them off, they build their 2D and 3D models by writing short programs in a simplified English language. The course emphasizes fundamental math and geometry skills that students can apply to any software. Students who take the 3D Modeling course in NCLab are known to improve their math scores, and to be able to quickly transition to any commercial 3D modeling software.

Build 3D Models by Typing Simple Programs

In this 3D Modeling course students build 2D and 3D models by typing short programs in a simplified English language. They are using keywords such as CUBE, SPHERE, MOVE, ROTATE and SUBTRACT. Students are not exposed to complex commercial CAD systems which are known to frustrate them and turn them off. Typing programs makes students focused, and they think harder instead of using trial and error.

Textbook

The course comes with a PDF textbook “Introduction to 3D Modeling – A Project-Based Approach”. The textbook closely follows the structure of the self-paced online course, and it provides more detailed explanations of all concepts as well as many additional examples.
