Beginner Tips?
I apologize in advance if this is a redundant post. I am a visual/UI designer with a focus on logos and print work. I am looking to leverage Wings as a new toolset, are there any tips and or resources that i should look into?

RE: Beginner Tips?
Lincoln, welcome to our community.

We don't have a proper thread related to beginners stuff - something to do. Smile

One important thing to remember: Wings3d talks to you by the Information Line - the bottom one.

Unfortunately we don't have somebody working on Windows3D's documentation, so it was just started. Sad
I can recommend the Dictionary of the Wings3D help by tkbd that works like a huge online reference card. Very usuful.

In Interface & Usage you can find pinned:
- Collection of Tutorials
and the post Beginner Wings3D Tutorials by oort

The are also some others I listed in the Wings3D fanpage at Facebook answering Lorembolo Bolo:
Quote:We can find a lot of videos at YouTube, but most of them aren't more than basic. We have to prospect them:
- You can find some on Wings3D Channel:
- "Dinosaur With a Robot Eye" has two good tutos about swords:
- "Julio Sanchez" has a sequence of good tutos too (in Spanish):
- "ArrowTips" has a sequence for Urban Modelisation (in French):
- "Age of Armour" has the best UV tuto I've seen:
- Maybe you can find some of my videos useful too Smile:

Image/description tutos:
- YODA tutorial by Ken Brilliant:
- Peter Chovanev tutorials:
- PuzzledPaul tutorials:

The PuzzledPaul's tutorials are a classic and I recommend to take a look on it.

Wings3D had its UI changed recently, but most of its operations are still the same, so if you want to spend some time watching a video talking about it I can point only this two:
- Basic Wings 3D 1.4.1 Tutorial Series, Part 1: Understanding the Interface
- Wings 3d Tutorial - Beginners, How to Get Started in NEW version 1.5.4

Any doubt about the Wings3D use can be asked to the community (if you don't find a existent answer) in the Interface & Usage session.

Good look. Smile

RE: Beginner Tips?
One tip would be , don't use the smooth command till the end of the modeling process, add edges, polygons...

puzzledPaul gets a total recommendation from me too, that's how I learned all the years back.
