Q&A With David Hill
How was your learning experience with the Gemvision training instructor?
Jessica Smith was my instructor for my original training sessions and was fantastic. She was thorough and also helped explain some more advanced modeling techniques when completing the regular curriculum. She took the time to make some videos explaining exactly how to model the motorcycle project, which has increased my modeling ability immensely and helped me figure out other jobs.
Did you accomplish your goals taking the One-on-One training session?
Absolutely! I was able to complete the custom design project and, again, also further my modeling capabilities.
What do you think about the teaching approach?
One-on-One training is always excellent. The screen sharing is very helpful too. It can see exactly what the instructor is doing, and she knows whether I’m doing something correctly or incorrectly, addressing it immediately.
What do you think is the main benefit of taking the One-on–One training sessions?
Being able to move at your own pace and not get bored or feel pressured to keep up with others. I had never used any 3D modeling software, and it was effortless to learn with one-on-one training.
What improvements would you recommend to the one-on-one training sessions?
Honestly, I cannot think of anything.
Diamond-Studded Steel Horse
David created this motorcycle design using MatrixGold. “This was definitely the most involved project I’ve ever done. I set over 500 individual white and black diamonds in the headlight and wheels. It weighed almost 80 grams and was about 4” long when completed. And yes the wheels spin!”
