Tools of trade

Hi, this is my first post on this forum and I am in a need of a help. Being that I’m new to 3D modeling and I am mostly interested in CGI animations I don’t know what ‘‘things’’ do i need?

Do i need penpad, or something like that so i can begin with modeling? Or any other ‘‘hardware’’?

Basiacally what do i need to get started?

Thanks for your answers :slight_smile:

For modeling, no. Just your keyboard and mouse.

A penpad (I assume that means graphics tablet) is of help to advanced users for doing 2D artwork, but I don’t think it helps with 3D modeling.

If you are just starting with modeling I’d recommend beginner tutorials for getting started.

Like what GodOfBigThings said, a tablet is only needed if your drawing/painting 2D things.

Only thing you will need is a working computer (which I assume you have), some perseverance, and willingness to learn. :slight_smile:
I’m pretty much new to the forums and modeling too, so high five for being noobs! :smiley:
