there was quite a bit of talk about SubD-Modeling again. One could spot a lot of interest, great faith in McNeel but – at least in my perception – also quite bit of unrealistic user expectation in terms of accuracy one may end up with (or RMA will provide).
I thought some of you might be interested in videos done by German Industrial Designer Claas Kühnen, who for quite a while already uses Blender together with Fusion 360 for Design ideation. He records his sessions for his class at a US-university and is generous enough to share them on Youtube.
All in all he has countless hours of learning material online, including a playlist which starts with the installation of Blender and getting the feet wet with SubD modeling. The linked videos assume some pre-existing knowledge and show mostly unrehearsed and unscripted Design ideation: Freely playing around with forms, without any sketches, directy in 3D – and if possible in ways which leave a lot of room for later changes.
