New Course: Making Design History & Theory Fun

Welcome from Design Foundation 3D: Shape and Form by Dave Schultze

Design Foundation 3D: Shape and Form is an innovative new one-hour course that offers a refreshing take on design history, theory, and insights. Author Dave Schultze demystifies a variety of 2D and 3D design principles, and then provides real-world examples of what works — or doesn’t work — and why.

The material is presented in an engaging and sometimes irreverent manner with images, videos, and personal stories from Dave. Check out this fast-paced tour as it covers topics ranging from grids and axes to designing with humor.

0 Animation Course has Fantastic Start

In its first week of release, the course “Animation with Rhino and Bongo” is going crazy! Its the best launch of any Rhino course I have done for So far, over 600 people in 56 countries have seen it. That is A LOT for a two-hour & 30-minute commitment.

If you don’t have a account, you can still preview 10% of any course. If you would like to join, it’s only $25 / month or unlimited viewing. Here’s a link for a free 10-day trial. Nice!

Now under development, the next course will be quite a bit different. It’s a new ‘mini-course’ format, where the work is focused on a single project and is completed in less than one hour. The goal is to let people ‘jump in & out’ and be able to finish it during a lunch hour. Stay tuned.
