Blender has a wide variety of modeling tools that can be used to create 3D models, including:
- Mesh modelling - this is the most common type of modelling. It involves using vertices and edges to form shapes.
- Boolean operations - these are operations that use boolean algebra and are used for creating complex shapes from simple ones.
- Extrusion - this is when you take a 2D shape and make it into a 3D object by moving it along an axis.
- Lathe - this is when you take a 2D shape and create a 3D object by rotating it around. It's an ancient machine, dating back to the early 10th century, that has been used in engineering for milling jobs.
