Box modeling is a simple strategy I use to help students get started when making 3D objects
Starting with a box (hence the name of the method) you can select polygons and choose to duplicate, extrude, scale, or transform them.
These objects are simple and thus robust enough to 3D print. This is a LOM print, a delicate but detailed form of 3D printing.
This student started with a line drawing of a wolf and she split it up and used box modeling to create this standing form.
This student chose to make a modular design like a puzzle, inspired by furniture and architecture.
One student wrote code within a 3D modeling software to make randomized skyscraper like structures.
These are 3D prints of those 3D structures.
A different design from another student who experimented with repetition and the introduction of new shapes
This student was working with dolls that reflected her culture based on her own drawings. The modular based figurine had a variety of heads.
Another figure by the same student
We experimented with printing the inverse of an object in the shape of a mold for metal casting. This was a piece made from Britannia metal.
As students become more comfortable with the methods of modeling their only restriction is their imagination.
This is an organic model, a toadstool. It is difficult to find methods of modeling that work for creating organic structures.
