I graduated out of college almost a year ago and while I don’t have much interest in going into the artistic side of computer graphics, I love 3D modeling. I started back in high school with mostly AutoCAD and Inventor (We dabbled a little bit with Viz before it merged with/became 3DS Max) and while there was a period of time in college I didn’t model, I did manage to take two classes that offered modeling and I remembered how much I enjoy sitting in front of a computer working on such projects. I enjoyed modeling parts and other objects; for instance, in high school I reversed engineered a pair of noise canceling headphones, and in college I designed had a pocket knife, chess piece, and a robot printed out using a 3D printer.
I loved every minute of it and I realized I wanted to make 3D modeling my career. Now I was wondering if anyone here knows much about where I should be looking and what I should specifically do. I look around the various forms here and I see people posting their work of characters and other great works, but I’m more interested in things like parts and inanimate objects. I figure that what I should be looking for is something industrial or in the prototyping area of the field. Does anyone have any thoughts that they could share with me please? Thank you!
