Welcome to the site of Spazz3d lessons. Please remember this is a work in progress and we are trying to get these lessons to you as quickly as possible.
You will need either Spazz3d or Anfy3d INSTALLED to take this class. Anfy3d is a free program but can not be used to make the WRL's needed for items uploaded to CT. Spazz has a 30 day free trial and will give a discount if you have a job in Cybertown.
Each lesson will cover a general theme, we are hoping that when taken in order you will have a basic understanding of how to make objects and what will be required to upload them.
Or you may have a general understanding of the basics and just need help in certain areas, the lessons will be stand alone, so that you can choose what you need to learn next. Each new lesson means new fun ideas and shapes, so the more you learn the better your objects will be. And as with any new knowledge practice makes perfect, so feel free to try out your new techniques on other objects.
