3D in Windows 10 Tutorial: Create a volcano in Paint 3D


[MUSIC] Hi there, I am Becky Ho, and I’m
Product Marketing Manager for 3D in Windows at Microsoft. And welcome to our tutorial
of how to use Paint 3D to create your very
own 3D objects. Paint 3D is a great way to
explore your creativity and bring your ideas to life
in a whole new dimension. Today, we’re gonna show
you how to use Paint 3D to create 3D objects that can
improve your presentations, like a science report for
school. We’re gonna make a 3D volcano
that can be seen from all sides. Let’s get started. I’ve already used the marker
tool to sketch out the volcano that I wanna make in 3D. Now first,
let’s create the volcano base. I use a pre-made 3D
cylinder shape and match it up right up against
the line of my 2D drawing. Next I’m gonna use one of my
favorite tools called 3D Doodle to draw in the sides
of the volcano. And so here I’m gonna do a rough
outline of a volcano shape. Look how it instantly
puffs out into a 3D shape. I’m gonna do the same
on the other side. [MUSIC] Just drawing a general outline. [MUSIC] And now I have a canvas for
me to start working my design. And so, what I’d love is to be
able to start texturing on some layers and
some colors onto my 3D shape. And so I’m gonna click
on the sticker tool and click add a sticker to be
able to add a custom sticker, to be able to start wrapping
around my 3D image. This is a picture of
a volcano I found and look how it instantly
wraps on to my 3D shape. I’m gonna resize
the sticker to make it fit right on to my model. And without much 3D training, you can see how it does
a lot of the work for me. I click stamp, and because I’m working in
3D I rotate to the back, [MUSIC] And I stamp the back
of the object, and I move onto the other side,
and do the same. [MUSIC] And look how it’s already
starting to look like a volcano shape. [MUSIC] And then I’m gonna do
the same for the base. I’m gonna rotate the base
to face towards me, [MUSIC] I’m gonna choose
the sticker tool and resize it to fit right
onto my volcano base. [MUSIC] And then rotate it to the back
and do the same there. [MUSIC] So let’s take a full look at
the design, you can see it’s already starting to
shape up like a volcano. [MUSIC] And I’m gonna rotate to
the side, cause I wanna make my volcanoes look a little bit
fatter for the presentation. [MUSIC] And then rotate to
the other side. [MUSIC] Next, I’m gonna build out
the layers of the volcano. [MUSIC] And so, I rotate it to have
it looking towards me. And I’m simply going to use
the copy paste tool to be able to copy and layer on
different parts of the volcano. And you can see it’s start
to blend into each other, which is a super cool and
neat effect. So you don’t need
much 3D training, but what’s cool about this is
I can use the copy paste to be able to start building
on parts of my model. [MUSIC] I’d love to have a lot of
different layers into my mountain and so
I continue copying and pasting to be able to
add more dimension. [MUSIC] Cool, so it’s already starting to look like a volcano. Next what I wanna do is have it
look like the volcano’s been cut in half, because I really
wanna talk about the lava in the center of the volcano. So I move my volcano up to the
top and bring back my canvas. And here I’m going to use
the hard edge tool and start to trace the rough
outline that I’ve already done. [MUSIC] And then I am gonna do
the same for the other side. [MUSIC] Perfect, now I’m gonna
turn off the canvas and then use my handy dandy sticker
tool to be able to add a little bit more texture
onto that shape. [MUSIC] And then make sure
you turn it around to texture the back as well. [MUSIC] Perfect, so let’s bring back our model. [MUSIC] And move the center
pieces into the front. [MUSIC] So I’m going to use the Z axis, [MUSIC] To start to layer on different
pieces of the model. [MUSIC] So I’m gonna do the same for
the other side [MUSIC] And start to line up the pieces. So let’s take a look
at the model, [MUSIC] And let’s check it
out from the back. Whoa, so that’s looking a little
thick so I just resize it so that it’ll look more like
it’s been cut in half, and do the same for the other side. [MUSIC] And now we have a volcano shape. And what are volcanoes
best known for? Lava, so I’m gonna choose a bright
orange from my brushes, and use the spray can to be able to
color the center of the volcano. [MUSIC] And you don’t have to be
super precise about it, because what Paint 3D does is
instantly color onto different parts of the section. So I’m really highlighting into
the middle of the volcano, and it’s really bringing
a little bit more depth and dimension into my volcano model. And because we’re working in 3D, we’re going to switch
it to the bottom base [MUSIC] And then really get
into the bottom, to have the lava kinda flow out. [MUSIC] And then next, I’m going to
use the yellow spray can to be able to just add a little bit
more depth and color into it. [MUSIC] And I’m creating some rays as
if it’s spilling into the earth. [MUSIC] So let’s take a quick
look at our model, [MUSIC] That looks awesome. I love how,
in just a couple of minutes, I’ve created an entire
volcano model. Finally, let’s have
some lava erupting out. So I’m gonna click on the 3D
shapes, into 3D doodles. And then continue to sketch
out the outline inside of a volcano,
as if I have lava spewing out. And then I love how I’ve
now transformed this into a 3D shape. And so
I’m gonna use the Z axis tool to bring it more towards the front,
and then I’m gonna use the sticker
tool to add in a new sticker. Here’s the picture of
some lava I found. And then I’m going to add
this right on to my flame, [MUSIC] Just to give it a little
bit more color. Then I’m gonna turn it around
and do the same for the back. [MUSIC] How cool does that look? Looks like real fire
coming out of the volcano. So now we’re on a lava roll. So, next what I’m going to
do is turn it around and start to add in some
stickers to the base. I wanna make it look like lava
is spewing out of the volcano. And so, I wanna add
another custom sticker. And look how it stickers
right onto my lava mountain. And so here, I’m just gonna
resize it, stamp it right on, and then continue turning my
volcano and rotating it to have it look like it’s coming right
out of the top of the volcano. [MUSIC] Perfect. [MUSIC] With lava comes smoke, so I use the 3D doodle
tool to create a cloud. And so here I’m going
to group my volcano, move it down a little bit, [MUSIC] And then choose a gray color and
start to doodle a cloud shape. [MUSIC] And then I’m gonna use the Z
axis tool to move it to be right above my volcano, and
then I’m gonna use the sticker tool to add in some
cloud texture. [MUSIC] It’s looking slightly ominous
but super cool. So I continue to
stamp away, and then make sure you
turn it around and do the same
for the back. [MUSIC] Just continue to stamping on
the different textures to build this really
cool cloud effect. [MUSIC] And so I simply turn it, and look how cool
that already looks. I’d love to have some dinosaurs around my cloud
and my volcano to add a little bit more
color and dimensions. So I click on Remix 3D which is our online library
filled with thousands of 3D models And then I type in dinosaur [MUSIC] And look at what other people
in the community have uploaded. There’s a lot of really cool dinosaurs, but I really love this raptor. It’s ferocious and scary. And so you can see it’s
a full 3D model that I’m now able to insert
into my design, and I want to kind of have him leaning into the volcano, and look like he’s
climbing up a bit. That looks awesome. And so now let’s take
a quick look at our final design. [MUSIC] Well that brings us to the
end of the tutorial. To recap, we’ve learned how to
use Paint 3D’s tools and features to make a volcano that can
be shown from all sides. We even opened up the volcano to show lava from the inside. With Paint 3D, you can show more
details and visual depth in your work. Don’t forget you can also use
3D objects in Word, PowerPoint, Mixed Reality Viewer, Photos app,
and more. I’m excited to see what
you will create next. Thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
