Introduction: How to 3d Model a Coin

Not everyone has awesome 3d modelling skills.. but there are some things that don't require that much modelling to begin with! and with todays technology, anyone can create something that has a professional finish using free opensource tools.

here i'l show you how to model a simple 3d object that will end up looking a lot more sophisticated once your done. I'll also show you how to put it up so others can see and appreciate your effort.
