Blender: Modeling a Corona Virus in a few steps

in #blender2 years ago (edited)

Modeling a Corona Virus with blender


Add a Ico Sphere with 4 Subdivisions.


Select some Faces and enable Individual Origins.

Extrude the selected faces.

Extrude a second time.

Scale the faces.

Add a Subdivision Modifier with at least 4 Subdivisions.

I did the above steps with a few more faces and duplicated the virus some times. Then I got the following scene.

For coloring the virus, I designed the following two materials.


After assigning the two materials to the virus and setting the world background to red I start the rendering process and got the following result.


Then after activating the Depth of Field option in the camera settings end rendering again, I got the final result with some unsharpness in foreground and background.



Nice ... what is blender for program?

Blender is my favourite 3D creation suite. It's free and open source. Look here, for what you can do with it:
