Blender Logo Tutorial 1
By christian (Flux)
Use illustrator and blender
Step 1. Create a logo
Okay so we start in illustrator with a new document! (u could also use inkscape). Create
a document with these settings:
Then import the logo u want to make in 3D.
I choose the logo from liverpool football club (I hope u like it crazy:P)
We want to make a shape from this logo!
To make a shape from a logo there are two ways to create:
First option: Creating a mask to select the contours so illustrator can make a shape out
Second option: Creating the logo with pen tool (i’ll show u how to do this in the
We will use the first option!
So if you click on the logo there would be something visible in the upper tool bar:
then click live trace and select in right section of the upper bar a button called:
When u done, select
in the left tool bar!
(somethings could be different if u work in another workspace to select same as me go
now have the same workspace)
selected we want to select the white background behind our logo mask!
Tab backspace to delete (make sure u delete the background not the vector)
now we have this:
Its now time for blender!
Step 2 . Make the logo 3D
So now we open blender
Then press “x” then delete
To delete the cube.
To import the logo we need a svg file
How to save illustrator doc to svg?
See? Thats easy!
So now we imported the svg file:
? u cant see anything?
Thats because our logo is very small we will resize it to a good shape.
But first make sure u select all the objects (to see this zoom in with middle mousebutton
and rotate a little with middle mousebutton pressed and move the mouse)
Also delete the white parts in the logo! Remember “x” delete?
Then select all and make a mesh
(u could also press “alt” “C”)
now u have a group mesh to extrude them all press “tab” then “E” then “G” wait a sec
and press “Z” then drag it up.
Now do that with all parts!
Select a color in material
And select red
Ore what ever u like
This was the first part of the tutorial
Next part i’ll show u how to animate and how to make texture’s and a nice scene!
