Thinking that it might be a useful skill to learn, I began dabbling with 3D Studio, on my own initiative, in 1997. This steamboat engine was my first 3D Studio creation, which I built as an exercise to teach myself the basics of 3D modeling. While I wouldn't consider myself a 3D expert, I believe this and the following 3D objects serve as examples of my willingness and ability to pick up new skills and put them to good use in my work.
