Apple Watches CGI (Part 1)

In this Blender 3D product CGI class, Ethan Davis begins work on a CG ad-style image of two Apple watches. He startes by modelling the Apple watch straps, before moving onto the display blocks and the watches themselves.

As you follow Ethan through the process, you’ll see him demonstrate a wide range of the tools and techniques he first introduced in our Blender 3D Basics course.

You’ll learn how to begin modelling with primitive shapes, how to work with edges and faces, how to use tools like Extrude, and so on. You’ll also pick up tips for using modifiers in Blender, adding textures, and more.

By following Ethan’s simple instructions, you’ll quickly develop the skills you need to produce some great results in Blender.

Questions? Please feel free to ask them in the comments section below.


  1. Hello, where are the files and textures to download?
    Some part of the modeling process is missing, in the description it is said that the process is given step by step but there is practically nothing in the modeling section, only one of the parts of the watch or even the watch case.

    Will this be the case in all CGI classes?

  2. Hey, I was wondering the same as Jeff? Can we find the mentioned project file download anywhere? I’m having trouble with the end of the strap..

  3. Oh no…right when Eathan wanted to explain how to do the wobble on the edges of the boxes, he gets stopped. I was looking for this for ages.

      Hi David, there’s many ways to wobble edges in Blender. You can do it manually by having a few subdivisions and using proportional editing, or there’s a modifier called Displace, set the image to a noise texture, and adjust the scale and strength accordingly. I highly recommend the Displace method which you can see me use in the lipstick tutorial. Thanks!

      1. Hi Ethan I have written several times but I have not managed to answer me if so Karl but has not been able to solve the fact that the files you comment on in class, are not on any side to download as well as the textures, in the second video is the conversation I had with Karl in case you want to read it. I would appreciate it if you uploaded the scene and links of the textures my subscription has an expiration time of this month.

        Thank you
