Creating a VR Scene using FREE 3D models from BLEND SWAP

Hello!
Today, I will introduce you a easy way to create VR contents that I want to recommend to those that are afraid they are not good at art.
What we are going to do is, to use free 3D models and STYLY, and create a VR scene.
First, let’s find and download free nice 3D models from a site called “BLEND SWAP”.
BLENDER SWAP

BLENDER SWAP

BLEND SWAP is a site that was made to share 3D models created by the 3D modelling software Blender.
You will probably be surprised by the quality of the models in the site.
We can even use these models by free, so there is no reason not to.
In this tutorial, I am going to create a StarWars sky battle scene in STYLY, with the help of BLEND SWAP.

Trying to create a VR scene from scratch is very hard if you have not decided on what you want to create.

But if you first try to create a scene from your favorite movie or manga, it’s not that hard, and is very fun!

I hope you try out creating your favourite scene with STYLY!
