Topology is a structure of the polygonal mesh that forms the basis of a 3D model. Although topology is not visible in the final render or visualization, it plays a crucial role in determining the quality and performance of the model. Creating a correct and clean topology can improve the model’s shading, reduce load on a game engine, and allow to deformate and animate the model.
Here you can find useful technicks and tricks to make the topology
correct and clean.

Rigging is the process of creating a “skeleton” for the model, which serves as the underlying structure for movement and animation. This skeleton is made up of interconnected bones or joints that mimic the movement of a real-life object or character. Rigging is an essential step in the 3D modeling process, as it allows for further animation of a model.
Take a look at our guides to make the process easier and faster.
