    July 2018: Leonardo Ico







    1. Can you tell us a little bit more about yourself and your background?

    My name is Leonardo Gloria Ico and I am from Philippines. My moto is that I am not this material body in the world of shadow, but I am a Spirit Soul in the world of reality.

    I have a Bachelor of Science in Achitecture, Building Technology, Associate in Architectural Drafting, Dos and Computer Aided Drafting and Design Graduate. I also have Mechanical Designing and Planning experiences.


    2. What software(s) do you use?



    3. When and how did you start with 3D modeling and what was your first model?

    I started with 3D modeling during my Primary School education (3rd Grade), but it was only a pre-hand drawing and my 1st model was an aquarium.


    4. What are your favorite modeling subjects/themes?

    My favorite subject is houses.


    5. Are you also into 3D printing?

    Basically, no. For now, I only do 3D modeling.


    6. Is there any specific 3D model you are proud of and why?

    Yes, it is SAUDI ARABIAN RESORT 3D MODEL.  This was my first project in the Middle East and this design idea is from my best friend who is Saudian and he is a national artist.



    7.What was the most challenging project you have done?

    All projects are challenging, but I still think that the most demanding one was the Resort project. It took more than 2 weeks to finish it!




    8. As one of our most active members on PARTcloud.net, what do you find so attractive about it?

    I am attracted to the designs of the co-members and ideas related to my further development in 3D drawing.

    Maybe more advanced 3D models.

    My goal is to create the most advanced 3D model.


    12. What advice would you give to beginners?

    My advice for beginners is: rushing is not your best friend. You will see that 3D modeling is not as simple as it sounds. It requires perseverance. Allow yourself sufficient time to find your path through all the tricks of the process.
