Tutorial: Creating 3D Blueprints


Learn how to create a cartoon outline effect. This tutorial is for Sketchfab, but it will work for regular renders too.

Last week, we staff picked Vincent Scalia’s Blue Print: Ravin’s Hands. It made clever use of some of the Sketchfab rendering settings and people were interested to learn more about this effect. Here’s how he did it!

In this tutorial I will show how to set up a stylized 3D blueprint for Sketchfab. Although I used Blender to make this asset, the options that will be used to make the setup are available in every major modeling software.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)
