Henri studied software development at the Tshwane University of Technology. Before joining the Naledi3d Factory in 2008 Henri worked at the Centre for Creative Technologies in Pretoria where he created highly detailed 3D models for the platinum mining industry.
In our industry low-polygon modelling is essential to keep real-time interactive simulations as small as possible. This requires particular skills that Henri has honed over time.
