A great set of modeling tutorials put together by Guerrilla3G; take a look and learn about the basic concepts in 3D modeling. (Not Silo-specific.) Five videos: The Polygon, Multisided Polygons, Objects, Primitives, and Subdivision Artifacts.
Thanks! You can use Silo free for 30 days with no restrictions.
After the trial period expires you can continue to use Silo as a learning version which will let you modify and save models with fewer than 50 polygons.
