This is the first tutorial for Ayam, a free 3D modeling environment for the RenderMan interface. This version of the tutorial is tailored to version 1.7 (and up) of Ayam. We will do nothing fancy in this first tutorial, just a wooden sphere on a gray ground. But even if you feel like you know how to do such a simple thing with any modeling environment, please read on, as this tutorial gives also some important general handling instructions for Ayam.

1. The Ayam User Interface

2. Setting up Ayam

3. Creating the Ground

4. Creating the Sphere

5. Adding Material
