Get a good book about file formats, 3D programming, read the Qt documenation - educate yourself about the following topics (in any

- 3D file formats
- Texture formats
- File formats
- Affine transformations
- Algebra in general can be helpful as well
- 3D modelling with textures
- Learn a 3D modelling application of your choice (Blender, ...)
- ...
