Can’t wait to check out the new release of this 3D modeling software…

Originally shared by David Fuchs

Blender 2.65 is absolutely amazing. I haven’t touched the application since version 2.04 and it has seriously improved. The image below was done in under five minutes. It is open source, and if you are into CGI, I highly recommend you check it out.

It really is unique in the world of 3D. It shouldn’t really exist for free, but it does.

I’ve used blender many times to fix bad STL’s instead of using netfabb.
import stl --> edit mode --> remove doubles --> recalculate normals
There are also now tools specifically for 3d printing.

@scott_maher that’s the amazing thing about it. Whatever the artists/engineers etc. want, it just magically appears sometime later in the program

I can’t do texturing at all, and while this is probably because I JUST STARTED using the program, I still get mad about it.

@Good_Night Check out UV unwrapping & seams. It takes a while to get used to it.
