Alex Delderfield in Designer Spotlight at Shapeways


Our very own AD-Edge (who used to write for BlenderNation) is featured on the Shapeways homepage this week with his Minecraft models. He talks about the history of his project and how they went viral.

My favorite quote:

How did you learn how to design in 3D?

Mostly self taught, but I have to credit a lot of it to the community which surrounds Blender. Without the community there wouldn't be the amount of support, documentation and tutorials there are these days. Especially now with the more serious sites that have popped up, focusing on providing high quality tutorials.


About Author

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)

    Thanks everyone for the comments!
    Was quite exciting to see a spotlight/designer article posted on Shapeways about myself and my work(s) :)

    Is there no copyright attached to Minecraft figures, or are your figures just based on the minecraft style?
