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 ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Nice tutorial, one thing though is unmentioned and another could be irritating. a) How do address a force field to a selected object - does this work anyway? b) Mention that you have to create different vertex groups, for newbees the vertex groups just 'pop up' somehow. More of this stuff is required, thanks Matt.
