Polish Blender Book: 'Blender. Kompendium'


blender-kompendium.jpgPoland has a large and active Blender community, and now Kamil Kuklo and Jarosław Kolmaga have written the first Polish Blender book. It is now available for ordering.

Kamil writes:

Finally my book "Blender. Kompendium" is out. I wrote it with Jarosław "Galileus" Kolmaga and I have the honour to say that it's the first Blender manual fully written by polish authors.

It has nearly 900 pages, where the reader can find information about EVERYTHING that Blender provides - System Nodes, UV texturing, all the options from all the modes (Edit, Object, Texture Paint etc) and many others. Needless to say that you can find there all the information about animating in Blender or physics simulation (Soft Bodies, Particles and Fluid) with a proper exercises and exapmles (in .blend files, of course).

We wanted to write a book for both - people, who make their first steps in 3d graphic and those who are already using Blender. I suppose there's no better book nowadays in Poland... Because the date of it's publishing has been delayed a few times, it concerns Blender 2.43, but still it's absolutely current (99.9% of the options remained). Because our book includes dozens of artworks made by one of the best polish graphic artists, we would like to thank them with a help of your site. It's been a great honour for us to cooperate with (random order):

  • Adam "Nostradamus" Wnek
  • Grzegorz "Grzybu" Rakoczy
  • "JoAnna" Sochacka
  • Maciej "Morte" Halber
  • Patryk "Pysiek" Poturalski
  • Hubert "szczuro" Niećko
  • Kamil "Maqs" Makowski
  • Jakub Strykowski
  • Krzysiek ÅšlaziÅ„ski
  • Krzysztof "Gucias" Nowacki
  • Marcin "Kyuss" Piotrowski
  • Marek "Mrys" RyÅ›
  • Mariusz "Grabon" Klepaczko
  • MichaÅ‚ "Kwiq" KiciÅ„ski
  • Piotr "mecool" Mikulski
  • Tomasz "ETA" Szymski

I would also like to thank:

  • Ton Roosendaal (for his foreword - it has been a great honour!)
  • Mathias Pedersen (for lettin' us using images from his tutorial)
  • Calvin (for the inspiration)
  • Bernard Popko (for his patience)
  • Sylwia SoÅ‚tysik (for her help in translation)
  • all the administrators of two largest polish Blender sites - and

You'll find more information (in Polish) on the publisher's website.

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


  1. If all the non-English Blender books were translated to English as well, we Blender users will have an absolute wealth of Blenderiscious offline literature!

    I'm curious, why Polish though??

  2. Needless to say that our book is on the third place of our editor's bestseller list! I hope that the number of Blender users will double soon here in Poland!

  3. Heh. I already seen this book on shelf and I started thinking about buying it.
    I did not because all I found at the first look was feature oriented tutorials. Less about techniques itself or step by step huge tutorials. Next time I'll watch more closely what is in the book and maybe reconsider.

    It looks like this book deeply covers modifiers, constraints and physics. Since some of us don't have an idea about Polish language, Will it be possible to have an english translation of table of contents?
