Hey, thats Blender on HP!


Blender as a unique selling point of new PC's? Christov Badenhorst wrote:

Just as a matter of fact, I ran into this add on the HP website, and saw a
glimpse of the greatness that is blender.

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. heh - nice.

    Let's not get too excited for more people coming to the Blender side. Unnamed screenshots of unknown programs don't help with the marketing of Blender much :)

    But cool none-the-less!

  2. That is crazy awesome! No way! It's about time Blender got that kind of recognition... but seriously... right on the front of the intro... crazy sweet...
    Colin Levy has gotta be flippin' out right now, or when he sees this... I would be for sure! Rock on, Colin!

  3. The comments remind me of a little joke when ubuntu first shipped on Dell computers as the default OS.
    They showed Desktop and laptop banners saying "Ubuntu by the popular demand", but the stickers on the cases were showing "Windows XP"
    They were flamed XD

  4. Great! But isn't this copyright infringement if HP used his artwork without permission? I would be fuming mad if they used something of mine without permission.

  5. Hi,
    I'm really glad to see blender in advertisement, it's good news... But I only wonder if they have the right to use his job, was it CC image they use? I'm not a finest law-knower, just wonder if every thing is clean and clear...

  6. that's great that blender is getting friends in every nook and cranny of various disciplines and industries! rock on!


  7. I was thinking the same thing NathanKP.

    It's nice to be made aware of new blender sightings, but it's kinda embarassing when it hits the front blender news page and everyone squeels :S

  8. Heh, trust Blender to look cool when you want to present something ;)
    We had some newspaper guys coming over to interview us so we had to look smart and all technical. Simple, stuff Blender on the projector with lots of split views and highly technical looking IPO curves and wireframes. Oooh.
