13 contains a large number of video and text tutorials. If you're new to Blender this may be an excellent way to get up to speed quickly.

From their introduction:

This is your resource for Blender videos,  tutorials, tips, hotkeys and more. It is geared towards people who are either migrating from another 3D program or are entirely new to 3D. There will be different video tutorial series depending on which category you fall under: "New to Blender" or "New to 3D." All tutorials on this site will always be free, just like Blender is.

For those of you who are well-versed in 3D with another program, don't let the subtitle of "A Site for Beginners" offend you. Think of it as a site for newcomers that will cover the basics of Blender to get you started more quickly.

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. Wow.
    This is a really nice site.
    Lots of beginners tutorials, all made by him self.
    Absolutely worth taking a look.

  2. Hey that site is really cool. I wish had these when I try to pick up Blender again a couple months ago. I put these to good use. Thanks guys.

    This site looks kind of cool.

    It would be even cooler if there were any kind of contact information to suggest other content to the site author.

  4. Hi everyone. Im switching from 3dsMax to Blender.

    Im in search of a reference plane tutorial.

    I saw this vid but I cant find the UV face select mode. "".

    It will be useful if anyone tell me how to setup reference planes or point me to some updated tuts.


  5. These tutorials are excellent. Coming from Lightwave these are great and have really helped me to get up to speed with Blender. Kudos to the author. I would like to thank the author, but do not see any contact info on the site.

  6. Wow! This site is excellent! It doesn't matter that much of it has been covered, it's about reaching a wide audience and supporting the product - instant bookmark for the hitkeys-page's readability alone, let alone the excellent tutorials! I haven't experienced any techsmitch squeals either! I hope he offers AVI for offline viewing too some time - didn't see it if it's there - that'd be great.
