    The Makerbot guys are of particular interest to us Blenderheads as Blender is one of the main pieces of the toolchain they use for producing the G-Code that drives their 3d Printers.

    Oh yeah, and do you know the best part? The Makerbot is fully open source and kits are available for $750.

    Plus they have plans to produce an opensource 3d scanner, with plans available on the Thingiverse for printableparts for a scanner already.

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. I happened to purchase Issue 3 of Flash&Flex Developer magazine (issue 3/2009) and inside is an article titled "Blender to Flash workflow". I like blender and it's nice to see it getting "integrated" into other professional tools. It just goes to show you how valuable Blender is becoming. Keep up the good work.
