Seattle BUG report, next meeting announced


seabug1Oscar Baechler reports on last week's Blender User Group meeting in Seattle and announces the next one.

Oscar writes:

A week ago, Seattle's first Blender User Group (SeaBUG) launched with great success at The Art Institute of Seattle. Although there were some logistical issues in the beginning, Blender users from throughout the Pacific Northwest packed the classroom, with Prophetic Sky, Inc handing out promotional copies of Townrs Defender. Presenters showed off a multitude of projects, tutorials and experiments, making SeaBUG an action-packed event that easily filled the six hours. One thing was clear to the attendees: none of them realized so many talented Blender users existed in the Seattle area.

seabug2Another SeaBUG is planned for Saturday, December 5, 2009. It will once again be held at The Art Institute of Seattle, North Campus, room #104. Walk-ins are still encouraged, although you can also RSVP at

Additionally, the yeoman Blendermasters of SeaBUG are taking suggestions for tutorials. If you have a specific topic you'd like to see covered, email [email protected] and we will try to put some learning materials together.

Be there!

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. User groups are awesome,
    very nice too see you got a fully equipped place with lots of computers available !!
    I hope that lots of people will join your group and learn from the other users.
    Best luck and regards!
