A Cape BUG meetup will be held this week, Tuesday 20th (18h30-20h00) at UCT in Cape Town, hosted as part of UCT's LEG (Linux Enthusiasts Group).

Topics include:

  • This is a first time event so there'll be an introduction about the users who are present and when/where everyone uses Blender.
  • Touch base with an introduction to Blender to bring everyone onto a level playing field.
  • Talk about the Games Development projects for which some Computer Science students have been creating assets in Blender.
  • Brief coverage of Blender in production by referencing projects such as Tube and the Handturkey 48hour projects.

Those interested can join the Cape BUG group: and raise any queries, keep up to date, or get involved.

Time is at:
18h30 - 20h00

The venue will be:
Chemical Engineering Seminar Room,
Upper Campus
University of Cape Town


  1. I wish I was still studying at UCT. Sadly I am not in SA anymore. I miss my Alma mater(well expect the bloody stairs, genius idea to build a campus on a mountain)

    I wish you guys the best of luck, It would be cool to see more Blender users from Africa. That Google map of Blender Users is extremely depopulated when it comes to Africa.

  2. Would like to, but it's too short notice.
    Are there regular meetings planned in the mother city? Please, informations....
    Anyway, enjoy your evening. Next time, then.

  3. Only saw this now - too late :-(

    I'm a Cape Town based fan/user of Blender - and I use it commercially. (I am a Blender Foundation Certified Trainer too)

    Please give some feedback on what transpired or advertise some follow-up sessions earlier.


  4. Nice! Wish I could join!

    By the way: anyone here from Gauteng? Maybe we could organize something.
