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. First, really great animation!
    And the music is just fitting, perfectly!
    The picture got a great scale! Wish I could do that too :)
    There are just missing some explosions, and a helicopter falling down.
    We got a black hawk down ;)

  2. nice work. quick feedback that the barbs on the barbed wire fence were too neatly aligned and spaced and rotated on each wire. that was a bit distracting. real barbs are much more random.

  3. My recurring problem is : "How do I find it ?" on Blendswap.
    A search for "refinery" gives "oil refinery props".
    "albin" gives only albinos.

  4. Hello, please can someone explain why can't we download the Oil Refinery 3D model? There is no link for download of the model!

  5. Thanks for replying so fast! Because that is what the site says: "You can now download the .blend of Albin Merle's awesome Oil Refinery". If it is NO MORE available, then please delete that misleading direction

    By the way , could you advise me from where I can find some basic model of an industrial building, such as a power plant or refinery. I am studying Concept Art and one of the tasks is to build a scene using some free models.
