Something I ran a LONG time ago on BlenderNation was the BlenderStation - show us what YOUR world looks like on the other side of that screen. It's only fair that I kick this off, so here's a view of my current work place.
This is where at least half of the BlenderNation work gets done (the other half is while having a beer on the couch in the evening ;-). On my desk: a 27" iMac, a piece of vinyl floor cover that works surprisingly well as a mouse pad, a picture of my son (he's almost six already, sheesh!), a 3D printed vase, Dolf's 'Blender for 3D Printing' DVD (still shrinkwrapped, sorry Dolf!).
The desk is just a piece of wood on some IKEA stands - I've used this desk ever since I went to university.
I now have a nice and quiet spot in the attic of my house. We added this office a few years ago and it's a great spot to work! If there's anything else you'd like to know, just ask.
For the next BlenderStation, I'd like to see what the desk of Jonathan Williamson looks like. Are you up for it, Jonathan? :)
I envy people who can work with Blender without a numpad :) Btw, How's the Magic mouse for Blender? Any downside to not having a physical buttons and the wheel?
Good point :) I actually have a regular full size keyboard and a Mighty Mouse that I use for Blender.
It's a nice setup you have there. Especially jealous of the plant.
Just need to enable "Emulate Numpad" :) I actually find this faster than numpads as the top row is easier to reach. And I don't switch layers much.
I find the bigger thing lacking is the numpad period, and access to the regular numbers for their normal functions.
I've found that 1 - 3 suits well for vert-edge-face mode switching and 4 - 7 for Pivot point center switching...
So in my workflow these keys are occupied already :)
I switch between these modes pretty often while modelling and switch to different views less often than the modes.
But 1, 3, 5, 7 and "/" of Numpad are very important!
I listed a few pictures of mine, it is in my 1000 sq foot basement office that I built for total privacy and relaxation. It has 130" projector screen in it with 1080p DLP projector. ZERO ambient light when lights go out. You cannot tell if its day or night in that room, which took some getting used too. Details of my system are on the photo entitled command seat. It is HP elitebook mobile workstation 8770W. It owns renders of immense detail. The Nvidia Quadro K5000M makes sure of that. Macbook pro with 27 inch cinema screen is to the right. Trusty little IPAD in between. The creativity in this place, especially at 630am in the morning is truly inspiring. I love working early in the morning, or playing whichever you like to call it. I suppose with us Blender heads it is up in the air if it can be considered work :). Need to clean up some, so excuse the random pieces of toys my daughter leaves out haha.
Command center :)
I had an imac like that in my work... and that magic mouse always was a headache to me, as it was the lack of a numpad in the keyboard.
Happily they bought me a PC (i7) and i'm fine now.
I don't use Blender as much as I'd like to, but it is slowly integrating itself into my design workflow. Especially for rendering in Cycles.
Here's my studio desk: http://pic.twitter.com/yc86EH3Fwo
I like to keep things tidy.
Oh look, someone else still using Graphire 3 :)
If it ain't broke...
I like this configuration of the tablet and keyboard. I think I will change my configuration to match your tablet and keyboard position.
Modeling looks nice, but lighting could be enhanced a little bit. Nice work Bart.
I just looked at the image, before reading the title and description of the post, and thought "oh meh, another room render."
Nice looking workspace!
It's always funny to see where another guy does his business :)
Here is my station, it is a tad dirty lol :P. Let's see if you can spot where my bamboo tablet is.
Is it to the right of the empty water bottle, with the paper package and all the rubbish on top of it?
yup! Ha ha :P
I was looking through all the pictures that were posted and I was getting kinda creeped out because they were all super clean and only had one monitor. Finally found a workstation that looks just like mine.
Here is mine. This post was quite a good motivation to actually clean up my desk... :)

ok the [IMG] doesnt work here, the picture: http://www.blenderartists.org/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=246611&d=137392445
why you still use the old television as a monitor? :3
Lol that's is not an old television, that's a CRT computer monitor (dell) from like 2005.
Its still works fine, no need to get rid of it, and the colors are excellent! Ill get another LCD when I fell the need for one ;)
Really the only problems with good CRTs are the power consumption and the size.
here's my workplace anno 2013
i also posted on the previous post 2 years ago.
and like the previous post yes that's an all red haf 922 case a gtx titan and dominator platinum.
indeed this was a good motivation to clean up my desk (sort of)
here is the long time ago post.
Dude here's my workstation. :3 http://johnnydwicked.deviantart.com/art/Desktop-Workstation-03-383998625
Here is mine! In fact as a video, because it's the best shot I have of my workplace... Even if there is a little character who has nothing to do there :P
Hey Marcel, il est cool ton bureau !
Repurposed broken HDtv that I fixed as a second monitor. My dad's old laptop repurposed with windows 8. My sister's old netbook with ubuntu. My swagged out 15in (s)macbook pro (2.4 GHz :( ,and Nvidia 256 gpu:(, 8gb ram, 1tb hybrid drive, a 120 ssd where the optical bay was) Bamboo fun, some mice and a keyboard. "Track, Match, Blend" and lets not forget the old guitar pickups repurposed as magnets.
Oh and dueling external 3.5 (1tb and 3gb) on the top right shelf and one 2.5 1tb behind the computer. Most of my stuff is repurposed hand-me-downs from other people.
Great post, Bart! And that's a nice looking desk too. :)
Here's mine, which is still under heavy work-in-progress. You'll see here my main machine which I use for generally of the stuff I do; the other rendering machine is in the other room though.
Sorry for the bad quality, I had to turn down the samples a bit. ;)
Our medical research facility overlooks the lake and mountains. Perfect for Blending (some of our "Blended" schematics are on the wall).
OMG!! Awesome place to work!
Wow , nice place!
Is it clear water?
Very clear. When the water's calm for a few days you can see about 8 meters deep (25 feet or so) along with all the cool fish. The lake is around 360 meters deep (1200+ feet).
That sounds amazing. How can you ever get any work done with a view like that?! :)
Here is my travelling one as I'm teaching Autocad in Lille.
2 Laptops : Asus G73JH but a ATI 5700 series and Dell Precision M6700 with Quadro 3000M (Much better for Cycles!)
Her is my blenderstation ow well it does much more
AMD FX8350 (8 core)
16 Gb ram
Nvidia GTX 660
SSD and about 9 TB of diskspace
Here is my BlenderStation, using the iPad to watch the tutorials (sometimes connected to the second monitor) and the Cintiq to follow the tuorials :-)
Here's my setup:
Okay, here is my workstation :)
-A PC with an Intel Core i5 3470, 8gb ram and a Asus GTX560 Ti OC 2gb
- a regular full hd monitor
- bamboo graphic tablet
- my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
- a blue microphone
- some pencils and other stuff you need
