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. Thanks for the tutorial! I didn't even know about dissolve, but have been looking for something with it's functionality since b-mesh was introduced.

    With blender you can really learn something new everyday. Thanks again.
