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. Only 9? I am so clumsy I can find dozens of ways to break things! but seriously, I never knew there were so many ways to use blenders dynamics in destruction (particularly cloth). I am having trouble with the zero stiffness cloth sim, I set it up and then the bottom vertices of the subdivided cube start to move upwards and almost looks like spiked fortress walls deploying around the cube. it may be a bug or I found another way to destroy things: social isolation :)
