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. I used to be surprised to learn blender was being used by these great professional organizations; but no more. It's definitely pervasive. I love it because it just makes sense.

  2. i think the time of being proud of every tiny sight of blender in public should be over. Everyone who is serious about 3d graphics has heard of Blender by now.

    this underdog mentality seems more and more ridiculous.

    Stop fanboyism, start getting serious!

    • BlenderNation is the primary source of news for all things Blender. Since the Blender Foundation doesn't show a huge boast-list of its primary users (like the big commercial vendors do) this is the logical place to report such things.

      Think of all those disappointed people who wanted to get into 3D, looked at Maya / 3ds prices (and cried), and then found Blender. They still need to be convinced that Blender really is true - a fully featured program for no money that's worth learning. The more stories like this they see, the better for Blender.

      • sorry, but no.

        blender has passed the state of being unknown. many young students know blender from youtube already. a well done tutorial and great artwork is far more convincing than some niche 'sightings'.

        "Think of all those disappointed people who wanted to get into 3D, looked at Maya / 3ds prices (and cried), and then found Blender." I never heard anyone in the world has been put off by pricey software at the beginning. There is Maya PLE, student and classroom versions, demos, lots of pirated software, indie versions, old versions and so on. And if you are serious about what you are doing (or earning money with it) the initial costs are no concern.
