Blender Sighting: Tesla


West Rodri spotted two seconds of Blender in a recent Discovery Channel video about Tesla. Find the clip at 47-48 seconds. I'm not sure if this means Tesla uses Blender, or if Discovery edited in some '3D' footage (maybe someone from Tesla would like to comment?). Either way, nice find!

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. If you watch the video it becomes very obvious second 0:47 or 0:52 that either Tom Sepe or Obscura Digital use blender to previsualize installing projection systems into the Tesla. Tesla has very little to do with this whole thing.
