Blender Conference: Experience your Blender scenes in VR with Sketchfab


At this year’s Blender Conference, you can try out your own Blender work in high-quality VR on an HTC Vive! The Sketchfab team will be giving permanent demos of the Blender->Sketchfab->WebVR pipeline. If you’ve never experienced real VR, prepare to be amazed :)

While you can watch any model on Sketchfab in VR, there’s nothing like seeing your own work in this way. So come prepared! Before the show, upload your work to Sketchfab (either just drag our .blend into the website or use the Sketchfab add-on that comes with Blender) and tweak your scene settings.

Finally, prepare your scene for VR by setting the ‘actor’ that defines the scale of your scene and the initial viewpoint. You can then also test your scene on a Cardboard viewer.

See you there!

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. Would love to attend if the tickets weren't sold out :/ its long overdue that the blender conference should be moved to a larger venue, lots of people are missing out because of that bottlneck.....
