8 Weeks With Blender: Dynamic Simulations


Ricky Grove continues his 8-week introduction to Blender and focuses on particle systems this week.

This is the sixth chapter of a series of posts about my experience working with the open-source application, Blender. I'll spend at least 30 minutes every day over a period of 8 weeks working directly with Blender and I'll post my discoveries, links, and ideas at least once a week. Obviously, I'm not going to cover everything that Blender can do, but I'll follow my own interests and share what I've learned with you.

About Author

Bart Veldhuizen

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. Sorry for not submitting this article through the news channel, Bart. It just slipped my mind. I'll be sure to post that way next time. Thanks for posting this and taking an interest :-) (PS love the particle system in Blender and will focus on it for my future creative work)
