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. To be honest, I started with Maya! When i changed over too 3DsMax it was a real struggle. When i changed over to blender it was hard but i preferred it over max.
    Either way changing to another application is always a huge adjustment!

    that said I so have my issues with blender like no save prompt when exiting.
    and the OK? prompt when deleting an object.
    but there are so many things i prefer over Maya, or any of the others.

    but you build muscle memory.
    Like when i downloaded boxcutter and hardops it takes getting used that way of working even if it reduces the number of actions you take.

    Some of the proposals are a little silly to be honest but some would be really nice to see as an option.
