2 Ways How to Delete the Default Cube without "X" and "Delete" [totally not a useless tutorial]

This is a very useful tutorial that is, in no way, a waste of time :D

You'll learn two similar ways on how to delete Blender's evil default cube without needing to press the "X" key and hitting "Delete".

But rather, you'll be pressing even more keys :)

  1. The interesting thing is that you can actually delete the cube with just one key, not two.

    The only requirement is a decent keyboard ;) with the "Delete" key.
    In fact clicking the "x" will ask you to confirm the deletion, pressing "Canc" will not.


  2. I have my default scene set to empty apart from the light and the camera. Never had to delete the default cube since I did it the first time!

  3. It's like a coder's way of removing. This is a good way to start a python coding textbook. bpy is, I guess, for blender python and ops for operations.
