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. Well, that's what I just kidding.
    Nice render. Did you use bullet to arrange the objects in the jar?

    So here's something I've always wondered. Why is blender called blender?
    Is it because it blends every kind of graphics software into one?

  2. Thanks you guys.
    Yep stephen, I used bullet (game engine).
    About the name, I've always wondered that too. Wikipedia says the name was inspired by a song by Yello, a Swiss electronic duo, from their album Baby. Good to know:)
