In today’s workshop, we were shown the basics of Blender. Blender is a free, open-source 3D modelling program. Blender can be used for basic tasks such as creating and illuminating 3D text, but has even been used to make movies (such as Sintel).
I have past experience with a program like this having used Google SketchUp in my A-Level coursework, but this is far more capable and powerful than SketchUp.
We are going to start by learning the basics; making shapes and text, doing lighting etc. and then hopefully move onto more complex and interesting ventures.
