1 rating

Do you want to start creating 3D models and animations using free and open-source software? With Blender, you have the freedom to use a tool that will help you put your creativity to work for multiple formats.

The release of Blender 2.8 was a massive milestone for the software and brought a lot of attention to the software as a reliable and accessible platform to create digital content. With a revamped user interface and the adoption of simple standards from other graphical applications, you can easily state that it was a game-changer for many artists and companies.

In Blender 3.0, you find a consolidation of this evolution from the past years with a more polished user experience and cutting-edge technologies. We have an impressive Asset Browser for fast reuse of assets and lots of improvements in the rendering field, with both Eevee and Cycles getting optimizations from the list of new features.

With Blender 3.0: The beginner's guide, you will find a quick reference and detailed explanations about the essential tools and options.
