About Blender

Blender is a free and open source 3D graphics program. It is hard to summarize everything you can do with it. At a minimum, if you want to make 3D models of objects and animate them, and you are on a tight budget, then Blender is the tool for you. In fact even if you have a big budget, Blender may well be the tool for you too.

MakeSweet is not affiliated with Blender or the Blender Foundation in any way, we are just happy users.

Getting started with Blender

Done! Easy :-)

Seriously, Blender is one of the best community-supported programs we've ever seen, so for any problem you have help will often be just a quick google search away.

Getting models, materials, ideas...

We use Blender here at MakeSweet to implement the Picture Mixer. If you find a design you like there, just click on the “About this design” link and you can download it and use it as a starting point for your own experiments in Blender. If you make anything interesting, be sure and let us know. Enjoy!
