New Class – Intro to Blender!

blender_paxspace
Everyone’s heard of using Sketchup, Solidworks or AutoCAD to do some sort of computer aided design. The one that is often left out is Blender, usually because of its unfamiliar and very feature rich (read bad) interface . I hope this class will be a start to rectify that notion.

So what is Blender? As their website states,

… Blender is a free and open source 3D animation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation. Advanced users employ Blender’s API for Python scripting to customize the application and write specialized tools; often these are included in Blender’s future releases …

This class will mainly focus on the Modeling aspect of Blender and how it can be used to create objects that can then be 3d printed.

So stop on by your local Makerspace and attend our new class.

Both members and non-members are welcome! Be sure to sign up!

  2. Ok. Let me be the one to ask … What is blender?

  3. PaxSpace PaxSpace says:

    A full description of Blender is provided as part of the post.

  4. Really? Huh. I thought it was an external link … Takes a while to open on the iPad. Thought it might b useful to share something brief … Rather than a full description … here.

    It’s a pretty long description so we only link to our main blog posts from Facebook.

    Any pre-requisites or age limit?

  10. Paul says:

    @Theresa Ford, don’t worry! We will be having this class again in the near term (and this time with a little bit more notice)!

  11. Paul says:

    @mollee Currently there are not any age restriction nor pre-reqs. The only requirement be the student be familiar with using a computer. Other than that anyone is welcome!

    If the person of interest is a minor, a parent must accompany them but only one fee will be charged.

  12. Paul says:

    I must also mention that all proceeds from any non-members who wish to take this course are treated as donations towards PaxSpace’s general fund. I do not take any $$ for teaching this course (as anything with PaxSpace, no one draws any sort of salary or payment).
