Resources for Blender3D users

Blender is software in which you can create 3D models for 3d printing, video game assets, architectural visualization. You can create a game, rigid body physics simulation, liquid and smoke simulations, animations, sketches, vfx, videos and more.

This is a short list of Youtube Channels for learning Blender:

    1.  Blender – you can find there a playlist of Blender Fundamentals, info about Open Movies and watch all of them. There are also playlists from Blender Conference (2017 and older).

There are more cool Blender related channels and creators and a lot of them create also other content. For each of those youtube channel you can find a website with additional content, but for the next list I chosen only few of them.

Some useful webpages:

  1. blendswap.com Download others’ models and upload your own to share them with the World.
  2. blenderguru.com Blender related articles and awesome renders showcase.
  3. cgcookie.com Talk about your creations with CG Cookie community.
  4. creativeshrimp.com More info about Gleb Alexandrov’s youtube channel.
  5. cgmasters.net Free and paid tutorials and courses.
  6. blenderartists.org/forum Forum for Blender Artists – ask questions, show your creations.
  7. blender.stackexchange.com Question and answers for Blender.

You can also join some Facebook groups, but in my opinion it is not worth joining to most of them. The one I can recommend is:

  1. Blender group – Full range of posts quality, you can find some masterpieces and a lot of garbage there. 60000+ users.

Blender has a lot of features so there are many other resources, websites, Youtube channels that one can recommend. For example there could be whole new lists for sculpting, textures, animation, vfx and so on. But this is enough for today.
