Blender (Free 3-Modeling Software)

Blender is a free, opensource 3D modeling software, available for all operating systems, including Linux based systems.

The software itself is very powerful, and very flexible. I had the opportunity to use Blender in a game development class I took as an elective in college, and within a semester, my class was able to put together a very simple 3D game, with some coding and basic models/animations.

As with most 3D creation software, it has a steep learning curve, but I found the interface intuitive after several sessions of use.

If you are a blooming 3D animation artist and would like to start working on projects without shelling out big bucks for software, head on over to the website and check it out.

Here is an animated short film "Sintel" made entirely with Blender by volunteers of the Blender Foundation:

Enjoy, and live free!


  1. I used to use blender, loved it :)

  2. If this doesn't require a 64-bit processor, I'm all over it... Most of the rest require 64 bit, and it's irritating!

  3. Love blender, it's as good as the high-end expensive modelling programs if you know how to work it properly. :)

  4. I wish I could do this.Looks great, and also a great blog, I'm following.

  5. Hm, I always wanted to make my own animated shorts, got some exp with 3dsMax, but I might try Blender it looks cool :)

  6. I have Blender already but I can't manage to create anything. This movie looks great, it inspirated me a little to practice 3d more.
