This is not a full-function release and, most notably, does not provide functionality to allow the figure to be posed. It does include examples of all of the different tools and techniques that this software will provide to enable you to easily model the anatomy of a human figure, although some of these functions are not yet complete and are not necessarily in their final form. This release also provides the 3D graphics community and the developer community with a preview of the functions that this human modelling application will provide. This is an Open Source project and it is hoped that artists and developers will be inspired to join in and help accelerate the completion of this innovative application.

Blender Underground's Video Tutorials. If you’re interested in using MakeHuman to generate models for rigging in Blender, then Blender Underground’s chief specialist, Penix1, has something just for you. He has posted a detailed three part tutorial on how to make use of MakeHuman models in Blender. Part 1 of the series even begins with instructions on compiling the MakeHuman source in Linux. Make Human to Blender Part 1 Make Human to Blender Part 2 Make Human to Blender Part 3 Come on in and have a look, it’s really quite well done.

Blender keyboard shortcuts and high-res printable hotkey map chart

" key in Blender? The following is a list of useful keyboard shortcut keys, commands and features that you'll find handy when using Blender 3D to model content for use in either Blenders own 'Blender Game Engine' or external third party game engines; it's worth getting to know them as they'll allow you to get the most out of the 3D application when modeling content for games. Keyboard hotkey & shortcut charts ^ A keyboard 'map' is helpful given how many shortcut and hotkey combinations there are in Blender. The following hotkey chart shows the basic shortcuts available for Blender. Blender 2.5 view properties, grid and clip distance setting. With the introduction of Blender 3D a number of changes and improvements have been made to the 3D application that long time users of the software may find tricky to find.

Blender 2.5 view properties, grid and clip distance setting

The following tutorial is a quick guide to where some of the essential functions game developers and modders need to customise in this new version of the popular free 3D program. Default layout and appearance ^ There have been a lot of changes to Blender 3D over and above pre-2.49 versions so that although the layout can be customised to suit, in the main, a number of 'features' present older versions had are now 'locked' or at least impractical to use the way one would have in the past - the 'Buttons Window' have been renamed "Properties" and whilst they serve the same function, the new layout doesn't appear to be as flexible when compared directly with the older interfaces - the panels can't as of yet be shrunk or re-sized - they are in effect, designed to work best the way they appear by default. Where'd that button go? When you open the brand new Blender 2.5 Alpha version, you will notice that a lot has changed.

Where'd that button go?

For one, buttons are now vertical, and most of them have new icons and names. Blender 3D: Noob to Pro. You are strongly encouraged (read as begged) to contribute to this book!

Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language. It incorporates modules, exceptions, dynamic typing, very high level dynamic data types, and classes. Python combines remarkable power with very clear syntax. Introduction to Scripting with Python in Blender. Realtime controlled robotic arm through Blender at BlenderNation. Justine Dailey published on his website few videos which demonstrate a great application of controlling external hardware through realime interaction with Blender.

3D scatter plots with Blender - Mathieu Gibert. Here is a little python script to import a set of points into blender.

3D scatter plots with Blender - Mathieu Gibert

This is a way of getting very nice 3D plot rendered by a professional software! Data_test.txt is a data sample file containing the positions (x,y,z), the velocities (vx,vy,vz), and the accelerations (ax,ay,az) of the particles (careful this is not the input file for the python script...) testPY.txt is the input file for the python script. It contains ten column : x,y,z,a1,a2,a3,r,g,b,size Where (x,y,z) are the positions, (a1,a2,a3) are planed to be angles that will represent the particles rotation, (r,g,b) are the RGB values for the color of the particles (in that case computed based on the velocity amplitude), and size is the diameter of the particles. Mapping the CiF and the Axis of Evil. First things first, I need control data for the axis of evil – to do this I’ve grouped some fairly black and white politicians and famous people and all you have to do is decide on their moral integrity.

Mapping the CiF and the Axis of Evil

As to working on the cartoon comment section map it looks like my worries about 3D graphing were unfounded. I already have a passing acquaintance with Blender. The solution is simply to write a short python script that will create objects and use the data points to place the object in 3d space. Of course one of the advantages of using a real 3d app is you get to play with lighting rigs, rather than relying on image transparencies to fake shadows and highlights: A render of the initial model for the graph base – axis transparency test.

Introduction to Blender Python API - Introduction Blender is a powerful 3D application for creating 3D images and animations and bring your creativity to life. The strength of Blender is its philosophy to provide a smooth and seamless work flow and tools for the artist.

By interacting with the multitude of buttons, menu's using keyboard and mouse you can create objects, sculpt them, rig those objects etc., and eventually render your scene composed of aforementioned objects. Apart from creating objects using devices, Python also enables you to create objects and other things using a scripting interface. Blender uses the awesome and user-friendly Python scripting language It provides extensive programming interface to match almost all the functionality of the application (hence called Blender Python API or BPY API).
