Tutorials Setting up blueprints in Blender Okay, to start out your going to need to get an image of the blueprints you want, I've chosen to use the BMW M5 (E60). After you have chosen the image you like you're going to need to take it into a photo editing program and cut out each picture and save it in its own view. For this one I just used MS Paint because it is a free program just like blender, you could also use The Gimp, which is also free, but MS Paint is all you need for doing this. Now that you have that set up go ahead and launch Blender. If you still have the setup in its default format it should only be showing one box for the 3D model.

It’s hard to beat the look of evenly packed points. I used this problem as my first experiment in xsi ICE. I’ve been playing with this idea for years and years, and I’ve managed to make my programs do smarter and smarter things to produce these kinds of distributions. But for this first foray into ICE I used the good ol’ dart throwing and dart rejection method.

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. 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.

Blender/Custom Shield I use Blender, and I was very disappointed to find that the only version of this tutorial is for 3D Studio Max. Here's a Blender version. I've tried to be very thorough and not omit any possibly important step. This is for a shield, but it would work with weapons in more or less the same way.
