Blender is a free, open-source tool for creating 3D designs, animations, visual effects, motion graphics, simulations, and models for 3D printing.
Is Blender Right for Me?
- Blender has an expansive feature set supporting 3D modeling, sculpting, animating, fluid, smoke, and particle simulation, soft body simulation, motion graphics, and compositing.
- Blender is completely free and available on all major operating systems.
- Blender is not commonly used in professional environments. While skills and concepts learned in Blender can transfer to other software packages, you should consider a package like Maya if you are interested in an industry-standard tool.
