Blender - The Most Popular, Free, Open Source 3D Creation Software in the Industry

Updated: Sep 9, 2022

3D artistic creation is arguably one of the hottest industries nowadays, whether in the film or gaming/entertainment industry, or even in professional fields such as industrial design, interior design, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), which all involve the application of 3D technology. According to Verified Market Research's 3D mapping and modeling market size forecast, the market size of 3D mapping and modeling will be US$3.64 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach US$13.15 billion by 2028, with a compound annual growth rate of 17.44% from 2021 to 2028. This shows that the demand for 3D technology developers is increasing and attracting other professionals who want to enter the 3D field.

The industry uses a wide variety of 3D modeling software , such as 3ds MaxMayaZbrush and so on. In addition to these well-known 3D modeling software, if you are a lover of 3D modeling or animation production, then you must have more or less heard of Blender, a free open source 3D modeling software. Today, we will take a look at the functions and characteristics of Blender.

Q: What is Blender?

A: Blender is a free and open source 3D modeling software that runs on Linux, Windows and Macintosh operating systems and uses OpenGL for a stable and consistent interface. Blender was originally developed in 2002 by the non-profit Blender Foundation, which aims to provide a complete, free and open source channel for 3D creation. The software is currently managed by

Its subsidiary, the Blender Institute (2007), is the current location of the Blender Foundation offices. The Foundation is constantly developing new creative projects, updating and maintaining Blender, a community-driven project under the GNU General Public License (GPL) that gives anyone the right to make large and small fixes and changes to its codebase, resulting in new features, bug fixes and a better user interface. As a result, Blender continues to grow every day, gradually rising as a new force in the 3D industry.

Q: What functions does Blender have?

A: As an open source 3D graphics software, Blender can take care of all stages in the workflow of 3D production, including modeling, texturing, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, motion tracking, compositing, video editing and even game production. It can also be used in 3D printing design.

Q: Why should I learn Blender?

A:Whether you are a 3D hobbyist or a professional animator, Blender has enough features to meet the needs of most 3D creators. It can be used for creative design, making artwork and 3D printing. It's easy to use and simple to understand, so it's perfect for those who are new to 3D production. For those who want to use more advanced 3D production techniques and tools, Blender also offers 2D/3D hybrid oil pencils, physics simulations, scripts and visual effects for users to explore. If you want to learn more about the advanced skills of 3D production, design principles and Blender's operations, why not have a look at the 【DECT Career Programme: "The first step into the 3D world" - Blender Modeling and Animation Production Seminar"】 organized by Krystal Institute, where experienced instructors will share professional techniques, practical tips and spiritual insights regarding the whole design process, all while using practical examples to deepen your knowledge of 3D modeling and animation production.
