Want your Blender models to look different than the default gray? Then you're going to need to use some textures. Read through our step-by-step tutorial to get a grasp on textures and the UV editor, then use what you've learned on your own objects to make them look real!
Sometimes in Blender, an object you're modeling is too complicated to model in a single object, so it's easier to make two (or more) objects and then merge them together later. However, it's only easier if you know how! Here's how to merge together objects in three different ways.
Wondering how to set a background image in Blender? Read this tutorial to stop switching between software and reference images!
Both moving the camera and moving the viewport are simple tasks in Blender, once you learn how. Introduced as a free, yet powerful 3D creation suite, Blender remains a very popular choice for 3D printing enthusiasts. Here's how to find your way around.
Your 3D model isn't printable? Check out our guide to the best STL repair software for fixing STL files, plus tips on how to repair STL files.
Vertices are key to adding detail to 3D models in Blender. Find out how to add vertices in Blender through this simple guide!
Normals are a small but important part of your Blender model. They define what's "outside" and what's "inside" your model. So how do you recalculate normals that are facing the wrong way? Read on to learn more.
When working in Blender with a large scene containing many objects, it can be easy to lose track of things. Fortunately, there is a way to group objects together for easy manipulation and organization.
Almost every digital model has a 2D texture applied to it. Discover the process of Blender UV mapping and work through an example to see exactly how it's done.
When modeling in Blender, models can sometimes have too many polygons, gobbling computer memory and adding an undesirable level of complexity. In this article, we show you how to reduce polygons in Blender.
Rigging is commonly used in animation, but it’s also crucial to simulations in Blender. Explore this guide to Blender rigging to complete your modeling experience.
Duplicate vertices in Blender can pose some real problems. Learn how to remove doubles in Blender with this simple guide.
Textures are crucial for achieving photorealistic renders in Blender. Discover Blender texture painting to make those cubes look as life-like as possible!
Although SketchUp is very popular and user-friendly, it lacks good renders. Converting SketchUp to Blender is a popular option, so follow along as we show you how to make the conversion!
Scenes can get messy in Blender, and sometimes you need to transform a bunch of objects together. Learn how to group, hide, and select all objects.
Check out our easy-to-follow Blender 3D printing tutorial to learn step-by-step how to prepare your 3D models for 3D printing.
Weight paint is essential to many aspects of the modeling workflow in Blender such as rigging, applying modifiers, and particle spreading, among other things. Explore this guide as we exlain Blender weight paint and show you how to use it!
