Course: Blender Basics – Introduction for Beginners

Get Started with the Basics of Blender

If you’re new to Blender then you’re in the right place! Through this free course I’m going to walk you through your first steps with Blender, helping you conquer the initial learning curve. This free course is designed for beginners, even those whom have no experience with 3D whatsoever.

I will help you start moving in 3D, showing you how to navigate Blender’s 3D viewport and how to add, remove, and manipulate objects. Additionally I’ll introduce you to Blender interface, helping you overcome it’s quirks and use them to your advantage.

Next steps?

If these Blender Basics have piqued your interest then the next step is to learn modeling. Lucky for you we have a complete course designed just to get you started with the Fundamentals of Mesh Modeling in Blender. The mesh modeling fundamentals is a part of our Citizen membership, which is built specifically for aspiring Blender artists like yourself, enabling you to ramp up your skills quick through clear, concise, and structured learning.

    Just about every time a new Blender comes out some feature is renamed, moved or replaced. So when I’m doing tutorials that use previous versions I run into confusion. Is there a version history that documents feature changes?

    What about using it with a Mac? I have no 3rd button and can’t figure out how to move around the box.

    Yep! I second kkwainscott.

    Thanks for making sense of Blender, especially by going with LMB operation which helps those coming from other packages.

    This, and ‘Release Confirms’ in the Preferences/Editing pane really provides a little familiarity.

    This video was a very nice, slow, and non-overwhelming introduction to Blender.
