I´m an Spanish architect, and have found your site absolutely nice and useful.
Thanks a lot for your work.
I´m a beginner in Blender and your tutorials are the best on the web.
Thanks a lot
I just encountered your website in a Google search for "Blender precision modeling". While still browsing its contents I am astonished at both the extent and thoroughness of your commitment to explicating Blender as an engineering tool. On behalf of those such as myself who are determined to explore the potentials of 3D printing (but don't have a great deal of money to support such interests) thank you for your diligence and perseverance. I look forward to the release of your Blender 1.6x guide!
Dear RAB, thanks very much! Your tutorials make Blender a really useful tool for my 3D printing business. The blender community is truly amazing and I hope I will be able to contribute something significant also; one day
GREAT site and wonderful tutorials.
A bit of a struggle with 2.63, but that is FORCING some learning.
I can't get very far with them yet, as I can't get the mesh plane to come up in right hand end view, despite setting the user prefs as shown in the intro tute it always comes up aligned to the "plan" plane.
Again, GREAT work - THANKS.
Great site mate, cant wait to see the updated Tutorials on Precision modelling, Keep them coming
I'm just getting into blender, and I appreciate that there's an entry level tutorial out there. Thank you ever so much.
Was delighted some months ago to discover your Precision Modeling Tutorial for Blender 3D. I ultimately decided against working through it all as Blender had been through major revision, and it seemed not practical to expend so much effort to learn with the deprecated version only to have to try and translate that knowledge forward to the current version(s).
My interest is as a home hobbyist woodworker wanting to learn 3D modeling software as a design aid. Sketchup (free) got me started quickly with its easy learning curve, and it was helpful that plenty of good tutorials made by woodworkers are available. Blender appears quite the opposite, at least to a modeling newbie—very complex and not intuitive, not to mention that it appears the woodworker community isn’t making use of it. Tutorials directed at doing what I’d like to do, cabinet and other woodworking design, just aren’t out there, but your bearing assembly work suggests that things I can do in Sketchup are doable in Blender, but done differently.
The possibility of doing accurate modeling and realistic rendering within one, free, software package keeps me very interested in Blender as an alternative to Sketchup. With that said, let me add myself to those anticipating your updated modeling tutorial.
I am an Mechanical Engineering,I thought Blender is only for doing movie anitmation. Now I know I can use it for free to design mechanical parts and print with my metal RepRap 3D printer. Very thanks for your detail turtoial.
Rob, many thanks for your precision model manual, though only using this program for personal pleasure, yours was the first documentation I found which did justice to the program and provided a valuable insight into its use for a new user. Thank you again!
Thank you very much. I want blender as a engeenering tool, and your tutorials are right what I need. They are really good and although I am Spanish it's easy for me to understand because they are well done.
