What we're about

We're Blender 3D converts & investigators meeting in person for support, networking, and working on projects. Meeting once a month at least. There's plenty of resources [1][2][3] for learning this powerful and free and open source 3D creation suite [4], but we meet in person!

Who should join:
Anyone with an interest in 3D that wants to meet with other Blender tinkerers or professionals.

We're artists, makers, designers, animators, game devs, programmers, movie makers, educators, and more.
We're 3D beginners, to veterans of Blender and other similar software. We welcome users of Maya, 3d max, Lightwave, Cinema 4d, Inventor, Sketchup, pen and paper... who are interested in learning blender.

We love to learn and share our love for Art, 3d, design, motion graphics... and how it intersects with Blender.

Perhaps you're just interested to see what it's about or you want to expand your toolset and skills, you're welcome too.

What will we do: Use Blender. Share. Ask questions. Help others.

We're a friendly and informal group that adapts to the needs of our members.

If you like, prepare a short presentation: What did you make? What do you want to make? What's a problem you're running into?

It's a computer lab setting, so if you like, listen to others while you work on your own projects, or follow along with the presenter. We look forward to meeting you!
