100 Amazing Blender Tips

by Mandala Motion in Training

Will there be more tips?

Since I get this question a lot, I thought I'd answer this first. Yes, eventually this book will contain 365 tips - one for each day! In late may of 2019 the book will become 100 tips longer (200 Amazing Blender Tips!). Each time it updates you will be able to receive the update for free as long as you've purchased the book at some point. After 365 tips I will probably re-order the content so it will make more sense (grouped in categories: modeling, animation, etc). 

What is this e-Book for?

I often get understandable requests for slower or longer versions of my Daily Tips videos. On Instagram, where my Daily Tips originated, there is a 1-minute time limit, and making long tutorials is also not the point. However this is where this e-book comes in: here you can read those same tips at your own leisure, and with added explanation and pictures. I also want to make sure that I can help people when they are stuck: in case something is not clear, you may contact me with the contact info that is in the e-Book. My goal is to make it possible for you to start earning money with Blender, like me. 

About the author

My name is Jan and you may know me from my Daily Blender Tips, which I publish every day on my social media channels to more than 21k followers. As a producer of motion graphics and freelance 3D artist, I’m using Blender for a large part of my working day, which is why I often still find new tips despite already using Blender for 10+ years, of which 2 years professionally. 


How do I use this e-Book?

To go to a tip, click on the blue link in the Index. Sometimes it can still be useful to see the corresponding video on Youtube, which is possible by clicking on the blue header title on the top of the page. If anything is not clear, you can e-mail me at [email protected].

Which version of Blender is this for?

Most tips in this e-Book are for Blender 2.79. At the time of this writing, 2.8 is in beta and changes daily. Blender 2.8 won’t be in stable release until at least October 2019. However, some new exciting 2.8 features are still shown, like certain new Grease Pencil features that I just couldn't wait to show you. Around the time when 2.8 becomes the official stable release, you will receive a free update of this book, where the tips will be adapted to 2.8 where possible (some features of 2.79 may very well disappear, in which case I'll replace them with a brand new 2.8 tip).
