First steps: Blender for scientists

An important part of doing research is communicating your ideas, models and results to a broader audience. However, scientists often struggle with the visual representation of their ideas. An easy way is to create 3D models is by using a software like Blender, which is a free and open-source 3D creation software. Blender is widely used for creating animated films, visual effects and 3D printed models. With Blender, you can create high-quality 3D renders and animations of your models, experimental systems, or sample preparation steps, that one can use in publications or your thesis. Be curious!

In this Blender tutorial, I am going to talk about:

  • Software interface
  • Creating some simple 3D models
  • Setting up lights and camera
  • Rendering images and animations
