Go through this guide to learn the commands for installing open source Blender 3D software on Ubuntu 22.04 Jammy JellyFish Linux.
Blender is a free open-source 3D program that can be used to create 3D models, photorealistic images, and animations. We know such animations, for example, from films like Shrek or the Pixar productions Cars. Furthermore, Blender has a built-in game engine with which interactive content is possible and is fully programmable with Python.
Blender is licensed under the “General Public License”, which means, among other things, that anyone can use the program free of charge. Although Blender is free, it is very powerful and comprehensive. It doesn’t have to hide behind expensive commercial products. For a glimpse of what Blender can do, check out Sintel, the latest short film made with Blender.
This 3D graphics creator platform is constantly being developed by the Blender Foundation and a large community and the number of fans has continued to grow since the first release in 1998.
Blender is available for the common operating systems Windows, Linux, and Mac OS and can be downloaded from www.blender.org.
