Dear Glen,

I am currently learning to overcome my hesitation to start with blender. More and more I get the feeling I should have done so before. I find your tutorial very instructive and dynamic but not too quick. Thanks a lot for you help.

Kind regards,

Thanks Glen for a very good guide for moving and transforming objects in 3D space.

I learned alot with your video. Thanks

29. anonymous Tue, 27 Oct 2009 16:28


I am thankful that you would take the time to educate anyone who might be interested. That you might do this at all is a testament to you as a person, that you might do it so clearly is a testament to you as a teacher. Sincerest thanks.

Thanks so much for these videos...really helped learning blender!

27. anonymous Thu, 24 Sep 2009 17:03

Really surprised Glenn recommends not to use industry standard object manipulators

26. anonymous Wed, 23 Sep 2009 08:57

Fantastic tutorials! You got a great way of explaining things!

25. anonymous Tue, 22 Sep 2009 11:34

awesome helped me very very much. thanks

23. anonymous Wed, 05 Aug 2009 12:15

Very good, I found it very thorough, although you forgot to mention the property window that I was looking for (and found using the menu bars), where you can position the object in the world via coordinates.


21. anonymous Wed, 24 Jun 2009 08:58

Mostly understandable for beginners and review for experts, Good work!

20. anonymous Sun, 21 Jun 2009 10:57

18. anonymous Thu, 11 Jun 2009 20:41

Thanks! Keep up the great work.

17. anonymous Mon, 08 Jun 2009 13:05

I've learned more about Blender in these few short video tutorials than I ever did trying to read the documentation. Very helpful.

15. anonymous Wed, 03 Jun 2009 13:21

Extremely helpful tut, thanks!

This was exactly what I needed to become familiar enough with Blender to be able to follow the more specific tutorials. Highly appreciated!

13. anonymous Fri, 01 May 2009 23:03

Great vid! It's more informative than trying to follow a text based tutorial

This is my first knowledge of Blender (from a wooden clock Instructables web link) and that led me to your splendid ShowMeDo site. By the 4th video, I know I can readily use the program. 20 minutes with your instructions replaced 5 hours and lots of likely frustration in trying to discover the correct methods to use Blender.

Thank you,


Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Glen
