Blender is an app that is available for those who are interested in creating 3D content. This app is praised by any for having an enormous amount of variety. It's also great that there are so many special features to choose from. There are a lot of different icons and panels to learn how to use, but there are also helpful tooltips available.

Users like the fact that they can customize things. Customization features include the ability to take away and add on sections however one likes. These sections can also be resized as part of the customization features.

The functions of the Blender app are diverse. They can be used to handle tasks such as modeling, rigging, creating games, and more. So many features are included that it's not possible to list them all. Some of the great features that really go above and beyond are a text editor that is built into the software and editing and playback capabilities for audio.

One drawback for some users is that there aren't any configuration options. It's best that the user is an expert with a lot of experience in order to really benefit from this app. That being said, anyone who is really into 3D creation should definitely try this app out and familiarize themselves with its functioning.

Pros

  • There are numerous features to check out- It's truly impressive how many different features there are crammed into this app. There are many different capabilities that users can take advantage of.
  • The interface doesn't overlap- Although the interface is complex and complicated for some to use, it does have the advantage of not overlapping. This makes the interface highly efficient and relatively straightforward to work with.
  • Online assistance is available- While it's true that Blender is complex and sometimes a little complicated for some to learn to use at first, the big advantage is that there is online assistance that one can access when necessary. If you run into trouble, there will be some help available that you can take advantage of.

Cons

  • You probably should be advanced to really benefit- This is a great app, but it's not necessarily for beginners. It helps if you already have a great deal of experience when it comes to 3D creation.
  • The variety can seem like a bit too much- You might find the app overwhelming. This is especially true in the early days when you're first learning how this app works.
