Has anyone here used Blender, the 3d modelling program? I just downloaded it recently

I've used it on and off for the last 2 years now, I think it's a excellent modeling tool and I really dont see whats missing in the package, Love it!
It works great with my Wacom as well, especially Intuos3 when the fast command buttons are on the tablet as real buttons (the Intuos2 had them on the active tablet area wich didnt work so good because Blender senses where the mouse pointer is, you cant make a face with such fast buttons for example).
Blender has a pretty high learning curve, but once you've managed to get over it it's a wounderful tool to use!

Yeah blender is pretty unorthodox and isn't to everybody's liking (definately not to mine anyway) but once you get your head around the techniques it's pretty powerful. You can't argue with free software so you have no excuse not to download it and have a good week or so of playing with it.

I myself am a Max + Brazil user for life so not even the price tag could get me to stray from the church of MAX.

Kl, I'm not used to modelling etc, but I thought I'd give it a go, and from what I saw it seemed to be the best to start on. AND it was free lol.
