Blender is an integrated suite of tools enabling the creation of a broad range of 3D content with the singular benefits of cross-platform operability and a small file size, making it a transportable application.

Aimed at media professionals and artists, Blender can be used to create 3D visualisations, stills as well as broadcast and cinema quality video, while the incorporation of a real-time 3D engine allows for the creation of 3D interactive content for stand-alone playback.

Blender used to be developed commercially, by the company 'Not a Number' (NaN), however it is now is continued as freeware/opensource and with the source code available under the GNU GPL license.

Note that the Linux version of Blender can be obtained from the Blender download page.
