Selecting

  • a: all
  • b: box selection / middle: deselect
  • c: circle select /middle: deselect
  • control+rightclick, after selection: connect the two selected elements and select the path
  • alt+rightclick: select edge loop
    shift+alt+rightclick: continue selected loop, if you want

Tricks

  • ctrl+leftClick: extrude follow the mouse direction
  • shift+r: repeat last action. (for example: grab)
  • m: move to layer
  • alt+s: scale reset and scale. Alt+r: rotate reset and rotate…
  • shift: at scaling, it gives a finer/slower scaling effect
  • z: switch wireframe, and back
  • shift+z: switch to render mode, and back
  • shift + c:  3d cursor to the center
  • shift+space: hide/show property panel
  • ctrl+l: Obj mode, select more object, the last one with material+node settings: ctrl+l, link same material
  • Render panel/Sampling/Samples: set 100, no 1o
  • ctrl+j: join objects
  • ctrl+alt+q: quad view
  • w: special menu, subdivide: split an edge with a new vertice
  • alt+m: merge, vertices
  • select camera. G = grab tool, G+mid mouse button = front back. shift+F free camera. R = rotate. That enough. Try ctrl + alt + num0 for quick placing the camera to 3d view.
  • Set object to the center:
    Shift+S > Cursor to center (if it isn’t already) then in Object mode > menu Object > Transform > Origin to 3D cursor. As for rotation: CTRL+A > Rotationsnap the origin to the cursor: ctrl+shift+alt+c
  • add ons/3d print toolbox: it can fixes normal problems, duplicated vertices and other things.
  • control+tab, in edit mode:  mesh select tool, vertex/edge/face,
  • select an edge – control+leftClick create a new edge.
  • node editor:  shift + left mouse click create a new point on white connection lines
  • gx1 – move on x axis with one unit
  • in vertex paint mode Shift+K apply the color for all body
  • c – circle select
  • Edit mode, alt+m: merge two vertices
  • Ctrl+r: loop
  • Ctrl+J: join meshes to one mesh, Ctrl+e: menu/bridge edge loop: join two separated loops

 

  • Alt+F10 full screen
    • T: turn on Tool shelv
    • N: property palette
    • numpad 5: ortographic mode, no torsion. In perspective mode I can’t zoom into the object
    • matcap: clay like display, better details
    • modifier tool: add on, shipped with blender
  • Alt+F9: no window frame
  • shift+space: maximize 3d viewport
  • user preferences/rotate around selection
  • pie menu: user preferences/addons
  • short note on screen: press down D and draw with left mouse button
  • b in edit mode: box select

Training

  • create holes – del the cube and create a plane, subdivide it.
    • vertice delete:
      • delete a vertice
      • select edges around the hole
      • Alt+shift+S   to sphere:  Mesh/transform/To sphere
    • mesh/vertices/bevel:
      • select a vertice
      • control+shift+B and LMB click pull
      • subdivide it and delete the middle vertex
      • Alt+shift+S: to sphere
    • Create a plane, subdivide it to 10 parts,
      • delete faces in a box from the middle with 4 vertices per side
      • insert a circe,
      • select edge loops of the circle and the inner box edges
      • connect them with: Mesh/edges/Bridge Edge loops
    • Boolean: use a cube
      • insert a cylinder, and put some part of it into the cube
      • select cube
      • Modifier/add modifier/boolean/difference, and select the cylinder – it will cut off the cylinder from the box
  • wooden cup
    • set cycles render
    • new file, delete the cube: x
    • add Mesh/UV Sphere
    • go to Edit mode, Wireframe
      • View/Front, View/Ortho
