Rilasciato Bforartists 1.0, il progetto che punta a rendere l'interfaccia di Blender più user friendly. 

Bforartists infatti è l'acronimo di Be For Artists, un promemoria per ricordare che è un programma pensato per gli artisti e non per gli sviluppatori. Bforartists è un fork del software open source 3d Blender e, similmente a Blender, è anch'esso open source e sotto licenza GPL v3. 

Come riportato sul repository GitHub, le principali differenze con Blender sono:

  • A brand new Keymap with Left Click select, which is reduced to just the necessary hotkeys.
  • Cleaned up User Interface. More than 400 not necessary double menu entries removed.
  • Extended User Interface. Close to 100 formerly hotkey only tools have a menu entry now.
  • Rearranged User Interface. Some things are better accessible now, some are not so much in the way anymore.
  • 700 new native icons.
  • Icon Buttons in the Tool Shelf to reduce the scrolling.
  • A configurable Toolbar with icon buttons.
  • Improved Layouts.
  • Better Tooltips.
  • Better readable standard theme.
  • Some neat new addons to improve usability, like the reset 3D View addon or the Important Hotkey addon.
  • And lots more small details like hidable 3D Cursor or Wireframe Colors. Or that you can now delete objects and selections without the delete menu quiz.
  • The Bforartists usage is centered around the graphical menu, not hotkeys. Bforartists relies at an intuitive and self explaining graphical UI in the first place. And then the hotkeys.
  • The target audience for Bforartists are hobbyists and indie developers. Blender tries to target professionals. But most of them don't care for various reasons.
  • A better manual. The Blender manual is in big parts unsearchable, has an odd structure, and relies heavily at the Blender keymap to name just a few flaws, making it unusable for users. That's why we rewrite it, piece by piece.
  • Official learning videos. No need to spend days with searching for the one tutorial that is understandable, for the actual version and is not a spelling lesson. This is also an ongoing project.
  • Bforartists is not bound to the Blender bubble. It has its own independant eco system.
