The BlenderDiplom Blog features test, doodles, previews for tutorials and various other things related to Blender.

This is a short demo video of things to come for Blender. If everything works out all right, volume rendering will be included in Blender 2.70 (hey, we don't even have version 2.69 yet).

This is a brand new test of the current implementation of the SPH fluid particles in Blender 2.68a. It uses the double-density solver and 500.000 particles. Blendfile availabe for download and study.

Blender 2.67 has just been released and there is already awesome new things added to the development version of Blender 2.68. Like this great new feature by MiikaH - smooth emitters for high resolution smoke and fire simulations!
Recently I created a demo video to show off a new feature in Blender 2.65 - Collision objects now cause vorticity when passing through smoke!

This is just some old doodle I found on my harddrive, it dates back to October 2011.

Recently a thread on Blenderartists popped up with the idea of a 'comment node' where one can put text to describe what a node (or node group) is doing exactly. I will show a few current solutions how to add comments to your Blender nodes and how they could be improved.

I tried to check whether Blender can be used as a tool to visualize medical CT-Data in Blender. Obviously yes!
