Extruding meshes with Bmesh step-by-step

In pre­vi­ous tuto­ri­als we looked into the basics of how to cre­ate mesh data to make new objects. Let’s shift gears and start abus­ing pre-exist­ing mesh­es instead, today we will look at extrusions. 

A look at security in Blender

A few moons ago secu­ri­ty researchers at Cisco made waves in the Blender com­mu­ni­ty after dis­clos­ing a num­ber of vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties that could allow an attack­er to run arbi­trary code. All the of them were fixed by 2.79a but it’s still pos­si­ble to make Blender run arbi­trary code.

Meshes with Python & Blender: Icospheres

In the third part of the series we get into mak­ing icosa­he­dra, sub­di­vid­ing and refin­ing them to spheres. To top it off, we’ll also look at two ways of set­ting a mesh’s shad­ing to smooth.
