Making atoms visible: Blender3D workshop with Brady Johnston

Recently, we had a two-day Blender3D workshop led by Brady Johnston, biochemist and Blender-in-Science expert. The small workshop was organised by Dr Sarah Piper primarily for the members of the Outreach and Engagement Committee of CCeMMP with attendees from all four nodes.

Blender3D is a free and open-source 3D computer graphics software used for creating 3D animation movies and video games, and lately has become a suitable tool to create engaging scientific renders. In the workshop, Brady taught the group how to use the software interface as well as presenting his Molecular Nodes add-on, which makes it easy to load structural data, such as PDB files, into Blender3D.

The workshop results were stunning, take a look.

Thanks so much to Brady for coming all the way from Perth to teach us how to use Blender3D, and thanks to all participants for sharing such amazing outputs.
