Happy holidays from BlenderKit
We wish you great winter (or summer) holidays, merry Christmas (or Hanukkah) and a happy New Year (or simply a happy January 1st)!
We are so proud of our community and the amazing BlenderKit artists from all around the world. To thank you, we have a few presents just for you.
Presents from BlenderKit:
As in every year, we were looking for the best presents we could give you. We realized that the best we could do is to code like crazy in order to improve the add-on and our server. So hopefully in Blender 2.92, there will be some really nice features waiting for you to unwrap.
In the upcoming weeks, we will release a few articles about the new features. However, if you dislike waiting for presents, you can go ahead and grab fresh Blender builds from builder.blender.org. You are then welcome to test the new features in our add-on. We recommend starting with Resolutions, which will make BlenderKit much faster for all of you.
Presents from our creators:
Our creators upload wonderful new assets everyday. Since so many assets are free to use, consider them as presents from our awesome artists. We picked up a few that you absolutely must see. Of course, more to be found in the gallery.

We are glad to introduce the Texture Resolutions feature in Blender 2.92. If you have a small GPU memory or want to create much larger scenes, this is the feature you’ve been waiting for.
We created the first of the BlenderKit artists interviews with Julio Sillet, who has uploaded many great materials to our website.
Literally every area you step in Blender requires you to learn a lot of new tools and information, and that's why we implemented several 'shortcuts' for convenience and speed.
Stones, rocks, pieces of wood can be sometimes photoscanned. But plants are still a domain of hard-core modeling. This really takes time, skill and precision, and a lot of observation what "natural" really means.
We are trying to help you, blenderheads, to save your time while achieving best results possible. Wallpaper textures can really boost interior renders, but do you already have those on your hard drive?
As a late Christmas gift, we are releasing our BlenderKit mascot kitten for free. Now, you can make any scene insta-cute! The kitten is poseable and can be animated (by now 2.79 only, because of a hair-import bug in 2.8 beta).
BlenderKit introduces add-on for Blender 2.8. While there are still many changes in Blender happening, which may cause the add-on will work today and not tomorrow, the add-on should be mostly working fine, and we try to keep the new version updated with the latest Blender builds.
We are happy to announce the release of something we've been working on for a long time.
BlenderKit is a new online platform made for Blender users, creators, and developers. We hope to bring a new momentum into the open source world by introducing several innovations we've been working on.
