Thank You Community!
Good news everyone!
From the beginning it is an essential part of our mission to support Blender as a great Open Source software. Therefore, whenever you buy Full Plan, you don’t only support us, the founders of BlenderKit, but mostly you support the amazing BlenderKit creators and Open source. We collect 15% of the redistributions that our system makes internally in an internal Open Source fund.
In October 2020, we stepped up our membership in Blender Development Fund from 'Diamond Membership' to ‘Corporate Bronze’. This made us especially happy and you are the ones we need to thank.
Is our internal Open source fund balance.
From it was sent to the Blender Development Fund as subscription.
As you can see, the amount of the internally amassed open-source money is higher than the amount of the money sent to the Blender Foundation. That’s because the foundation website allows only definitive amounts to be sent each month.
And what's next?
When BlenderKit revenue continues to grow and the level of our internal Open-source fund reaches several thousand Euro per month, we would love to also supply grants directly to developers. Another dream we have is to support additional Open Source projects. These are just two of our long-term goals.
Thanks for your support!

With every new release of Blender we also try to improve BlenderKit. Here's what we done for you this time.
BlenderKit is now two years old. It’s a real thrill and you are all invited to celebrate with us. meow!
Check our new video tutorial on how to activate and use BlenderKit in Blender 2.9
Simple card and recurring payments are coming to BlenderKit.
We created the first of the BlenderKit artists interviews with Julio Sillet, who has uploaded many great materials to our website.
All the models, brushes, add-ons and materials for you to browse online. And if you find what you were looking for? Get it.
We are happy to announce that BlenderKit database now offers over 1000 assets. These were uploaded by over 60 active creators.
BlenderKit is now just one click away, as a 'default' material library inside Blender 2.8
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 just recently released a set of 9 texture-based PBR cycles materials.
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.
