My son, 14, is in first year high school and he’s taking a robotics course. The teacher introduced him to “SketchUp” and he’s loving the program. As I was doing a search for it, to download the program so he can learn to use it, I came across Blender. We sat for several minutes looking at some of the work created by it and he seems to be very interested, so…
I don’t think I currently have the system requirements to install and properly run Blender but I wanted to know if coding is a requirement to using the software since neither of us knows how to code. Also, I would appreciate a word of advice as to what system to purchase, should I get one from Dell or have one built to custom and if so, what would it need to properly run the software (now and till he’s done with school, another 3 years).
We have a Dell Inspiron 6400 running win home xp, with sp3 and a 1.99 gb ram; and I have no idea what graphics card it has.
Any help would be appreciated.
