Hey, I am in the same boat, I am learning python in school and thought I may as well make it useful. Anyone know where to start?

There are a number of tutorials at blendercookie covering scripting and making addons

I don’t know python, but I’ve been a hobiest programmer for many years.

What I do when looking to learn a language is reference the help files that come with whatever I am learning - check out python’s home page.

In addition, look at existing scripts; without even downloading any, there will be some already installed with blender - simply copy (to be safe) 'em somewhere else.

And there are tutorials at,

My understanding btw, is it’s better to learn v3 as that is what blender uses.

Damn, I’m now tempted as a huge CG Cookie fan to do some scripting. :smiley:
