New to Blender and excited.

Just wanted to pop in and say hello to everyone. Just downloaded blender and reading the docs. I did have a question. I don’t have any experience with 3d graphics. While some of the names for various features are intuitive, most are not. I was wondering, is there a place that has a 3d graphics primer that will explain not how to do them but what they are? Or a book would be good. As in programming I found the most difficult part to learn was that something exsisted. If I dont know it is an option I’ll never know to ask about it. Thanks for any replies. Back to reading.

Well here ya go :smiley:
