It’s no secret that Blender has a lot of shortcuts.
Some are easy to remember – like repeating the last action: Shift+R.
And others just make you say “Really??” – like changing the origin point: Ctrl + Shift + Alt + C
Some say that Blender’s shortcut heavy workflow stops new users from learning faster. Which I agree to a point, but I also understand why they’re used. Because when you know them you can work a lot faster than someone without them.
In 2010 I wrote the first keyboard shortcut guide in 2010, which was downloaded about 80,000 times. Blender’s changed a lot since then, and so it’s time for an upgrade!
So it’s been completely rewritten. I first compiled a list of shortcuts I thought were useful, then and got feedback from others via twitter. I curated everyone’s responses and rewrote the entire shortcut guide from scratch.
Instead of just dropping the download link here, I’m giving it as a gift to those on my email newsletter list. If you like the site, and find stuff like this useful, all I ask is that you subscribe to the newsletter.
So to get this, enter your email here…
Here’s one page from the guide so you can see what it looks like inside:
And stay tuned! In a few weeks I’ll be publishing a video of interesting blender shortcuts :)
