How to download Blender for free
Come on, the first step is to access the official Blender website: http://blender.org, then we must click on the button (print below) to go to Blender 2.81 download pageat the time of this publication.
Now just click on “Download Blender 2.81a”As the website should automatically recognize your operating system.
At the moment, just wait for the Blender download to finish.
However, if the site does not recognize your operating system, just click on the field indicated in the image below and select the correct option for your system.
There, now with the program downloaded, we can proceed to the installation.
Install Blender on Windows
First, we must run the installer we downloaded. It is very simple, just click, you will see the screen below, this screen, it is Windows confirming if you really want to run the installer, that in running and we will go to the next step.
This is a welcome screen only, there is nothing important in this step, let's click on “Next” and continue.
We are now seeing a usage agreement, Blender operates under the GPL license, which allows us to use the source code to incorporate in another application, but we are required to make the code available under the same license. We accept and click on Next
Anyway, in this step we choose the location of the installation, if the default location is good for you, click Next.
Then you want to change, feel free, click Browse and choose the desired path, confirm and click Next.
This screen, is just the final step of confirming the installation, you can click on install, wait for the process to finish and then open Blender to ensure that everything is working, if you see a screen like this. Rest assured, in the next publication we will explain every bit of this interface.
Install Blender on Ubuntu Linux
First of all, I want to leave here a link to the website DioLinux, as he did a tutorial how to install Blender on Linux, alias it has excellent content on the Linux platform, I highly recommend visiting!
Anyway, in this tutorial I will follow the standard installation for Ubuntu Snap Store to try to maintain a simplified form of installation.
O Blender is available on the Snap Store, so it makes our life a lot easier,
You can either go to the link, or open the Ubuntu Software on your computer via the icon:
The second step is to go to the search that is in the upper right corner of this screen that we opened, it is a magnifying glass, there you type "Blender" and press Enter.
There should be 3 results for you, just like in the image below.
The first result, should be the correct one, click on it.
Before installing, just confirm that its source is Snap Store, as in the image below.
If the “Source” field is Snap Store, you can easily click on install and wait for the process to finish!
However, if not, I recommend trying the other two results first, if you don't find it, leave a message here in the comments or don't come to our server Discord that we help you there too.
