Portrait of Bart Veldhuizen

Bart Veldhuizen

Community Lead — Sketchfab, Epic Games

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

I have worked in Community Management in the 3D space since 2000 with Blender, Shapeways, 3D Hubs, Autodesk and Sketchfab. My main focus has always been building inclusive and positive art communities with a low barrier to entry.
