I've recently started learning blender. I'm a metal artist and think I can learn blender enough so I can create my sculpture ideas, render them and submit them to sculpture jobs. Hoping I can shave off some time by importing 3d files that I can then modify and shape to fulfill my design ideas. What 3d file should I be looking for if it's possible to import?
Blender offers a wide range of popular file formats (e.g. OBJ, FBX, 3DS, PLY, STL, etc.) that can be used to import and export. Please note that many of the import/export features are enabled by the use of addons. See the import/export addons section of the manual for details.
