This is the currently planned roadmap for the next weeks and months. The farer away means of course the fewer detail. We are currently in the initial funding stage. Find volunteers, start to organize, create a first working release version ...

Initial release:

We need of course first an initial release, with own icons and own name. We don't want to break copyrights. So that's the first goal, to port the whole project from Blender to Bforartists. I am already working at this problem.

Hunt for more helping hands:

Why this Blender fork?

The short answer is: because it is more than time that somebody fixes the cruel Blender UI! The UI dilemma already has lasted for too long. And i simply don't see the currently responsible staff being able to do that. Even after their recent announcement to have a break for one year and finally tackle the UI issue. It's still the same people responsible with still the same odd ideas about UI / UX design. The same people who didn't manage to create a good UI in the past 13 years. So chances are very small that they manage it this time.

Bforartists is starting

Hello friends,

This is it, we are live.

So what is Bforartists? In short: Bforartists is a project to create a Blender fork with a much better UI and usability. And with the goal to fix all those crazy UI / UX design issues from the past. Like the almighty RMB select issue, which has stopped generations of wanabee Blender users right in the first five seconds.
