Blender is an open source 3D animation software package, the software allows the user to not only create a model, but to texture it, and even animate it creating interactive 3D applications. These models can be exported to go into gaming engines such as Unity, or they can be exported as STL files for 3D printing.

It can be used for modelling, UV unwrapping, texturing, rigging, skinning, animating, rendering, particle and other simulations, non-linear editing, compositing, and creating interactive 3D applications.
