There are several ways to make your Blender experience better. Firstly, you can make the 3d viewport look nicer. Start by going into the user preferences. Go to the system tab, and add a multisample to the window draw method. This will make your 3d viewport have more detail.

Another way to enhance your experience is by adding a theme to the user interface. There is a specific tab in the user preferences menu for themes. There are preset themes that you can try out, or you can download a new one. You can even make your own theme and save it.

The next thing that you can do is add some add-ons. The add-ons tab contains many features that you can use to make your life easier. If you install a test build of Blender, you can try out test add-ons by checking off the testing checkbox. These add-ons can be used for anything from stair-building, to making medieval walls.

A simple trick that makes everything easier for me is one tiny checkbox in the interface tab. The “rotate around selection” check box activates a feature that rotates you viewport based on what you are selecting. This helps when you are modeling and looking at multiple views.

Hope these tips help out.

Happy Blending,
