Grant Abbitt, a passionate content creator and educator, is this week at the NVIDIA Studio To show how his GeForce RTX 4090GPU his 3D scene Dragon propelled, made to create new Blender-users to help them easily understand the steps in the creative process of using the software.
Abbitt has more than 30 years of industry experience and understands the importance of usable, simple instructions to enable future 3D modelers to progress gradually. His own early days learning 3D workflows presented unique challenges – such as software programs that cost as much as the hardware, or super-fast Internet, which required Abbitt to learn 3D via instructional VHS tapes. #TBT!
For his Dragon creation, he used Pinterest and ArtStation for creative inspiration and reference material, while the rest of the project was completed in Blender – the world’s most popular 3D creation suite – which free and open source is.

Rendering final files in popular 3D creative apps – such as Blender, Autodesk Maya with Autodesk Arnold, OTOY’s OctaneRender and Maxon’s Redshift – is 70-200% faster with an RTX 4090 GPU, compared to previous-generation cards. This results in invaluable time savings for a freelancer on a deadline or a student working on a group project.
