Software platform

EVOs are developed using «Blender», based on the following main reasoning:

  • Blender is a full-featured 3D modeling, animation and rendering software whose functionality can be extended by Add-Ons and Python scripts.
  • Blender is open source software under the GNU licence and is supported by a very large and active, worldwide community.
  • Blender is being actively developed, following a transparent schedule so that it is possible to plan ahead.
  • Blender versions are available for all major operating systems and for both 32 and 64 bit systems.
  • Blender is increasingly being adopted by the academic community.
