How to Download Previous Versions of Blender

Blender is an amazing, fully functional 3D package. What really makes it appealing is that fact that you can download any version on the many platforms it supports at anytime.

As mentioned on own website:

"You will always be able to download every version of Blender at any time. It’s yours to keep, forever!"


This is appealing because you can version lock your production to a specific version. You can come back to it years later (maybe you are working on a sequel,) and you can use the exact same version and features your project was built on. Still to this day, this is a major problem in studios using popular commercial software. They can't get older versions because of licensing or it is simply not available anymore. They can't use the new versions because the features they built their pipeline on is deprecated or works differently. In a lot of cases, there simply isn't time or budget to deal with this overhead of getting old assets to work in the new pipeline or recreate assets (and finding and staffing the talent to do so.)


Many people didn't know you could download previous versions of Blender and/or where to go to download it. To get the previous versions of Blender, go here.


Here is a screen grab if you want to navigate to it from yourself. NOTE: Blender updates their website all the time, so the screen grab might not look the same or the navigation may have changed by time you read this. Hopefully the direct link stays the same or the screen grab helps you figure out how to get to it.
