You have Blender installed on a Pi???

I think it runs slowly sometimes on my 3.4Ghz i7 laptop with 32GB RAM... and go onto my main system to work on it instead.

Try adding Avastar as well... you'll melt the poor thing.

How are you going to connect 2 or more Single Board Computers together to be seen by Blender as one Computer ??

What OS are you running it on?
Which version of Blender?
Raspbian is currently using old mesa OpenGL.

I got Blender for Artists running reasonable on Gentoo64.
viewtopic.php?f=54&t=216279
Had to use an older version without all the features.

It is not fast and I have hardly used it.
Been waiting for kernel 4.19 and mesa3D 19 to come though the pipe line.
They have some improvements and bug fixes that should make it more pleasant to use.

A Raspberry Pi render farm?

Would be cool to join a bunch and make a mini Weta Workshop render farm.
Pi made movies?
DCC- Distributed Computing Cluster? I think that should work on Pi's.
Blender can use Python plugins and Python can do Distributed Computing?

Someone might have done it?
If not, someone has to be first ;)
