Every time I make a new tutorial a new beta is released that changes it! The people behind Blender are doing a brilliant job creating fantastic software for free and it cannot be easy. In version 2.56, the ‘Report’ view of the Python console has moved to the ‘Info’ window. The ‘Scripting’ layout has not been changed to reflect this, you need to go to the bottom right window and change it from ‘Python Console’ to ‘Info’ and then the tutorial matches.
When you work in the 3D view, Blender converts your actions into API (application programming interface) commands. The Info window (Python console in report view in older versions) displays these commands and you can copy and paste them into a Python script.
This tutorial shows how to make a simple model of a monkey man. The commands used are – adding meshes, scaling, moving, rotating duplicating.
