Blender 2.62 Addons, Part 1

Addons are just what the name implies...programs that extend, or add to, the functionality of Blender. They are not part of the core Blender program. Instead, you can turn them on or off (enable or disable) by clicking on a check box in the User Preferences screen. There are many addons, which can add more capabilities to your Blender environment. To see the addons, from the default Blender screen, I will change the 3D View window type to User Preferences. A tabbed menu displays, with different types of preferences grouped into categories such as Interface, Input, Addons, and so on. Interface displays by default. To see the Addons available, click on the Addons tab.
