Tool: Semi-Auto-Update Blender 2.8x

I’ve written a tool to quickly and semi-automatically download the latest nightly Blender 2.8x build.

Hi all,

I’ve written a cool little PowerShell script (Windows only, obvs.) that automatically updates blender 2.8x builds from the nightly-builds server.

Right-click the file and select Run with Power Shell and follow any prompts. The script automatically scrapes the builds site for the latest windows 64-bit build, downloads it to your PC, unzips and copies it to the correct location. The script will pause while any Blender instances are open.

There are options in the script to change the locations of files, etc. directly after the license.

The script requires 7-zip to be installed and is best installed into a folder like C:\Apps.
