In this Blender guide I will present you how to speed up your blender renders using a nonpaid GPU on Google Colab. Google Colab is an online Jupyter notebook service for running python code and google provides players with nonpaid GPUs and TPUs which can be used for rendering Blender files very quickly.
In this guide I will present you in a several, very simple steps how to write the code that you will need in order to render your blender files on the cloud. Once the code is written, it is a easy process of just uploading your blend file to Google Drive and running the script.
In the video, I perform a easy speed comparison and present that Google Colab decreased my render times by about 9 times!

01:53 Setup Blender File
03:28 Run Google Colab
04:20 Explain how the Code Works
10:45 Run the Code
12:47 Google Colab Render Time
13:50 Laptop GPU Render Time
I’ve uploaded the code to my GitHub acc here:

Hope you search it needed!
Can we render fluid and another types of simulations with this?
i have Dnoise nodes set for the render, is it going to respect this nodes in the final output photos on google colab?
why after finish rendering the file picture back to the default cube, not to the previous save?
Great guide many thanks for sharing this, no GPU on my laptop, the comparison was 1:30 versus 30 mins!
Is there any time limit except for restarting each ~8h? I heard that you can use full 5h per week? Somewhere, someone wrote that you can obtain banned for using Google Colab. Is it real? Are there any another limitations?
can i use evee
How we can contain back effects if we have a fluid simulation, as there is no specific keyword for bake file path ?
how to change filename?
woah this is so cool!! thank you for the video!!
I subscribed even though I have not started using Blender yet. One thing that has been keeping me from learning it is the fact that it takes so long to render. Actually this video seems to give me hope. I wish to do more thank output still photos. I'd be glad if you should do a video on how to render animations. Thanks very much. Actually I can Blend in peace.
