Thanks for the info! I installed Ubuntu-mate yesterday and now I issued command

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install blender

The package contained 2.72 version... but it works very well!!!

How usable is Blender on RPI3?

Raspbian jessie:

It indeed runs surprisingly well (surprising is even that it runs). However, I would not say that it is usable.

Editing even the default scene (a cube) is painfully slow (2 seconds to switch between modes). Solid shading (in the editing viewport) does not work at all. Wireframe shading works fine (but still - too slow to be usable). Cycle realtime-rendered shading produces some result and does so in reasonable time. Again this does not mean 'realtime' time - forget using it for editting.

Backup your SD card and try the experimental 3D driver.

Works very well with the 3d driver as long as the poly count is low enough. Forget sculpting complex organic structures, but it works well for modelling parts for 3d printing, for example.
