what version of blender do I use with 3.8.1

Can someone tell me what version of Blender I should be using to create a model for use in VS 2022, Monogame 3.8.1.

You can use newest one, it doesn’t matter, it can export into formats that will be compatible with pipeline.

Ok thanks. Which export is best for a beginner?

FBX for more complex setups, obj is enough for simple basic models
