    Yes. About two years ago they added matcap rendering with occlusion for fast rendering in opengl. The render took about 2 seconds to do.

    In mid-summer they should be releasing version 2.8 of the software. It is a major version with several massive updates with one being custom user interfaces. One of the custom interfaces will be a streamlined version focused on modeling only. For anyone wanting to use blender for pattern building that is the time to pick it up if you haven't already. For the old users it will be another learning curve because there will be a lot of changes. The one most folks are excited about is eevee. A new real-time render engine. Not photo-realistic but really close.

    blender comes with 27 base matcap materials with the capability of creating custom ones (though it can get fairly complicated).
