Apartment interior with Cycles: Architectural glass and carpet download
The project today is an apartment interior rendered by artist Filipe Lima Botelho, which was a design from RPeixoto Architecture. In a thread at the Blender Artists forums, you will find several renders from the project, showing some impressive interior designs. A total of 15 images are available from this particular project.
As a bonus to the project itself, you also have the opportunity to view settings for the render and also download an asset. The artist was kind enough to provide a screenshot with all Nodes used for the external windows.
Do you have a Node setup for architectural glass? If you still don’t have any architectural glass shader in your library, it will be a great help. Create a new material in Blender and setup all Nodes according to the screenshot.
Besides getting an idea about architectural glass Nodes, you can also download a free asset. The artist made available a carpet model used in a room.
That is incredibly useful for interior projects in residential spaces. You can download the file as a native Blender model. Use the File → Append option in Blender to incorporate that to any project you want.
