BlenderBIM and IFC Clash detection for architecture (Tutorial)
From all the current projects under development in Blender that has a goal of improving architectural design, the BlenderBIM is by far one of the most promising Add-ons. It receives frequent updates and can turn Blender into a real option to develop architectural projects using modern BIM standards.
If you want to take a look at a feature of the Add-on, we found a tutorial created by artist Vicent Cadoret showing the Clash Detection tool.
You learn how to process clash detection between walls and ducts in this tutorial, which can help you identify potential problems in a project. For artists looking to learn more about the BlenderBIM Add-on, that is a great tutorial.
The Add-on received a recent update with lots of new features and fixes.
