BlenderBIM bounty to improve construction drawing generation (updates #2)
By the end of 2020, we saw a great initiative from artists and professionals using Blender for architecture, which were looking to improve the way Blender generates construction drawings. That is one of the most complex parts of any attempt to produce an entire design with the software. You can create many aspects of the process in Blender, but when it is time to make the technical drawings, we need some tricks and workarounds to make it work.
The initiative consists of a code bounty for anyone to embrace and solve the problem, which provides the winner all the funds from the bounty. At the moment, the reward of around 2,700.00 USD.
With recent developments in BlenderBIM and synergy with FreeCAD for architectural development, many people are trying to get the Blender Foundation to jump into the project. Having the possibility of making technical drawings from Blender would be a game-changer in many ways! You would not need any other tool to develop the entire design in architecture!
Using Blender for architecture
Do you want to use Blender for architecture or render your projects using Cycles or Eevee? We have three books available that could help you!
They cover the use of Blender for producing architectural content and also all information you need to render projects in real-time:
- Blender 2.9 for architecture: Modeling and rendering with Eevee and Cycles
- Blender 2.8 parametric modeling: Drivers, Custom Properties, and Shape Keys for 3D modeling
- Blender 2.9: The beginner's guide
- Blender 2.8 for technical drawing
- Blender Eevee: The guide to real-time rendering with Blender 2.8
You can get them in both digital and paperback formats. By ordering those books, you will not only improve your skills with Blender for architecture but also support Blender 3D Architect.
