Architectural 3d print with Blender

As an architect working with projects on a daily basis we sometimes must work with both virtual and physical models of buildings. In Blender 3d architect I’m always showing examples of how Blender can help us to create virtual images and models for our projects. But, what if I told you that Blender can also help us to build physical models of our projects? Yes, with the advent of 3d printers we can also build 3d models with Blender and print them! And architectural 3d print can be made with Blender really easily.

Do you want to check out an example? Here is an experiment of 3d printing with Blender for architecture recorded by Matthieu Dupont.

Now, all we need to get our physical models made with Blender is a 3d printer. To try that right now, here is a link to the 3d print addon in Blender.
