Blender for architecture: Grease Pencil and Sverchok for walls (Demo)

As we usually mention here in Blender 3D Architect, using tools such as Blender in architecture often brings marketing and still image visualization as their primary and only potential contribution for a design. It can go much further than “simple” visualization with the current companion tools under development. When you mix those tools with existing […]

Blender for energy analysis and project efficiency

When we start to think about Blender as a tool to improve your architectural designs and workflow, we usually think about the benefits of having a 3D model for visualization and a later realistic render with either Eevee or Cycles. What if I told you that Blender could go much beyond simple visualization? It can […]

Cantilevered stair model for Blender: Free construction details (IFC)

A significant number of artists that work with architectural visualization doesn’t have a background with technical drawing or experience with architectural details. That is not a problem in the vast majority of cases, because you don’t need this type of experience to create architectural renders. However, it is always a plus to study and analyze […]

Interview with Andrew Peel about Fluid Designer

Open-Source software like Blender always invites users to get the source code to make changes and add new features, tools, or change the user interface. Those changes sometimes will merge with the main Blender releases or give birth to fork projects. We already made a list of some fork projects based in Blender, and among […]
