Floor board generator updated to Blender 2.8

For artists working with Blender to create architectural visualization using Add-ons for modeling is essential for both speed and efficiency. You will be able to quickly create architectural elements like walls, windows, and roofs. The process of making those elements “manually” would require several hours of work that you save using an Add-on. When Blender […]

JARCH Vis updated for Blender 2.8

Once you start working with architectural modeling, you will realize how important it is to get some Add-ons in Blender to speed up the creation of some elements. For instance, you will spend a lot of time making stairs, windows or doors without an Add-on. There are some excellent choices regarding scripts to help to […]

Controlling units with the MeasureIt Add-on: Metric and Imperial

Controlling units with the MeasureIt Add-on: Metric and Imperial

In the past couple weeks, we received a lot of messages from our students in our pieces of training, related to both modeling and architectural documentation about how to correctly set units with an Add-on. The problem is that even if you set Blender to use units in either the metric or imperial system, you […]

Bezier curve CAD Add-on for modeling

When you have to create a 3d model for architectural in Blender, you will have to apply and use tools related to polygon modeling. Working with polygons have both advantages and downsides. On one side it offers an easy and straightforward way to make 3d geometry. But, depending on the way you design your project […]

List of Add-ons for architectural visualization with Blender

The Blender core tools offer a wide range of options to create 3d models for architecture and render them in Cycles. But, if you want to go further or speed up your modeling, an Add-on might give you the tools you need to decrease production time. Add-ons in Blender works like a plugin, where you […]

Blender Grass Architecture

Grass for architecture in Blender

There are several ways to create grass in Blender for architectural visualization, from using simple textures to complex Add-ons. Using an Add-on will bring you a lot of advantages over textures like being a lot more realistic. That is hard to beat. Have you ever tried one of those Add-ons? In a past article, we […]

Precision modeling for architecture

Exact edit: Free Add-on for precision modeling

A critical aspect of architectural modeling is the control over dimensions or precision modeling. You must have a good amount of tools that allow you to set exact sizes to get an accurate 3d model. If you work with a model that doesn’t have, at least correct proportions, your renders will become useless. In Blender, […]

Free Python script to generate terrains

In landscaping architecture, you will often find two main challenges which are getting vegetation and creating a terrain. For vegetation, you can use one of the several libraries we share with our readers, but for terrain generation, you will have to choose among several alternatives. The vegetation layout will probably be a direct outcome of […]
