Blender with CAD like features using Add-ons

One of the biggest requests I heard from architectural visualization on Blender is that would love to get more precision modeling tools. We can already work really well on most situations in Blender, but there is always room to improvements. If you search carefully specially for Add-ons you will find some really nice Add-ons that […]

How to use the new Inset Polygon in Blender 2.58

New add-on in development: Inset tool for Blender

The main modeling technique used by Blender is polygon modeling, and some tools are quite important to quickly achieve complex topology. For instance, one option that I miss sometimes in Blender is the Inset tool, like the one we find in 3ds max. But, a new add-on still in development may give Blender his own […]

Motion trail: Changing the timing of animation at the 3D View

If your project deals with the production of animation for architecture, at some point you will have to make adjustments to the timing and overall placement of keyframes. The common place to do that is at the dope sheet of in the Graph Editor. But, with a new add-on developed by Bart Crouch, we will […]
