Apartment renovation with Blender 2.8 and LuxCoreRender
The history of Blender and external render engines goes a long way. In the past, we didn't have Cycles or Eevee to make realistic renders using Blender. The options were YafaRay or LuxRender in the open-source field.
From those two renderers, we have LuxRender that today has the name of LuxCoreRender, which is version 2.0 of the renderer.
How good is LuxCoreRender for architecture? The best way to check if you can give LuxCoreRender a try is with an example.
An architect called camara shared an apartment renovation project, made with Blender 2.8 and LuxCoreRender.
You will find some impressive images in the link with several views from the apartment interior.
To render each image using LuxCoreRender, the artist needed 45 minutes with a resolution of 3800 x 2160 pixels.
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 3.0: The beginner's guide
- 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.
