When we work with our own projects and have full control over the workflow, it’s quite easy to choose the tools and softwares used along the process. But, what if you get […]

Aligning 3d objects with Python for architectural modeling

The use of scripts to create routines and do repetitive tasks in 3d modeling is a common practice among more experienced artists, and for architectural modeling it’s no different. In Blender 3D we use Python to create scripts that can help us in the modeling process. From time to time, I show a few scripts […]
