Free tutorials about 3d modeling for architectural visualization

The modeling process for architectural visualization is very different from projects dealing with organic shapes. With organic shapes we can focus in the approximated proportion of the model and organize the topology of the model to receive good deformations, when the model is animated. For models used in architectural visualization projects the focus is on […]

Creating realistic grass with Blender 3D and YafaRay for architecture

The most experienced users may remember that a few years ago, when we only had YafRay to work with advanced Global Illumination in Blender 3D, the simulation of grass for external views in architectural visualization projects require a lot of workarounds to be created. The old YafRay didn`t support the Blender particles at that time. […]

Table with mesh organization tips for 3D polygon modeling

What is required to learn and develop even more your modeling skills? One of the things that I always say in my modeling classes is that we have to balance the technical side of 3d modeling with the artistic side. Even with the advice to balance the focus of the modeling, my students often leave […]

Getting started with YafaRay and Blender 3D for interior design

I still believe that we may use both YafaRay and LuxRender in our architectural visualization projects, because LuxRender can`t beat YafaRay in one tiny detail: render speed. The quality and realism of the images created with LuxRender are amazing, but they demand long render times to become clear enough to be used in commercial projects. […]
