Best Add-ons for architecture in Blender – Part I

As part of your daily work with Blender to produce architectural visualization content, you might find tasks and projects facing either a roadblock or a speed bump consuming a lot of time to finish. Depending on the task, you can find in the Blender Add-ons some incredible tools to save time and solve a lot of those problems.

What are Add-ons? They are scripts that expand or introduce new tools to Blender. Some of them are part of the default Blender installation, and others require you an external download. We can also divide Add-ons between free tools and premium options, requiring a purchase for download.

Regardless of nature, you will find an incredible amount of tools in Add-ons. Since we feature a significant amount of those tools in the past weeks, we decided to make a list with some of the best Add-ons for architecture:

All options in the list are Add-ons that are either bundled with Blender or a free download. The articles show an example of a use for each Add-on and how they can help with architectural visualization.

In the future, we will post additions Add-on reviews and tips for architectural visualization. Since all Add-ons in the list are free, I strongly recommend you to analyze them and see if you can benefit from installing and enabling those tools. They might contribute to your workflow.
