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 will give Blender CAD like features. Just take a quick look on a set of Add-ons created by an artist/developer called zmj100 that can add features like Fillet and Inset Outset (Offset copy?).
You can check out this thread at the Blenderartists forums to take all updates on the development of all Add-ons. By visiting this thread you will find these Add-ons:
- Vertex Align
- Object Align
- Arbitrary Align
- Fillet Multiple
- Inset edge chain loop
- Arc Tool
How can I download all those Add-ons? Another artist called tungee just put together almost all Add-ons for download, which you can find in this link. Below there is an example of how to use the Fillet Add-on.
And one of my favorites, the Inset Outline. Doesn`t it looks like an Offset from CAD tools?
