Matilde House using BIM and FreeCAD

Even with tools such as BlenderBIM that allow us to organize an entire project using BIM standards and export that as an IFC file, we could benefit a lot from a workflow that also includes FreeCAD. Since it has a native BIM workbench and can do many things that Blender still can’t, like easily generate […]

IFC.js updates: Selections and filters

How do you organize your modeling projects for architecture? A way of doing that in Blender is using collections to segment and assign meaning to 3D objects. With a complex design, it is critical to have such a level of organization. If you want to go further with that type of optimization, you should look […]

BlenderBIM updates and new features: Version v0.0.201207

A significant amount of people think about Blender as a 3D modeler and platform to render realistic images to visualize your designs. It can help a lot in this regard, but that is only part of its role in architecture. With Add-pons like BlenderBIM, you can expand Blender and include authoring and document BIM data. […]

Heck Residence: Full architectural project download (#Updates 2)

A few days ago, we shared a project from the OpeningDesign studio with an entire architectural project that you can download. They adopt the same open-source philosophy to their designs and make all the files available for anyone to download. At the time, you could grab several files from the Heck Residence, which includes technical […]

Locker room project in FreeCAD (Free architectural design)

A great way of learning how to create architectural designs is to open and inspect existing projects to see how an architect expresses their ideas. If you have access to the technical documentation produced for that design, it can give you unique insights. A couple of weeks ago, we shared an initiative from a studio […]

Section planes in IFC.js

An exciting project that we keep a close eye on here in Blender 3D Architect is the incredible IFC.js that enable us to upload and show architectural designs as IFC files on the web. It converts 3D data to JavaScript and gives you interactive control over the model. The developer of this project (Antonio González […]

Blender Homemaker-Topologise updates

A couple of months ago, we shared an impressive project here in Blender 3D Architect from a developer called Bruno Postle, who worked in a framework to quickly create buildings in Blender.. The tool works with simple primitive shapes. From those models, it can create all the necessary structures. In November, the tool was in […]

IFC.js adds OBJ export support to send projects to Blender

One of the dreams of many professionals working in the architectural visualization business is the possibility of having a full web-based workflow. Unlike many professionals that can easily have all their tools in the cloud, we still need powerful workstations to create 3D models and render. Some projects are trying to send tools and resources […]
