Screen space GI for Eevee

The use of Eevee for architectural visualization can bring numerous benefits to 3D artists, and among them, we have render speeds as one of the most important. Since we use real-time renders, it is easy to create projects requiring only a couple of seconds to process a render. However, these incredible speeds come with a […]

Marble living: EEVEE and Cycles in the same project

A significant benefit we have in Blender when working with architectural visualization is to use two renderers sharing lots of data. When you start to create a project to render in Cycles, it can quickly begin with Eevee for materials and later render it with Cycles for maximum quality. The use of Eevee for architectural […]

New DoF options for Eevee

When you have a project that needs maximum realism in a render, a great way of making it look better is with a couple of effects. A popular choice for rendering interiors is a Depth of Field effect, which focuses the render on a single object and applies a blur to the rest of your […]

Blender hidden Shadeless material for Eevee and Cycles

A material that doesn’t interact with light is useful in many ways when you are using Blender to create projects related to visualization. We use shadeless materials all the time when working with technical drawing and 2D design. We had an option in the old “Blender Internal Render” to process surfaces with a Shadeless material […]

25 free cutout images for architecture (Eevee settings)

An interior visualization project is an effective way of marketing any architectural project and showing potential buyers how their future location will look. In some cases, it is also necessary to add human scales to a design to help identify proportions and give a sense of spatial awareness. How to do that in Blender? The […]

Free procedural Sky background for Cycles and Eevee

A key feature of any scene for architecture produced in Blender is the background. You can use multiple resources to create a sky that helps in a rendering. From an HDR texture to a simple plain white color, you have multiple options. If you want to use a lightweight solution for your sky background that […]

Hotel room interior with Eevee (Profile)

The project profile series of Blender 3D Architect is a collection of articles with the aim of feature projects related to architectural visualization. We invite talented artists to share additional details about each project to demonstrate how they approach each stage of the process. And also allow each author to publicize their work among our […]

Free architectural scenes for Blender (update)

For artists trying to create their first projects using Blender, the setup process of a scene can become challenging. Once you have the scene modeled and with all assets and materials, finding the best rendering settings could take a while. Would it be great to have a scene to use as a “template” or a […]
