Retopology tools for architectural modeling

A lot of tools available in 3d packages like Blender 3D are aimed to use in character modeling or organic modeling, but don’t seem to have a direct application in architectural modeling. For instance, when we take a look into retopology, most of the examples and applications described deals with the recreation of organic meshes. […]

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 […]

Using the B-Mesh for architectural modeling in Blender 3D

A new system to manage the way Blender 3D deals with Mesh objects is in development right now, and it`s called B-Mesh. Besides the control options that this new system will introduce to Blender, when it`s fully implemented, one of the highlights of the system will be the support for N-Gons. If you don`t know […]

How to improve edge modeling in Blender 3D?

One of the techniques to create 3d models for architecture is edge modeling. I found that for most situations, we will find full control over the model by extruding and placing edges and edge loops around 3d models. A few weeks ago I have posted here a video with a time lapse example of a […]
