Cabin in Scotland with Blender Cycles (Modeling Timelapse)

One of the first steps for any architectural visualization project is to create all 3D models related to the design. You can start from scratch using a reference to your project or develop everything with what you have in mind. Regardless of your choice, you need to create or append most 3D objects to apply […]

Plasticity: Open-source NURBS modeler

The primary technique used to create architectural models is subdivision or polygon modeling because it fits better with the shapes we have to make. However, if you change the subject and go to furniture modeling, you might find specific models that demand more control over smooth shapes. For those cases, a NURBS modeler is the […]

Blender for architecture: Grease Pencil and Sverchok for walls (Demo)

As we usually mention here in Blender 3D Architect, using tools such as Blender in architecture often brings marketing and still image visualization as their primary and only potential contribution for a design. It can go much further than “simple” visualization with the current companion tools under development. When you mix those tools with existing […]

Lotus Temple in New Delhi with Blender and Sverchok (Demo)

A couple of days ago, we posted an article about an impressive tool for Blender called Svershock that includes visual programming options to make parametrical models. At the time, it might not become clear the benefits of using such an option to make architectural models in Blender. If you want to see an example, here […]

Parametric modeling with Nodes for Blender: Sverchok Add-on

A popular tool among architects that can create complex parametric shapes of buildings is Grasshopper 3D that works with Rhinoceros 3D. The tool works like a visual programming tool and gives you a lot of freedom to make complex structures that would be time-consuming to make using a traditional extrude only approach. We eventually get […]
