Free molding profiles for architectural modeling

The molding profile is an essential aspect of any interior visualization projects, and in some cases is a direct choice from the customer. At some point during the modeling of an interior scene, you will have to connect walls and ceiling. And choose some proper molding profiles. Do you have any idea of options and […]

Precision modeling for architecture

Exact edit: Free Add-on for precision modeling

A critical aspect of architectural modeling is the control over dimensions or precision modeling. You must have a good amount of tools that allow you to set exact sizes to get an accurate 3d model. If you work with a model that doesn’t have, at least correct proportions, your renders will become useless. In Blender, […]

Modeling a building from a floor plan: New Lesson

One of our first pieces of training received today a brand new lesson, which is about how to create a building from a floor plan. Using a technical drawing from AutoCAD in the DWG format, we go step-by-step on what to do to convert and import that drawing to Blender. When you have the drawing […]

Blender has an incredible ecosystem of Add-ons that allow users to create all kinds of tools and automation. Some of those Add-ons are a must have for architecture visualization artists. Recently, I found another one of those tools that you should take a look! The Archipack Add-on is an incredible collection of tools that will […]

Course about architectural modeling with Blender

The purpose of Blender 3D Architect has always being to showcase projects and information related to architectural visualization with Blender, and that is my main objective ever since I started the site almost 8 years ago. Sometimes I do mention along the text that besides being an architect working with Blender, I also teach Blender […]

Art Mesh: Free tool to convert triangles to quads

The topology of a 3d model can become a problem when we deal with animations and non-regular models made of triangles and lots of n-gons. If you have a 3d model like that, its mostly certain that any kind of deformation will generate artifacts. In architecture its not common to have this kind of problem […]

Cloth for architectural visualization in Blender

The modeling of a scene for any architectural visualization project involves certain types of challenges that every artist must face in order to get the visualization ready to the render stage. And for interior views a key piece on some scenes is the use of and creation of cloth simulations. Those types of surfaces are […]
