Modeling an Eames Plywood Lounge Chair with Blender

The skills required to create 3d models of furniture are a little different than those used to build architectural elements. With furniture modeling you will get yourself using tools and techniques that resemble organic modeling, and not the geometric based modeling used to create 3d buildings. If you want to create in 3d a famous […]

From Revit to Blender using FBX files

If you ever got a file from a client in FBX format and had to convert it to OBJ or other formats to make it work with Blender, you will like this quick tutorial. As part of the Google Summer of Code 2012 a developer called Alexander Gessler is working on to create an FBX […]

Modeling medieval architecture with Blender

An architectural visualization artist can work with several types of projects, even with fields that are not directly related with architectural projects. In my case, I already did some 3d modeling for projects related to Game Design and documentaries. In that case, you should practice the creation of antique architecture and do a lot of […]

That article was about the tools developed by Luke Frisken that might help with precision modeling in Blender. Besides those new snapping […]

Blender quick tip: Extending polygon edges just like AutoCAD

As part of the work of an architectural visualization artist using Blender, we sometimes must create architectural models with the modeling tools provided by Blender. And for this type of 3d modeling, we must rely on precision modeling tools to create the correct geometry with the right scale and measurements. Some people still think that […]

Overview of the new precision modeling tools in Blender – GSoC

One of the projects for this year Google Summer of Code was related to add or improve precision tools for modeling in Blender. And since precision tools are really important for architectural modeling, we should keep an eye on the progress of this project. It`s been a while since the Google Summer of Code 2012 […]
