Loop Tools updated for Blender 2.6 and B-Mesh

One of the most useful addons for architectural modeling in Blender 2.5x was the Loop Tools script developed by Bart Crouch. With the release of Blender 2.63 and B-Mesh, many people thought that scripts like Loop Tools would become obsolete or wouldn’t work anymore. If you thought that, I`m glad to say that you were […]

Parametric modeling for architecture with Blender

I really like to model in Blender, and it is not just because I`m used to the Blender interface and commands. In my classes I must deal with 3d modeling with several 3d suites like 3ds Max and Maya for modeling, and somehow I feel that things works faster with Blender for polygon modeling. And […]

Model and texture a Tower in Blender

A lot of tutorials created for artists that use Blender to create games and interactive animation can also be useful for architectural visualization artists. I just found a tutorial called “Tower Tutorial”, which shows the full process of model and texture a tower from scratch in Blender. This is a good tutorial because the author […]

Add-on for Multiple extrudes in Blender

The knowledge to create organic shapes and models are not among the list of skills of an architectural visualization artist. Those are more common for artists specialized in character modeling, but at some point in your work, we may have to create some organic shapes. One of those situations is when we have to create […]

Modeling landscapes for architecture with Blender

As part of the process to create architectural visualization, we have to deal not only with geometrical polygon modeling, but also with organic surfaces. Some of those organic surfaces are required to create landscapes for our projects, which are important to create a context to the 3d model. If you want to learn an interesting […]

Model, light and render a room with Blender and LuxRender

In most projects an architectural visualization artist will try to simulate sunlight on both external and internal visualizations for architecture. If the project is an internal view the sunlight will get into the room mostly through a window. An interesting tutorial created by an artist called Jason Clarke show how to create a simple room […]

Another attempt for an Inset tool in Blender

You may be wondering right now if I`m not making a double post here, because a few days ago I was commenting about the development of an Inset Add-on for Blender. Well, this one is actually a different attempt to implement an Inset like tool in Blender, and this time the author of the Add-on […]
