Blender 3D - Architecture, Buildings, and Scenery
By Nanu Robbins

About Blender 3D

Blender 3D is a open-source 3D graphics suite, that is capable of modeling, rendering and animating 3D environments, and one of the best parts about it, is that you can download it right away for free. Another cool thing about it is that the installed program it's only 10 MB, and not only that, but it can run on Linux, Windows and Mac OSX.

About the Author

Allan Brito is a Brazilian architect who specializes in information visualization. He lives and works in Recife, Brazil. He works with Blender 3D to produce animations and still images for visualization and instructional material.

Besides his work with Blender as an artist, he also has substantial experience teaching 3D modeling, animation, and multimedia at Mauricio de Nassau College.

He can be reached through his website, where he covers the use of Blender 3D and other tools for architectural visualization.

Although this is a detailed guide, is far from being full of useless blabbering, and it goes straight to the point, taking you from a to z, from installing Blender and understanding how it works to the post production editing of the final images with another awesome yet free software: GIMP.

I recently reviewed a book called "SketchUp 7.1 for Architectural Visualization", and while SketchUp is a different animal with tremendous power, I feel that Blender has been avoided for far too long, and the truth is that it can easily be measured with SketchUp in many ways. More about that, after the brief presentation of the chapters.

Chapter 1: Introduction to Blender and Architectural Visualization

This chapter will cover the basics on Architectural visualization, the hardware and software requirements for Blender, tools for visualization, and CAD and 3D-Architectural modeling and resources.

Chapter 2: Blender 3D: Quick Start

Starting up with the interface of the software in Windows, and the customization power of the interface. Blender can be a quick tool if you know the keyboard shortcuts, and this is exactly what Chapter 2 covers.

Chapter 3: Modeling

You will learn about mesh primitives, operations such as extrude, subsurf modifier, smoothing faces, grouping and proportional editing.

Chapter 4: Modeling for Architecture

Architectural modeling is all about proportions, and precision. This chapter will teach you how to work with layers, and how to create the basic objects we use everyday in architectural modeling, like walls, openings, floors and lining, etc.

Chapter 5: Modeling Details

Yes, believe it or not, GOD is in details, and this chapter will demonstrate how you can model windows, and doors with the amount of detail you want

Chapter 6: Modeling Furniture

Here you have the option of modeling, of using predefined objects from a library. Also if you really want to create your own designs, there are two sub-chapters that will cover modeling a chair and a sofa.

Chapter 7: Materials

If you lack experience with materials, than this chapter will cover this subject. Materials of course will give life to your scene, so learn this fast, and learn it well.

Chapter 8: Textures

Working with textures can be nerve wracking, and can kill your mood if you don't find what you want, or can't get the texture to map on your object in the desired manner. This chapter will clear things for you.

Chapter 9: UV Mapping

what is UV mapping, and why should you care? well, the fact is that no matter what texture you use, if you don't map it the right way, it will look awful and un-natural to everyone.

Chapter 10: Light Basics

Light will get the best out of your materials, and this chapter will teach you how to use different types of lighting like: Lamp, Sun, Are, Spot, and will show you a simple exercise for best results.

Chapter 11: Radiosity and Ambient Occlusion

For some this might be new terms, but rest assured, this chapter covers all you need to know about this sort of rendering.

Chapter 12: Global Illumination with YafRay

YafRay, just like Blender, is a open source external render, which works great with Blender. Some say it's the external software that presents the best integration with Blender.

Chapter 13: Animation for Architectural Visualization

If you're a big animator, then this will give you all you need in order to create the best animation for you scene, from describing Keyframes, to Interactive Animation.

Chapter 14: Post-Production with GIMP

You surely heard about Photoshop, but I'm not so sure you heard about GIMP, and that's a shame, because this software can help you adjust your image in a few mouse clicks. This chapter goes in depth explaining post production techniques.

In Conclusion:

Blender 3D is a powerful tool when you can master it, and the libraries that you can find for it are in constant growth, so this can be a great option if you're trying to achieve great results with a free software with powerful features, and minimum hardware requirements.

Good luck using the amazing power of Blender 3D in your future projects.

Advantages of Architectural 3D Modeling, 3D Rendering For Modern Building
By Bobby V Smith

In the present globalization Modern building requires fabulous interior and exterior looks. projects of interior and exterior decoration are heavily depend upon the most popular technology architectural 3D modeling and 3D rendering that can be supplied by the contractor or builders to professional architectural firms. Architectural Models are generally prepared using Computer Aided Design (CAD/AutoCAD) and other 3D software that contains various information of building. These details allow you to view your future building before it built and also help to make cost estimation. Using 3D modeling and 3D rendering you can get exact idea about your all building components.

In the past traditional methods were used that require many hours to produce useful information regarding building like design and planning. To stay stable and to earn unique reputation in today's competitive world it is must to deliver faster outputs with high quality and accuracy. Using CAD designs, 3D Modeling and 3D rendering techniques you can save maximum time, cost, efficiency and efforts while making 3D models for your building. All moving objects on your computer give complete idea about your building components.

Advantages of Architectural 3D modeling and 3D rendering include the following:

• Pre Visualization of all type of building from large shopping mall to small units
• Error free solutions that may be occurred while drawings and designing
• Interior Decoration for bed rooms, living rooms, bathroom, kitchen etc
• Virtual tours for whole building process
• Exterior view setups like shadow, parking, trees, lighting
• Maximum accuracy up to 99%
• Material estimation
• Lower costs

An intelligent architectural 3D model contains all information like data, designs, materials, drawings and other documents that help architects to produce building plans, elevations, drawings and cost estimation. Cost is the main factor that must be calculated before the starting any type of building construction. An Architect can apply various imaginations using 3D model and can constantly check their impact on outputs and cost. To produce additional views architects make rotation of 3D models. By making rotation you can also produce other perspectives that may be help you in many ways.

In Last many years 3D modeling and 3D rendering have got significant growth in the Architectural industry due to need of faster infrastructure development. So both techniques are become most popular term for outsourcing. Many of architectural firms are offering exceptional solutions for 3D modeling and you are wise enough to choose proper one.

3D Rendering - Photographic Presentation For Realistic View
By Jenny Shield

3D Architectural Rendering is the most popular concept used to generate 3 dimensional views for any object. 3D techniques have reduced complexity and allow architects to make clear conceptual visualization on TV or on computer. Due to clear visualization 3D architectural rendering has been appreciated by architect industry. It is of course true thing that 3D is quite expensive compare to other techniques but it serves most exciting features which will allow you more realistic for your various concepts and ideas.

You can pre visualize your office or home on your computer and can identify that how your building will look in future. Basically architects are using 3D rendering widely as it allow applying different ideas in different ways. It is obvious thing that different ideas can generate various concepts and design and as output you will find unique design for your building. You can also play with your imagination and that is cost free.

In the past time all the concepts were evaluated on paper but at present time architects are not depended on paper work. Software like AutoCAD makes rendering and designing easy. All the architects are moved on 2D and 3D technology. By 3D architectural rendering you can view moving object on computer so you can view your future building from the entire corner.

Professional 3D architectural services provider firms are using 3D rendering services to impress their clients. 3D rendering is used in many ways like landscaping projects, interior design and exterior design. 3D architectural renderings services provide benefits like full project visualization, high quality presentation, increases productivity, error free models and preview for interior and exterior.

Rendering is also used for floor designing. Proper floor designs make attractive looks. You can now get real view of your floor design on computer. The technique is not only limited for floor design but also used to evaluate textures, lightings and other effects. This technique is like photography as it represents images in different ways. Using 3D rendering you can visualize your dreams yourself.

For outsourcing purpose it is most desirable technique as it is much flexible and can save your valuable time by outsourcing.

"such discussions should not be scorned, for they lead us tothe picture's habitat.
But the issue of the pictureitself must finally be met without words."
John Szarkowski
