Quickly create and display designs in Blender

Welcome to the course Design Quickly in blender. Throughout this course you’ll be learning how to create conceptual designs  for your architectural models. This is a great skill to have especially for designers and artists looking to iterate quickly through different ideas and designs without having to produce time consuming renders. 

We begin with an amazing add-on called Archipack to quickly assemble the house and all its components. This add-on is great for anyone looking to create architectural models.

We complete this section by creating some custom 3D models to add extra detail to the house.

Once the structure is complete we create viewport material for each of the different parts of the model. This viewport material allows the objects stand out and sets us up for fast rendering later.

The next stage involves setting up camera views to capture the different angles of the model. These include front, side and top view. We render these views then combine the views to a single render for a detailed look at your design. 

Learn how to create early stage design renders using the tools available inside Blender. These include the Archipack and Archimesh add-ons for the creation of parametric walls, door, stairs, railings and window elements. We will also 3D model our own custom models for inclusion in the scene.

Learn how to create viewport material and render images instantly using the open GL render available in Blender. We use the orthographic cameras in Blender to render custom views. We finish by adding these views into one final layout.

This course project based and will allow you to develop the skills of 3D modeling while also seeing the result of our progress in real time.

Content and Overview

Archipack: Learn to create 3D parametric Architectural elements

Archimesh: Learn to quickly create large window elements for your scene

OpenGl: Quickly render your designs

The course is designed for practical learning and will walk you step by step through the process of creating  early stage designs. We explore the use of the orthographic cameras in Blender to render custom views and create a custom 2D layout.
The lessons are taught with practical examples and aimed at completing the architectural design project. Learning Blender doesn’t need to be difficult and you should enjoy the journey as you create some amazing architectural renders and 3D models.

Learn how to design in this amazingly powerful 3D production suite and start designing architectural 3D models, design for 3D games, design unique 3D assets, design for 3D printed objects, or create amazing art work.
