I'm getting into blender and am at the point now where I can model simple objects and do some rigging without too much trouble. Now I'm trying to figure out the best strategy to model an entire apartment, but am finding it much more difficult than just modeling a single object.
First of all, the walls and ceiling are making it very difficult for me to look into my apartment. I can hide them, but it's hard arranging the furniture with them missing.
What's the best way to create the furniture? I'm modeling the couch, chairs, potted plants and similar things in the same file so far, but having so many overlapping objects makes the editing difficult. Should I put these in separate files and reference them in? Should I move them to separate layers?
Any good general tips for modeling rooms?
