I just started a modern house project and I want to start with a layout of the house. Is there any feature in Blender that basically lets you draw your layout?

(Sorry if this question is a no brainer, I am new to architect in Blender)

Thanks in advance

  • $\begingroup$ @RayMairlot something that would let me layout all of the rooms I want in my house $\endgroup$ Jul 21 '17 at 17:53
  • $\begingroup$ If you are asking about doing some type of blueprints, I think that is best done in Photoshop/GIMP. However if you want to do this is Blender this should get you started. youtube.com/watch?v=PSqiswfVb5k $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Could you better explain what the capabilities of the add-on would be? There are many ways you can speed up the modeling, the choiche depends on your needs. Did you already tried archimesh add-on? youtu.be/IoMeS5ZpfXw?t=5m24s $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I think Achimesh is what you are looking for: blendernation.com/2015/07/10/… $\endgroup$

Use the Archimesh addon. It is included as part of blender just needs to be enabled in the System Preferences window.

As described in the github page:

Is Blender add-on for creating architecture elements: Rooms, Houses, Columns , Stairs, Doors, Windows, Tile roofs, Kitchen cabinets, Japanese curtains, Roller curtains, Venetian blinds, Books, Lamps

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks! I clicked on the GitHub page. I cannot find a download button though... (I am sorta new to add ons too) $\endgroup$ Jul 21 '17 at 18:05
  • $\begingroup$ You don't need to download it, it is part of blender. Just enable the addon. $\endgroup$
