There has been a growing community of individuals and studios using Blender for architectural visualizations and renderings. A website has been started by a French architect to promote using Blender for architecture, and bring together content for Blender.
The website is quite nice you will find materials, textures, links to useful scripts related to architecture, as well as tutorials. The materials look pretty nice. The website uses mediawiki and help is more than welcome.
As stated by the websites author:
I launched a website powered by Mediawiki to gather resources about doing Architecture with Blender. The purpose of it is to become a place where you can find resources to help yourself doing Architecture in Blender.
To begin, you could find :
- architectural materials
- models (furniture and so on...)
- tutorials and articles (how to make a panorama, a seamless texture? Which renderer to use? What are the tricks to use vegetation in your renderings? How to import models from each architectural software? etc...)
- scripts (snap, cross section...)
Well, an all-in-one place to share our tricks and work to improve our Blender experience.
Every one could upload content once log in. You can upload .blend files ! All the website content (text and files) should be under Free licenses.
