Tutorial: Architectural Modeling


Rob Tuytel takes 45 minutes to dive into architectural modeling with Blender.

Design your own office building and make that looks photorealistic. Learn the basics of exterior architecture modeling in cycles.

If you know how to build a simple basic building/model and put the right textures on it with some cool reflections, it's just a small step to make that super great dream building you always wanted to create.

This is a 40 minutes tutorial, and i will explain how to create:

  • Window frames
  • create the base model
  • Glass shaders
  • Sky reflections
  • Street furniture

Basics of blender are required, but in fact this is not a very hard scene to create. I put all the textures together and there is a blend file available of course. Some textures are mine, but some are from cg textures. Of course my textures are free to use.

I have a LONG history with Blender – I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)
