Blender Market: The best products of this week


I've asked the Blender Market to spotlight three great products once a week. Today's the first item in this new series.


Creating Space Materials in Blender

In this course, we’ll create Cycles-based materials useful for modeling spacecraft. We’ll start with some procedural solar panels that look decent and render very quickly. From there, we’ll create more realistic solar panels using translucent materials and UV maps. Next, we’ll work on procedural canvas materials, similar to those which cover the International Space Station and the Soyuz Orbiter. Finally, we’ll work on materials for space station modules, including both metal and plastic materials.


BlendUp, SketchUp to Blender Converter

BlendUp is a SketchUp plug-in to convert your models to Blender and create stunning renderings. It works on Windows and Mac with SketchUp Make and Pro 2014 / 2015.
