Book: Blender 2.8 for technical drawing


Allan Brito writes:

When you start to think about Blender and how it can help people working with architecture, engineering, and design, you will probably associate it with realistic visualization. However, you can go beyond realistic render with Blender and also create something critical for those fields, which is technical drawings.

Using the right set of tools and techniques, you can render technical drawings with Blender, and even save them in vector format.

If you want to learn how to create technical drawings with Blender, you should take a look at the newest release from Blender 3D Architect. The Blender 2.8 for technical drawing: Render 2D drawings for architecture, engineering, and design, you will learn how to create those drawings from scratch.

Along with the book, you will find all the steps necessary to create a floor plan, including:

  • Preparing Blender for 2D "Drawing"
  • Using precision modeling techniques
  • Rendering a technical drawing
  • Using View Layers to control rendering
  • Adding CAD Blocks
  • Creating annotations and symbols
  • Adding dimension lines
  • Rendering isometric views
  • Exporting drawings in SVG

You will find more information about the book on the details page. All files used in the book are available for download, and it already uses Blender 2.81. The book is available in both digital and paperback formats.
