A couple of days ago, we released an update for one of the most popular guides produced by Blender 3D Architect, which is the brand new Blender 2.9 for architecture. At the time, the guide was only available on the Kindle platform or as a paperback. We are proud to announce that you can also get the guide as a downloadable PDF.

Here is a quick overview of the book contents:

  • Using the new interface and controls for version 2.9
  • Work with precision modeling for architecture (Metric/Imperial)
  • Use numeric controls for modeling
  • Importing reference drawings for modeling
  • Processing CAD data for Blender
  • Import and process SketchUp and BIM files
  • Manage external libraries of furniture and assets
  • Use PBR materials for enhanced realism
  • Create architectural glass using the Shader Editor
  • Rendering scenes using Eevee in real-time
  • Adding Eevee specific elements: Irradiance Volumes and Cubemaps
  • Use environment maps in the background
  • Render a scene using Cycles for maximum realism

Along with the PDF file, you can download 2.1GB of companion files and assets to follow most of the chapters. More details about the book are available on the details page.

You can get the PDF from:
