“Blender 2.6: 3D pour l’architecture” a book in French about the use of Blender for architectural design and visualisation

Blender 2.6 : 3D pour l’architecture can be found in all good libraries, edited by Eyrolles.

As an architect, I use Blender daily at nearly all stages of my workflow, from quick sketching to final rendering. I tried to write the book with which I would have loved to learn Blender, from my own experience, but keeping in focus other possible workflows. You will learn the basis of Blender, always with architectural examples, and advanced design and modelisation tools, everything needed to produce images, either realists or artistics, and a lot of tips and tricks to improve your workflow. Among other things:

  • Use the mesh tools as virtual clay to give life to your ideas and concepts
  • Build organic buildings or any curvy design with the subdivision surface
  • Learn how to use Curves for intuitive sketching and modeling
  • Improve your models, make them mor complex and rich with the modifiers
  • Learn the precision tools that can make the use of Blender for precise modeling fast and effective
  • Discover the materials an texture, with typical examples on how to apply them on buildings
  • Make any artistic (NPR) rendering with the node editor
  • Use Cycles for ultra-realistic renderings
  • Animate anything in your scene for stunning walkthroughs

  1. Bonjour,
    J’ai acheté ce livre une bonne semaine avant le 27 avril chez Eyrolles à Paris ; je ne savais pas qu’il est en avant-première!

    Le livre est vraiment trop bien ; le plus intéressant livre sur Blender que j’ais jamais vu en anglais ou français. Tandis que je me prétends assez expérimenté en graphisme 3D, j’en ai appris beaucoup, surtout sur l’infinie d’options en Blender. Je fais les petits efforts de visualisation du trait de charpente traditionnel à mon blog ; j’aurais voulu avoir ce livre dès le début.

    Encore bravo,

  3. Bonjour Matthieu.

    As-tu prévu quelque chose pour tenir ton livre à jour ?

    Par exemple, il me semble important que tes lecteurs soient mis au courant de l’existence du nouveau script de gestion des calques d’anfeo.
