When I talk with some professional 3D users, that mainly work in architectural environment, the first question is about a quick (time is money!) and best way to model the doors and the window of a house.
The most of cases I must compare Blender with Rhino and Alias Design Studio. The workflow commonly used with these softwares is
- import DXF
- in front view, get the profiles of doors and windows
- in front view, make a plane (the external face of wall)
- in front view, project the doors and the windows on the plane
- trim the surface…voila’
In Blender the “project on to” and the “trim” does not exist (I’ve tried the cookie cutter, but without good result (and, mainly, without quickly result).
So, in your opinion, what’s the best way to model these elements?
This question is very importants for all people that wish use Blender to model architecture…
