Hello everyone. I’ve been doing a bunch of research on population density and distribution and part of an animation project I’ve started involves buildings. I spent a couple of hours doing some research online into average building sizes, floor plans and things like that. I compared notes with someone and threw together this 3D chart of building sizes. In the attached .blend file are several boxes which represent some different sizes for comparison and reference. I thought I’d share this. I’m sure it will be useful to someone.
All sizes are in meters divided by 10. In other words, if you highlight a building and see its size is 42 in the Transform Properties box, multiply by 10 to get its size in meters (420m). The smallest buildings I tried to guesstimate relatively close square footage. The skyscrapers I didn’t really bother that much.
Disclaimer: actual number of stories will vary depending on your region, type of building, individual floor size, etc. I based my calculations off of many different sources and created some averages in my head.
Also a question related to this. Considering the amount of data I’ve gathered and an algorithm I’ve developed for creating a city a la Discombobulator, I would like to develop this into a Python script. Where would be a good place to start learning Blender’s python scripting? I know ZILCH about it whatsoever, but I am willing to learn. :yes:
