Hi everyone! This is my first post ever, so please be patient with me!
As the title explains, I am completely new to Blender. I have finished BlenderGuru’s tutorial for a Donut, and that is it! However, I did use a program Called Cheetah3D before where I was trying to accomplish the same thing, the program got substituted with Blender by my teacher, and for about 2 weeks, I have been trying out different methods and try to learn the program as best as I can.
My story is that I am currently working on my master thesis which evolves around creating an AR app in the area around the City hall of Oslo. My task would be to modell the area around the City hall and the City Hall itself, in different timelines. I would like to showcase how the area looked in 1840-1930 before the construction of the City Hall, and then I want to modell the area when the construction began 1930-1950, and then how it looks now. Or an in-depth segementation of the construction era process.
As it stands I just finished the “How to create a city in Blender” on YouTube which showed me the insane level of complexity and opportunities that exists when working with Blender in contrast to Cheetah 3D. While the OpenStreetMap addon worked great, it didnt give me what i needed. The City Hall looked amazing, but the mapping for terrain and the satelite image overlay was from how it looks today.
So my question is, how should i best move forward when modelling this area, I will try to add some early references of the area through old maps, but i need a way to generate the models, or create them manually. Answers on both ends are appriciated.
In the Cheetah 3D forums i created a thread similar to this, where other users found me some blueprints of the City Hall itself. I used these blueprints in Blender aswell and tried to create the City Hall i Blender, and then i kinda got stuck. Appriciate any help anyone would give! And as I am brand new to the software i apologise in advance for the headache people may gets when responding to your threads! I will also attach the Cheetah3D forum link in this thread, so that additional information about my subject is easily accessible. Thanks!
