Recently, I was involved in a project were a lot of architecture elements were necessary, so I decided create an addon to help me.

The addon can create:

  • Rooms
  • House structure (walls)
  • Doors (one and two leafs)
  • Columns
  • Stairs (strait and curved)
  • Tile roofs

Modifiers are used where possible, so you can edit properties after creation. The addon will create cycles material too.

This is the first version, I’m working on more elements and improving the existing ones.

Note: I have not added windows because there is a great addon for that already.

Looks very promising and usefull!
UI thing: Number of walls button could be at bottom, so you dont have to scroll up every time when list is long.


(Antonioya) #3

Yes, you are right. I put your suggestion in my list.

Testing doors and windows particles and boolean (not applied) all together.
Windows and doors Boolean cutters are boxes (2 objects, many meshes inside object) and every cutter box mesh have one face which are vertex grouped. It is used for particles.

Sorry I don’t understand the need of this Addon.

All the things you can do with your Addon you also can do with Blender onboard functions and some other Addons.
And I think the workflow is not faster than with onboard functions.

I think everyone has its own library of windows and doors and so on.
Because every country has slightly different construction details. In predefined libraries you never find exactly what you need and you have to do it by your own anyway.

Please correct me if I’m wrong.

Kind regards
Alain

I download the zip file,but i can’t install the addon,and i don’t know why?
By the way i followed your install addon tutorial,and noticed that the zip file that you used is 51 kib while the one that i’ve downloaded from github is only 24.8 kib .Thanks for you help.

Did you try moving the file to your Blender addons folder? Here is a test with Archimesh and Window Generator 2.
