Parametric ArchViz Guide

I’ve been using Blender for about two years now, and alongside 3ds Max and Maya, which I wouldn’t want to do without, Blender has become another piece of software that I can no longer do without. A good year ago, I decided to devote myself entirely to architectural visualization and have been working on the fascinating topic of parametric shapes in architecture ever since. I have been experimenting with various tools such as Rhino and Blender for a good year now.

In the meantime, I can say that I have achieved some quite astonishing results in Blender without any third-party add-ons or tools, using only Blender’s internal tools and the add-ons supplied. For this reason, I came up with the idea of writing several articles about it here in my blog. However, I realized that this topic is very complex and one to three articles would probably not be enough for the blog. After long and careful consideration, I decided to write a book divided into three parts. In it, I will not only go into the history of parametric architecture and its predecessors, but also show step by step different modeling techniques and approaches in Blender. I will also try to include as many tips and tricks so that you don’t just pick up this book once.

As soon as all three volumes are finished, I will offer them here on my website as an e-book for free download. For those who like the content and the appealing design, I will also offer a print version at a small price, which will essentially just cover the printing and shipping costs. My goal is not to get rich with it, but to provide anyone interested in parametric architectural visualization with a guide that they can have fun with and hopefully enjoy holding in their hands.

The first volume is almost finished and I am already working on the second edition. But please be patient until the third volume is also finished, only then will I officially offer the complete work.
