3D scatter plots with Blender - Mathieu Gibert

This is a way of getting very nice 3D plot rendered by a professional software! Data_test.txt is a data sample file containing the positions (x,y,z), the velocities (vx,vy,vz), and the accelerations (ax,ay,az) of the particles (careful this is not the input file for the python script...) testPY.txt is the input file for the python script. It contains ten column : x,y,z,a1,a2,a3,r,g,b,size. Mapping, still mapping. Blender 3D Tutorials - Free Blender 3D Tutorial at Tutorial Hero. Blender Artists Community. Blender for Architecture.

Blender 3D as a CAD tool: Using the ProCAD script.

One of the oldest wishes of artists that uses Blender 3D for architectural visualization is the addition of CAD tools in Blender, to make the modeling of architectural elements easier and with better precision options.

Blender 3D as a CAD tool: Using the ProCAD script

A big improvement was made with the addition of new snapping tools in the Apricot project, but we could use a little more options to make Blender get even closer to a CAD tool. Even without native tools that turn Blender into a CAD tool, we have a few scripts that really help and add some great features, available in most CAD tools that can make the difference for the modeling stage of architectural visualization projects.

One of these scripts is the ProCAD from Paolo Provenda, which can add incredible and useful options to Blender. If you want to download the script and install it in Blender, visit this link. Well, most of the script is in Italian and were partially translated to English. Let`s get started? The Complete Architecture Series using Blender.

the Durian Open Movie Project » Blog Archive » Modeling Sprint – A Stellar Success!

Check it out! Holy smokes, you guys. I came in Saturday afternoon surprised to find that nearly every single item on the wiki with a name next to it and nearly 200 people logged into IRC! And things were just getting started! Here’s one of the highlights of the day for me: I had a fantastic time, and a HUGE to everyone who tuned in, helped out, answered questions, organized the wiki, and contributed models! This was totally fun. –Colin. Free rendering by the people for the people. Blender Tutorials Downloads Videos & Education – Blender Cookie. Modelling a character from scratch through to animation.

From BlenderWiki Mode: All Modes Panel: Shading/Texture Context → Image Hotkey: F6 Description Normal Maps and Bump Maps both serve the same purpose: they simulate the impression of a detailed 3D surface, by modifying the shading as if the surface had lots of small angles, rather than being completely flat.

Manual/Textures/Maps/Bump and Normal Maps

Both bump maps and normal maps work by modifying the normal angle (the direction pointing perpendicular from a face), which influences how a pixel is shaded. Bump maps These are textures that store an intensity, the relative height of pixels from the viewpoint of the camera. Normal maps These are images that store a direction, the direction of normals directly in the RGB values of an image. Normal maps in Blender store a normal as follows: Red maps from (0-255) to X (-1.0 - 1.0) Green maps from (0-255) to Y (-1.0 - 1.0) Blue maps from (0-255) to Z (0.0 - 1.0) Since normals all point towards a viewer, negative Z-values are not stored (they would be invisible anyway).
