Color Theory for Designers, Part 1: The Meaning of Color - Smashing Magazine Color in design is very subjective. What evokes one reaction in one person may evoke a very different reaction in somone else. Sometimes this is due to personal preference, and other times due to cultural background. Color theory is a science in itself. 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. 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.

25 Useful Blender tricks that aren’t so obvious Automatically add a number to the end of your .blend filename In the ‘Save As’ window, press ‘+’ to add a number to the end of the name.

Industrial Design News - Bulgaria-based Jordan Jelev – aka Epixs – is an expert in wine package design and custom calligraphy.

Beyond Blender Render About This Book[edit] Before we go any further with poetry or high hopes, we'd like to say that this book is for version 2.6 (.3) of Blender. It can be used for earlier versions, but the methods aren't guaranteed to work. Also we must assume that you have a working knowledge of Blender modelling as this book only covers the Blender Game Engine (also referred to as BGE and GE). For a better Blender knowledge you should look at Blender 3D: Noob to Pro.
