Re: Blender now supports IFC export

Really appreciate the testing @paullee! - The window is because BlenderBIM does not currently support import of multiple materials per single object (i.e. the geometry is correctly imported, but the lack of materials make it look wrong). I am interested if FreeCAD is capable of this, since I suspect...

Re: import non brep geometry

If it helps at all, I can parse it with IfcOpenShell just fine, as well as open in the BlenderBIM Add-on. Also a note that there have been many builds of IfcOpenShell with the same version '0.6.0b0' but different commit hash (but I don't know how to check on a precompiled version), so it may be that...

Re: Blender now supports IFC export

On Mac and Linux, the BlenderBIM Add-on is the IFC viewer of choice for me. On Windows, it depends. I often open it in XBim as well as the BlenderBIM Add-on, simply because it's faster in XBim (IfcOpenShell still has some pending bugs for multiprocessor import - so I can't rely on it yet) I'm not su...

Re: Blender now supports IFC export

@paullee - I find certain things very easy to model with meshes in Blender, and other things easier to model with solids in FreeCAD. I have done a project where portions were created in FreeCAD and portions were created in Blender. One thing which Blender can do much better than FreeCAD is handle _h...

Re: New OSArch Wiki for open-source architecture workflows

I am not aware of anybody who has achieved a full workflow from sketching to production using pure free software for any project that is of a significant size (i.e. an entire house, or larger). Even for a small house, fabricators use extremely proprietary CAM software for steel or wood. As for facil...

New OSArch Wiki for open-source architecture workflows

Just wanted to share with everyone that a while back, because one didn't exist, Dimitar (who owns the domain) and I (set up the server) set up https://community.osarch.org/ - a forum to talk around doing AEC with 100% free software - this spans across a few communities, like FreeCAD, Blender, buildi...

ok, it's a computer science job not an architect job.
This is a problem to be solved :-)
Thank you
