Landscape and urbanism project - Park master plan

Postby ABeton » Wed Sep 25, 2019 11:46 pm

Hello everyone,

I have finished my architecture thesis project of a park, and I would like to post some pictures of the finished project. I did the entire project using open source software:
- QCAD - 2D drawings
- FreeCAD - 3D model
- GIMP - final touches

This is a first mayor project I did with FreeCAD, which I used for the 3D model, and I must say that I am quite impressed with it's capabilities. I wanted to use Bleder to make the final renders, but I liked the raw images from FreeCAD so I decided to use them(and it was much easier this way).

If you have any questions about the workflow I used feel free to ask(although it is quite simple :D ).

Gorgeous! I love the final result. Can you be more specific about the workflow you have been using inside FreeCAD? Which modules did you use?

Ah, thanks :D It was a big project, so I decided to split it in parts. I had one main file with the terrain and other separate files for buildings. It was important for me to have each building in a separate file because they were parametric and had a lot of windows which can slow down modeling a lot. So after I finished a building I made simple copies and copied them to the main file. I did this because I didn't know about Links at the time, which are awesome!

I modeled the terrain and buildings with BIM and Part workbenches. For terrain modeling I relied on booleans, and for buildings I used standard Arch objects(walls, slabs and windows). The trees and people were imported from the Parts library. I took the pictures with the "Save picture" command and set the draw style to "No shading". I also wanted to use the Arch texture and the Geomatic(Geodata) workbenches, for texturing and for the surounding terrain and building massing but I had some issues with them.

It is difficult to explain a workflow with words, but I hope this helps a bit :)

these are simple walls and windows, I used the block option in the wall properties to make the panels

and for the sidewalk I used walls with small height, with sketches as a base

I'd urge you to write up a small tutorial with your process, that can be followed by beginner and intermediate users.

The Arch tutorial is the essential introduction to the Arch Workbench but it is showing its age, since it was made back in v0.14.
I did this because I didn't know about Links at the time, which are awesome!
Well, Links were just added a month ago to the main FreeCAD code, so before then they did not "exist" (for the majority of users).
...I also wanted to use the Arch texture and the Geomatic(Geodata) workbenches,... but I had some issues with them.
Not surprising, since they are still in development.
It is difficult to explain a workflow with words, but I hope this helps a bit :)
As I said, maybe you could prepare a simple version of this workflow. You don't have to show all the modelling details, like in the Arch tutorial, but at least a few steps. I think it would be nice to describe particularly the process of using external files, simple copies, and putting them together to model a big project. I don't know if you tried, but using external references was possible before App::Link, with the BIM Workbench, and Arch Reference. Maybe you tried this?
