Transcript of Blender for Architects 2013

--> hook vertex to vertex
--> hook objects and vertices to hooks
= all hooks with the same name hook to each other
--> problem: what should hook to what?
--> the object in edit mode has the lead
--> in edit mode you don't see the original position
anymore, only once the hook modifier is hidden or gets deleted Better Hooks 2D Drawing Modifier Nodes Self-Made Parametrization,
Template Patterns Better Team Workflow for Drawings Today's Modifiers = procedural
Node network = data flow, more flexible
example: Grasshopper
every operator is a modifier, every modifier is a node
every modeling step is captured with a new node in the node editor
IF the user wants it, i.e. by pressing Caps Lock Control Lines New Modelling Nodes Subdivion Modifier Node, Distribution Node, Duplication Node - basically the same idea as nurbs:
high level editing
- but with extended / different meaning Procedural Drawing Parametric Drawing Parametric Modelling Level of Detail Curves Apply Mask Modifier - override rule based, parametric model manually
- there are always exceptions
- make the masked area editable
- link it with hooks to the parametric geometry Why Blender? - parametrization / relations by:
parent-child, constraints, bones, modifiers
- customize relations with drivers
--> drivers are amazing! let's extend the idea of
extendable parametrization to architectural workflows! How do architects work? read my paper :-) Better API - operators take objects/vertices as parameters
- make us (the artists) code new modifier nodes (with python)
--> maybe we can at some point connect our geometry to a
simulation node, created by somebody who researches on fluid dynamics on GPUs Thank you for your attention! 2D drawing hooked to 3D geometry
