help on architecture
show user profile  debodeebs
ok if its possible for someone to help on here and ill post images as i go along to see how im doing.

basically ive been looking for the past 3 hours looking for blueprints of exteriors but have no look. im wanting to grab some blueprints as if a guy or company just handed it over and asked to provide a rendered images of it.

once i get the basic idea's then i can go and look for some freelance work.

if know one has the time then a good blueprint site for buildings would be great but all i can find is cars/people/ships ect.

many thanks

Here's a good resource, not all links have floor plans, blueprints or sectional cut outs but they have a lot of great reference images

those that do have some decent ones.

pick a few random ones and start modeling.

I have some freelance projects at home that I can share with you. Pretty ugly new jersey stuff.. but should work well for you. There is tons of siding, columns, moldings and other nonsense. What version of max are you using?

Work on your portfolio like your life depends on it because it does.
Start with good design. These days, with millions of images and videos on the web, a jaded potential employer will click through an image in someone's portfolio in a split second unless it looks good. You have that much time to capture their attention, pique their interest or lose it.
Choose a well respected architect or interior designer's work, get a book or browse their websites and start modeling. If you model and render something that doesn't really look good or isn't really designed well, you portfolio will reflect that. On the other hand, if the architecture looks good that's already about half the work done for FREE.

Also, learn and use Vray - I don't know of any top arch-vis firm that isn't using it.

hence fully 3D walkthrough portfolio in 3d website might make business sense. people tend to spend more time in interesting interactive environments.

the knowledge you gain experimenting with the udk is not wasted if this kind of thing is of interest.

(sorry for unintentional thread derail if that's what happens - just sayin.)

I'd imagine that would more than likely put people off.

Great advice from nm8r. it's not just about demonstrating technical ability, but creating images that wow.

All right! Sorry for the delay. Been trying to stay away from the computer...
Two different houses. Very basic, but will give you a perfect idea of what you may be having to deal with in the archviz rendering business.

Import as AutoCAD (these are .dwg 2010 format), separate by layer (that's what I typically do, to preserve object layer colors) and voilla!

Good luck and let me know if you need assistance.

I am curious as how these would be used as well.. I got the whole extude spline thing down, but after that? Put it together like a puzzle? I don't get it.
