Modeling a Building

In this Blender 2.5 video tutorial we go through a fun modeling exercise by modeling a building from a single reference. Due to not have any head-on views of the building we model everything by eyeballing it, using some techniques to best approximate the actual dimensions. By the end of the tutorial we’re left with a model that could easily be used as a game asset or as a base for much more highly detailed building model.

    Is there any way to get a downloaded version of this video? I would really like to put this on a tablet and watch it on the go.

      Hi Terrence,

      With this being an older tutorial, we hadn’t gotten to separating out the video from the source files, leaving it in a single download file. However I’ve just updated the post to have the source files and video as separate downloads. Hope this helps!

    I’m brand new to Blender. I don’t know how to change my object view so that it only shows the lines and the vertices.

      In order to toggle between Solid and Wireframe views, you can press the Z-key.
