When I refactored the #BlenderBIM Add-on at the start of the year, I fully decoupled the code that manipulates #BIM open data standards from Blender. The end result is that now there is a high level, expressive free software API for the entire industry to automate, generate, and manipulate BIM data. It's still early days, but the future is bright!

I posted an update on my work with the Homemaker Blender add-on. It's an interactive pointy-clicky tool for designing buildings (the main Homemaker tool is 100% command-line automation, this hasn't changed)

Hey maker people! It's clear now that I'm never going to get around to prototyping this idea for a cheap heat recovery unit. If it works, you can ventilate your building without spending more on heating.
Idea for a ventilation fan with a *cheap* heat exchanger made from kitchen foil, foam rubber, wood, and lots of glue

I actually quite like k9 mail, the status messages are fun: "Next poll 4 days ago"

I knew there was a reason I left the lights on the Christmas tree

Putting some #Nodevember energy into #Laidout.. implemented several vector graphics construction nodes that let you do line "arrows" from any object, and clone on random point sets. I mean it's not making the entire Grand Canyon with a single shader on Blender's default cube, but hey, it's a start!

The new version of #StreetComplete (v26) has a fantasic new feature. It's much faster when download quests, and now will show you all the quests in an area. It's made things so so much faster & easier to use.

Added the first of the two white-on-blue patterns. Only a few more patterns until I'm finished with the patterns for the rear portico, then I have some more sculpture and textures for the stone.

Go #OpenBIM. Go #OpenSource. #BlenderBIM Add-on v0.0.201025 has been released with 33 new features and fixes. 100% free software to author and document BIM data fully to ISO standards. It's built by the AEC community, for the AEC community. Get it today: blenderbim.org

All the coriander plants bolted, but now I have a jar of seeds (also contains non-zero number of tiny snails)

This is a proof of concept Blender add-on that mashes the Molior IFC generator from the Homemaker project, Blenderbim, and some clever non-manifold geometry ideas borrowed from Topologic.

Go #OpenBIM. Go #OpenSource. #Ladybug for #Blender. Coming soon. If you ever wondered the impact of sun hours on the 21st of June in Sydney of a building shaped like a monkey, now you know.
