    Greeting all you blue world travelers.

    @PureRNG showed me this project and it looks like a fun and interesting way to spend my free time.

    Ok, and now a bit about myself.

    I am an architectural practical engineer (thats quite a mouthful ) and i work at an architecture firm so i work as a designer on a daily basis, unfortunately i can't show any of my work as i have signed a NDA, once i set up a work station at home and research the architecture of the period a bit more i'll add a few sketches.

    I am proficient in Autodesk Revit and i used 3D Max a few times, so i plan on creating the main model in Revit and then export it to 3D Max for polishing it and other final touches, if everything works as i expect it to, it will allow me to make not only the outside part but also the interior as a single object in half of the time.

    Thats at least the plan in theory, i haven't tried exporting files as objects so if you have any experience in it let me know what mistakes to avoid.

    Well thats basically everything i can think of the top of my head, if you have any questions feel free to ask.

    Hi @Caldary, welcome! :ahoy

    We're always happy to have more architectural artists on the team. Our Coordinator for architecture is @Ashinokami, who should reply soon to offer more information about the kinds of buildings we need.

    I'd be interested in knowing how you get on with that @Caldary; I'm trying to use Cinema 4D at the moment for architecture and it's not the easiest software for CAD as you can imagine, but I don't yet know enough about Revit to come up with a workflow...it'd save a tonne of time though! :)

    @Robert Nutter i know many people that start drawning models prefer to use sketchup as they say its easier to understand, i myself only seen it once about a year ago so i cant really give you accurate opinion about it

    *Edit, actually thinking about it now i might actually give it another look for furniture modelling (a little passion i have)

    I gave it a try but for some completely silly reason I couldn't get my head round it. I've taught myself both Revit and C4D fine, but I think it was the interface that threw me in Sketchup...stupid, I know! :modding

    I use sketchup. Its ok not perfect. Tends to slow down when you have too much stuff on the screen.

    Perhaps I should give it another go then. I love C4D's range of tools but it really falls down when it comes to measuring...:rolleyes:
