Auto-Building is a powerful add-on that utilizes Blender’s Geometry Node to effortlessly create a wide range of building structures according to your preferences!
You don’t need to know Geometry Node to use this, everything is streamlined under an easy to use interface
With this add-on, you can input various building elements such as doors, windows, panels, and more, which will be procedurally distributed across a simple mesh, resulting in a complex and detailed building.
It comes with a custom interface to make the creating process easy for you. You don’t need to know geometry node to use it! Simply drag and drop the collections of object you want to use and change the settings to get the result you want. The beauty of this add-on lies in the balance it offers between automation and manual control. While it streamlines the building creation process, it also allows you to retain some handmade modeling control. This way, you can fine-tune the look and achieve the exact aesthetic you desire.
The main idea of the tool workflow is that you will assign special materials to the faces you want to see turned into objects. And if this is object has a mesh with a boolean material applied to it, it will even create a hole in your facade. No more flat windows because you’re lazy to add a hole in your facade!
The add-on automatically place then for you.
The principle also applies on edges. Using the Crease attribute, you can decide to scatter a specific object along the top of your building to create repetitive details for instance. Or extrude it to add ledges.
Apply a roof material on your simple geometry to instantly see roof tiles appear, so you don’t have to place them yourself!
The add-on comes with a blend file containing sample buildings for you to see what you can do or to use them in your own project! There are more than 50 of them 🙂
They are also marked as Asset with their own thumbnail if you want to use them in your asset browser.
The Auto-Base will help you create a base for the Auto-Building to work. It won’t replace a hand modeled one but it’s perfect to get a kick start or generate cheap background buildings.
