Building a free 3D house modeling tool. To be available on macOS/OS X only, possibly iPad at some point. This video series demonstrates the ongoing development of an app for macOS for creating 3D models of buildings and similar structures. The aim is to provide a simple interface allowing users without intimate knowledge of 3D modeling apps or 3D editors to create a houses in a simple 3D environment (built with Ogre3D). Parameters like dimensions, number of storeys, window shapes, roof shape, etc. can be used to describe the building in real-world terms. Users should be able to quickly create 3D models of buildings - and similar structures - that still look realistic and cover a wide range of building shapes. The user should however never need to resort to low-level editing of 3D shapes, points and polygons.
