To follow this tutorial you must have a version of Blender installed on your computer. This can be downloaded free at www.blender.org. Follow the instructions for download and install.

The file House.svg that is in the download folder is the same one I use in tutorial 2: Adding the .svg. This file can be downloaded and saved on your computer. Once you have the file saved you can follow the instruction about importing into Blender in lecture 2.

The widows generator script can be downloaded from here:

https://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?270422-AddOn-Window-Generator-2

The images attached are for reference.

HDR or high dynamic range images used in tutorial 54 to light the scene are available to download on websites such as hdri-skies.com. Download one and follow along to the tutorial. These images can be quite large and may slow down Blender as it try to process the information. Try Smaller image sizes as they can give the same result without slowing down Blender.

Similar material used in this course from tutorial 57 on wards can be downloaded from websites such as textures.com. Simply create an account and search for the appropriate material required, download to your computer and follow the tutorial of applying them to the objects. The textures used were:

Stone Wall Texture

Stucco Texture or light plastering texture
