blender-osm (the base version)

  • blender-osm imports buildings from OpenStreetMap without any texture applied. Building height and number of floors are used to create the final scene. Composition into 3D parts for a building with the complex structure is also processed. A large number of roof shapes is supported. If a terrain is provided, buildings are placed on the terrain automatically.
  • blender-osm downloads and imports real world terrain data with resolution about 30 meter.
  • blender-osm can import GPX-tracks and project them on the terrain.
  • River, lakes, forests, vegetation are imported as polygons. If a terrain is provided, they are projected on the terrain.
  • Imported roads, paths and railways have width. They are represented by Blender curves with a profile object. If a terrain is provided, roads are projected on the terrain.

Get the addon at gumroad.com! You might prefer to pay some price for the addon to support its development. However it is completely optional. The addon source code is available under GPL license!
