BlenderBIM Add-on installation

From Wiki.OSArch

The BlenderBIM Add-on is an extension to the popular free and open-source 3D authoring package Blender. Both the add-on and Blender itself works on Linux, Mac, and Windows.

Installation

  1. Install Blender. If you don't have administrator rights on Windows, you can download a portable ZIP instead.
  2. Download the BlenderBIM Add-on. You do not need to unzip the file you download.
  3. Launch Blender, and access the Edit -> Preferences window.
  4. Select the Add-ons tab, and press Install... on the top right.
  5. Navigate to the BlenderBIM Add-on .zip file, and press Install Add-on.
  6. You should now see Import-Export: BlenderBIM available in your add-ons list. Enable the add-on by pressing the checkbox beside it.

All done! If you check your Scene properties panel on the bottom right of the Blender interface, you will see a panel related to Building Information Modeling.

Upgrading

Download the latest version of the BlenderBIM Add-on from the website, and uninstall any current BlenderBIM add-on before installing the latest version.

If you are upgrading to a new version of Blender, just install the BlenderBIM Add-on as if it were a fresh installation.
