Architectural Design in Open-Source Software Developing MeasureIt-ARCH, an Open Source tool to create Dimensioned and Annotated Architectural drawings within the Blender 3D creation suite.

Article:

MeasureIt-ARCH is A GNU GPL licensed, dimension, annotation, and drawingtool for use in the open source software Blender. By providing free and open toolsfor the reading and editing of architectural drawings, MeasurIt-ARCH allowsworks of architecture to be shared, read, and modified by anyone. Thedigitization of architectural practice over the last 3 decades has brought with it anew set of inter-disciplinary discourses for the profession. An attempt to utilise`Open-Source' methodologies, co-opted from the world of software development,in order to make high quality design more affordable, participatory andresponsible has emerged. The most prominent of these discussions are embodiedin Carlo Raitti and Mathew Claudel's manifesto `Open-Source Architecture'(Ratti 2015) and affordable housing initiatives like the Wikihouse project (Parvin2016). MeasurIt-ARCH aims to be the first step towards creating a completelyOpen-Source design pipeline, by augmenting Blender to a level where it can beused produce small scale architectural works without the need for anyproprietary software, serving as an exploratory critique on the user experienceand implementations of industry standard dimensioning tools that exist on themarket today.
