Re: blender-osm: OpenStreetMap and terrain for Blender

So what about a new page about Blender and useful Plugins and maybe some howtos in the OSM wiki?

There is no specific wiki page "Blender" so far ...

Re: blender-osm: OpenStreetMap and terrain for Blender

The addon has been rewritten from scratch to support 3D elements of OSM to the fullest extent.

Further details are here: https://github.com/vvoovv/blender-osm

Take look at the snapshot in the top message of this thread. The imported scene of New York on the snapshot contains more than 100.000 buildings.

Looks good! No nasty effects at complex buildings.
I consider to use your algorithm for my project, may I?

The addon is released under GPL license, since all addons for Blender must have GPL license.
Actually, you don't need to ask my permission.

However, if you employ GPL code in your project, you have to distribute your project under GPL.

Re: blender-osm: OpenStreetMap and terrain for Blender

Oh, well, I consider OSM go as open source anyway (because it is JavaScript).
But you are right, I have also to express my self about the copyright. And that is GPL. I will write it to the wiki page.

And about the roof algorithms I also mend, if you may give me some hints if I have questions.

Impressive!

Re: blender-osm: OpenStreetMap and terrain for Blender

Time to reveal some features of the premium version of the blender-osm addon. A real world woody landscape with lakes has been generated by the premium addon to be released later. It's based on OpenStreetMap data. See the location of the virtual camera on the 2D map. All customers of the base version will get a discount for the premium one.
