Blender architecture scripts

A repository has been created by Carlos Cámara to contain a collection of Blender scripts and plugins specially useful for architecture. He says this “repo” serves these main purposes:

  1. Make it easy to find all these scripts which are usually spread into different places (eg. dropbox folders, authors’ blogs, blender wiki…) and thus difficult to find.
  2. Provide a backup or a time-proof repository which don’t rely on 3rd pary (I’ve been always concerned that those scripts could be lost sometime).
  3. Benefit from Git and github’s social features in order to make it easier to collaborate and improve plugins.
