miniCHALLENGE#02 - RailClone
So, HOVER has ended not long ago, and the holidays are here so it's time for a new miniCHALLENGE, small and fast!
The good people at iToo Software recently released a new plugin for 3ds max, and in the seconed miniCHALLENGE of this forum we will celebrate this release and put it to good use! I give you - The RailClone miniCHALLENGE.
It will run from today, December 6th until January 31st... very fast and in time for Christmas. This will be a good time to download the LITE version of RailClone and start playing with it
About the RailClone miniCHALLENGE :
In this mini challenge you are being asked to submit 3d visuals using iToo Software's RailClone LITE EDITION Plugin in the process. RailClone is a 3DS Max plugin for parametric modeling based on custom geometry parts, definable by the user, and a set of construction rules. This new concept of modeling lets you to build complex and realistic structures for Architectural Visualization, Civil Engineering and Interior Design.
More about RailClone and the LITE EDITION :
RailClone includes a full library of preset models to create Fences, Railings, Barriers, Guardrails, Handrails or Walls. RailClone is not limited to a fixed set of primitives, you can use any geometry from the scene and define your own parametric structures.
Download RailClone Lite, the free version of the plugin and use it in your personal and commercial projects. If you are new to RailClone, see the Getting Started guide for videos, tutorials and more help in your first steps. You can see here the limits of the Lite version: RailClone Lite & Pro.
