    Hello everyone!

    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.

    How will this miniCHALLENGE run :
    as opposed to the much larger in scope Architectural Visualization Challenges going on here like GH HOUSE & HOVER, this one will be contained in a single thread. the first posts will be reserved for administrative and informational purposes, but all else is yours... you can freely post your work in progress or just final images, it's up to you. Take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions about RailClone or point out issues while using it. The good people at iToo Software will keep eyes on what's going on and will help you out were needed.

    There doesn't seem to be much take up on this?

    I have attached a couple of images that we uses Railclone to produce.

    They are experimental images to see what can be done with RC, I is very powerful and I am impressed but find it quite difficult to initially integrate into our production workflow, I am sure the more we use it the more uses we will find for it.

    In these images we didn't need to use RC and to be honest it probably took longer than usual to do the initial setup (probably down to being a bit naive with the software.) However RC came into its own when we started to tweak shape and gradient of the staircase, a couple vertex moves and the whole banister was sorted. - excellent stuff . We also used RC to produce the curtain walling, again totally unnecessary as we would usually use ‘clone modifier’ (another iToo modifier) and produce it in half the time, but it was good practice

    Hi all,

    I won't probably work on the challenge because I've got a lot of work at this time, but I've made a little test with Railclone. I was thinking to do a very simple night scene, probably in the forest or water... The main idea was to use lights directly on the model with a VrayLightMtl.

    Due to some demo limitations, I have to attach all the model
