Itoo Software, the makers of Forest Pro, just released yet another great plugin – RailClone! It is a 3DS Max plugin for parametric modelling based on custom geometry parts, definable by the user, and a set of construction rules. This concept of modelling lets you build complex and realistic structures for Architectural Visualization, Civil Engineering and Interior Design. I had the chance to take it for a spin during the beta and though I did not create any remarkable images to show here, I found it very easy to learn and the added library of common parts allowed to start using it right out the box.

The library contains 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 too… This is the most important feature in my mind.

Taking RailClone into consideration, I can see how I just sketch line paths in SketchUP to later be used as guides to deploy parametric driven models made out of parts either from the RailClone initial offered library or hand made by me as the user. This is a big time saver and more then that will allow much more freedom in exploring as many variations as possible in a given time frame (having deadlines in mind).

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 using the software.

VERY VERY nice plugin.

The only thing I believe that push people down is the prices for a feel plugins on the market. I totally understand that people or even companies develop products to make profit and keep researching for new solutions for us, but sometimes when you see such plugin like this you believe that the price would be a bit more affordable which encourage you to buy it.

Anyways, congratz to Itoo software for such good product.
