“RailClone’s 2D array generator is ideal for creating many types of building facade. In this Tips & Tricks episode we’ll look at how to create point-fixed glazing, sometimes also known as spider glass. The style created in this tutorial is designed to be simple to adjust for fast iteration and easy re-use in future scenes, additionally the same techniques can be applied to a wide range of different curtain wall and facade styles.”
