I’m usually sharing these mini tuts by iToo Software but pay special attention to this one… The usage showcased here is not something you would normally link with RailClone. This new RailClone tips and tricks episode and preset that comes with it illustrate how the plugin can be used to help quickly populate and iterate interiors. Specifically, the kitchen. You will learn how to make a flexible and reusable kitchen cupboard style that incorporates adjustable worktops, plinths, cabinets, doors, and handles. Enjoy!
“This tutorial is split into two parts. In the first section aimed at beginner/intermediate users, we illustrate how to use the free pre-built preset included in the exercise files. This style allows you to create kitchen cabinets by choosing from several door types and heights based on the material id assigned to a spline section, changing the hanging direction, adjusting the depth of the cabinets and the height and offset of the plinth, adding padding to the doors and choosing if they’re inset, partial or full overlay type, and more!
This style is ideal for quickly creating kitchen layouts and best of all it’s easy to reuse, so you’ll be able to swap the geometry and repurpose it for any new kitchen of other types of cupboards that you want to create.
In the second half, aimed at advanced users, we’ll take a closer look at how to create a sophisticated preset like this from scratch, with a focus on logically breaking down a style into several separate but connected generators – a common approach for more complex styles.”
