RailClone Parametric Shelving

In their continuous effort to make the use of RailClone as easy as possible, Long time blog & challenges sponsor, iToo Software, created a new short how-to tutorial that showcase how RailClone can act as a Bookcase creator.


In this Tips & Tricks tutorial we look at how RailClone can be used to create procedural furniture. Anything with a regularly repeating pattern or that features modularity as part of its construction is an ideal candidate for a RailClone style. Instead of needing a library of bookshelves in various sizes, creating procedural furniture will allow you to generate a model with any dimensions that fits the scene exactly, and with very little effort. The image below shows the style created in this tutorial in 3 different configurations.
