RailClone Pro 3.0.7 3ds Max 2014-2017 win

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.
The software 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.

New Features

Added Macros . This feature allows you to create new nodes by creating sub-graphs. Macros to output numeric values, geometry, and generators are all possible.
A new Macro library panel is available in the Style Editor containing system and user generated macros
Create or edit a macro by selecting a Macro node, right-clicking and selecting Macro > Edit
Input nodes allow you to determine the base objects used by a macro. These will become the macros inputs.
Output nodes allow you to determine the type of output generated by a macro. Choose from segment or numeric.
One or more Generators can be added to a macro.
Several examples are included, and you can save, share and import your own macros as well as adding them to a user library for easy reuse.

 


New Features


  • Added Macros . This feature allows you to create new nodes by creating sub-graphs. Macros to output numeric values, geometry, and generators are all possible.

    • A new Macro library panel is available in the Style Editor containing system and user generated macros

    • Create or edit a macro by selecting a Macro node, right-clicking and selecting Macro > Edit

    • Input nodes allow you to determine the base objects used by a macro. These will become the macros inputs.

    • Output nodes allow you to determine the type of output generated by a macro. Choose from segment or numeric.

    • One or more Generators can be added to a macro.

    • Several examples are included, and you can save, share and import your own macros as well as adding them to a user library for easy reuse.

  • Added Update Manager , a new application to download and keep the software updated.

    • Libraries, Maps and Macros have been removed from the setup program. Now are downloaded from the Update Manager.

    • It requires to login with the username and password included with your license.

    • In the current version, the plugin is not updated from the application. This feature will be included in next updates.

    • Update Manager is launched periodically from 3DS Max, notifying the use of updates if there are any. You also can run it manually from General>Update or from the Start Menu.

    • Library, Materials and Maps are moved to C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Itoo Software\RailClone

  • New algorithm to align Linear Generator with planar and closed splines. It computes initial banking angle (X Rotation in Generator) so segment's Z axis is perpendicular to the plane formed by the first and last spline's segment. This method works much better when creating frames, windows, etc.

  • Added Auto Align option to Array Generator->Extend X/Y Size mode. This option creates array aligned automatically with each sub-spline. This mode is very suitable for roof and panels.
    Two modes are available. For both modes Z axis is always perpendicular to the plane formed by the spline.

    • X --> XY : X axis is parallel to the RailClone XY plane (considering local axis of the object).

    • to Spline : X axis is aligned with first Spline's segment (you can use "Make first" vertex and "Reverse" spline to modify alignment).

  • Added Generator A2S->Clipping Area-> Hierarchy Checking Mode . This options determines the way that RailClone processes stacked splines for Extend X/Y Size mode.

    • Complete uses the original RC2 behaviour, stacked splines are alternatively include/exclude geometry

    • None treats each spline as unique, overlapping or stacking splines has no effect

    • ' By Material ID uses the material ID assigned to the splines to determine which belong to the same array.

  • Added RailClone Color : A new map type that is similar to Forest Color, providing random textures and tint to each segment.

    • Compatible with V-Ray, Mental Ray and non-instanced geometry.

    • Number of maps is increased to 20 (instead of 10 for ForestColor).

    • In future Forest updates, ForestColor and RailClone Color will be interchangeable.

    • Added "Color Seed" to Transform node. If not zero, value is used as random seed for RailClone color

  • Added Style Linking : This feature lets you to link a RC object to another, so Style changes done on Master are dynamically reproduced on slave.

    • Update is done when Style Editor is closed, importing a Library Style or manually clicking the 'Update' button.

    • Optionally material is also copied from Master object.

    • Parameter values are copied from master as well, except those have been modified by the user. This mechanism works in same way than Library/Copy Style operations, and the behavior can be modified from "General" settings.

  • Added 'Retain Value Mode' to Numeric parameters. It overrides behaviour for Retain value feature (used on Library, Copy Style and Style Linking procedures):

    • Auto : parameter value is retained if has been modified by the user.

    • Local : retain always value of local parameter.

    • Global : parameter is always overwritten, copying value from the master RC object.
