Tired of using fixed, hard to modify, assets that require time-consuming manual labor to edit? Wish it was easier to create smart parametric objects that are easy to update, can be used and reused again and again, but requires minimal time investment. Enter RailClone - the artist-friendly parametric modelling and spline-cloning plugin for Autodesk® 3ds Max® that's fast, efficient, and easy to learn.
RailClone is unlike any other tool on the market. Objects are created simply by assembling and repeating existing geometry using an easy-to-define set of rules. If you can model in Max, you can create procedural objects with RailClone
Choose from hundreds of built-in presets, adapt existing objects by adding your own geometry, or even create your own from scratch using RailClone's easy-to-understand visual editor
Thanks to RailClone, now anyone can create and use sophisticated parametric assets.
Just a few of the benefits include:
Versatile With RailClone there are no limits on your creativity. Unlike other scripts and plugins that are designed for a single type of model, in RailClone you can create almost anything.
Easy to use RailClone uses an easy-to-understand visual Style Editor to create sophisticated structures. Unlike other tools, absolutely zero programming knowledge is necessary.
Fast RailClone is fully multi-threaded and highly optimized for speed. This, coupled with the efficient viewport display modes, and powerful instancing means that you can create and render huge objects, made from thousands of highly detailed parts.
Adaptable RailClone assembles, transforms, slices, and deforms geometry to create a seamless object. Just set a few rules, and the object is constructed for you automatically, even on curved paths!
Smart Let RailClone do the thinking for you with advanced algorithms to deform geometry to follow sloping paths and surfaces. Inclined and uneven walls, stairs, handrails and balustrades, and stepped fences are no longer a chore to create in 3ds Max.
Ready-to-go RailClone Pro comes with nearly 400 predefined styles, including fences, railings, barriers, traffic, walls, and much more. The library browser is fully customizable, allowing you to add new categories and models and share them with your colleagues
RailClone Lite is free to use, even commercially. It provides many of the features found in RailClone Pro but is limited to 3 segments and 1 generator. The Lite edition has a limited subset of library styles and does not include RailClone Tools, the ability to collapse to a mesh or user-editable libraries. If you want to know the differences between our Pro and Lite versions, please read this documentation
Note: This app uses a custom installer (and not the standard App Store installer).
