I am doing a three part series on building parametric windows using Railclone. This is the first installment which is starting off basic and is a slight adjustment of itoo’s parameterising windows tutorial. You should watch this first as it explains how the Arithmetic/Selector node works. I will provide the expression anyway below if you don’t require a thorough understanding Itoosoft Parameterise Windows Tutorial
I came up with this Parametric Wall Builder as Im always building houses from CAD plans. It enabled me to be able to quickly build the walls and window, door & garage holes without needing to adjust the geometry by hand, it all works using splines. Its also helpful if a client comes back with changes to the Elevation as you can readjust the splines and the windows & walls readjust instantly.
You can adjust the Wall height, thickness & plaster size using user input parameters as well as the window capping thickness. You can view a short gif of how it works and for the full tutorial you can see the bottom of the page.
For those of you who would like to make a Simple Brick Wall I have created a short tutorial on how to expose the parameters you need as well as making this parametric for the user to change on the fly.
Rayfire & Multitexture
Learn how to quickly build and adjust cladding on the fly for large exterior walls or tiles for interiors like bathrooms. This allows you to change settings such as tile sizes or alignment while keeping the tools parametric.
I have created a simple tutorial to simplify linear workflow for the reason that people are still struggling keeping their scenes linear for consitency and color matching. You can read more about it in the tutorial section. Ill be following this tutorial up with my render settings for vray 3.3 – which is suspiciously similar to Vlado’s 😉
