Santa must have come early because today we’re thrilled to unwrap the latest and greatest version of RailClone, our innovative parametric modelling plugin for 3ds Max.
Major improvements in Version 5 include new banking controls
that allow you to twist and corkscrew the geometry around the spline; the ability to distribute lights, VDBs and other non-geometric objects
; and a brand new caching system
that allows you to bake a RailClone object to the scene or an external file.
There are also significant improvements to markers
, the ability to lock evenly divisions to odd or even values
, drop-down parameter lists
, improvements to clipping splines, new options for limiting by materials IDs
, plus lots more.
Version 5 is now more optimised, more versatile, and more essential than ever before. To see the full list of what’s new, check out the announcement on our blog
