Title: Brick wall with arches
Post by: mabulsoud on March 30, 2018, 04:04:19 PM

I'm testing out railclone to see if I can build brick walls with arches for an interior project I'm working on. I've seen videos of generic brick walls built with railclone and it looks fantastic!

My main concern is getting the right shape of brick around the arches where the brick are cut into shape and not full brick as the image attached. I would love to know if this is possible using railclone, and I would of course purchase the pro version if it is necessary. I understand that you don't provide personalized support for the Lite version. I just want to know if it's possible since my purchase of the pro version is hinged on that possibility.

Thank you

Wow what an amazing tool! I was actually able to get most of the way there with the lite version in a few hours! I have already placed the order for the pro version and waiting for my license.

I have not invested too much time into fixing the running bond as I think the macros that come with the pro version will resolve that issue, but I am still having trouble with one major issue, which is the holes left after slicing the bricks for the arches. I can't seem to put a cap holes modifier on top, and I would really like not to collapse into poly in order to do that to keep things flexible. Would I be able to apply the cap holes in the pro version?

Hi, mabulsoud

welcome to the forum.
Happy to see how fast You got style working for You.
Capping holes- Yes, You will be to add more modifiers than in lite version. Capping holes is one of them.
RailClone is very good for bricks. And brick modeling is just one of many use-cases.

Hope to see You in the pro section of the forum!
