Cladding system
« on: May 12, 2021, 06:22:57 PM »
Hi.

Need some advice for creating a cladding system with 3 different planks arranged in example file attached.

Tnx.

This will be a simple sequence with a Null segment as a sequence terminator. What is your final goal?

Hi, tnx for the tip, end goal is to have different plank lenght on each row, like start with half plank and continue with full, hope it make sense :)

Then this could be easy. Just depends on what type of generator you are going for.

Is it possible to use a clipping area ?

Sure, only "issue" if your clipping spline height is larger than your Sequence it will repeat part of the sequence.

A repeat is ok, but when I'm trying to rotate the cladding (vertical position) I mess it up, where can i control that?

There is a  Z rotation in Generator's general tab. (Dont have Max right now to make a printscreen)

I have exposed some parameters for you.  ;)
- Bond1/Bond2/Rnd1/Rnd2...
  1=Running Bond, 2=Running Bond flipped start, 3=Random stack with full-sized planks, 4=Random stack with random size planks, 5=no stack

- Override X size will override the initial X size for all planks (Useful to set the overall size for no stacked cladding)

- Rnd X/Y/Z Rotation will add some randomization/noise rotation on every single plank
