Suggestions for RailClone Tips&Tricks tutorials
« on: November 20, 2013, 10:36:07 AM »
In order to explain the main features of RailClone in a simple and accessible way, we are releasing a series of short Tips & Tricks tutorials.  In the first episode “Creating a Wooden Floor”,  we show you how to create 3 different models of wooden floor. 

These tutorials are made by request, so if you have an issue you want to be featured, please post here your ideas. Stay tuned for upcoming episodes.

Thanks,

Thanks for last tutorials, it is very useful!

Some suggestions from me:
first is tutorial how to make bookcase like shown here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soFa0VYAEO8 or like this, mixing horizontal and vertical books


Second is little bit similar but difference is random count of objects in depth and  these "goods" are sorted by groups, something like this


Regards,
Sergey

Great idea Carlos and much appricated for us time poor artists.
Couple of suggestions
-Roof tiles
-Frameless curtain walls with spider joints
-Windows and doors
-Louves
-Wall tiles - similar to foor boards I guess but can you make them in a vertical plane

I also second the idea of scattering books and general objects on shelves.

Great so far.

Railclone should be perfect for creating ceiling tiles. Ive attempted to do my own, but struggled with getting the spacing correct.

See attached photo. I wasnt able to have rc put a ceiling light every 3 or 4 tiles in each direction. I could only get 'bands' of lights.

Thanks! The Ceiling tutorial is already recorded but it was based on an Armstrong tegular ceiling. It may not have been that exact one but it should certainly help you to recreate it :)

That's great, too!  Also spec the tegular from time to time...I look forward to the tutorial so very much!
Thanks again.

Definitely a roof tiling system would be awesome. With the proper ridge tiles/wet verges etc :)
