Title: feature idea: spline segment material ID determines Railclone object
Post by: Marc on July 11, 2011, 04:59:40 PM
Maybe this would be a handy feature:

Different spline segments can have a different material ID. You could use the ID to determine which Railclone object to associate with a spline segment.

So you could eg. alternate between wall and railing within a single spline, or eg. wall with windows, wall without windows, wall with door etc.

Thanks for your suggestion. We are redesigning the plugin to include custom parts and more Construction Rules, and for sure this feature would be very
useful.

Hello,
Will it be possible in Railclone 2?
Thank you
Pierre

Yes, this feature is already included in RailClone 2. There are two ways to do it:

1) Using multiple Generators (http://www.itoosoft.com/railclone2/reference/refgenl1s.php#i), and limiting them by material ID.
2) Using the Conditional operator (http://www.itoosoft.com/railclone2/reference/refoperators.php#Conditional), which includes a filter by material ID.

We are preparing a specific tutorial about this issue.

this is thanks to you if 3dsmax is still interesting, the updates of this software are insignificant compared to yours
Thank you !
