Segments are the building blocks of a RailClone object. Modular, repeatable pieces of geometry are combined and instanced using Generators. Because RailClone starts with existing meshes, it’s far easier to use and understand than other parametric modellers.
Assemble segments using easy-to-understand rule based arrays called Generators to create a huge range of parametric objects. Unlike other procedural tools, there’s no need to understand programming principles to use RailClone’s unique approach to modelling.
Use the L1S Generator to create deformable 1D arrays that follow splines, or use a length parameter. Linear arrays are highly versatile with the ability to target the start, end, corners, default and evenly spaced intervals with different segments.
Use A2S generators to create deformable 2D arrays and define the axes with any combination of spline or length measurements. With RailClone’s most sophisticated construction rules, A2S arrays have 12 targetable parts, including the corners, sides, top, bottom,and evenly spaced intervals on the X and Y axis. This array type lends itself to horizontal and vertical styles such as facades, roofs, ceilings, cladding systems and much more.
