What Is RailClone?
The standalone version of RailClone is a 3DS Max plugin for parametric modeling based on custom geometry parts, definable by the user, and a set of construction rules. This new concept in plugins lets you quickly build complex and realistic structures for Architectural Visualization, Civil Engineering, Industrial and Interior Design! If you want to see the capabilities of the software in action, we suggest taking a look to the demo reeel. It shows RailClone used on different scenarios like Civil Engineering or Architecture:
Easy To Use
RailClone includes a graphical Style Editor, where you can create sophisticated structures, defining the pieces, generators, and construction rules. Randomize elements, add conditionals, define parameters and much more with only a few clicks.
Using the new Points-cloud view mode, together the native geometry shaders for Mental Ray, V-Ray and Thea Render, RailClone lets you to create huge parametric objects, made up of thousands of detailed parts. RailClone is fully multi-threaded and highly optimized for speed. For instance, the bridge scene (VRay, 5 min. render time, 2 Gb. RAM) would be impossible to render using standard construction techniques.
The software applies automatically all necessary transformations to create a consistent object. This includes bending on curves, length slicing, bevels and other transformations. You just need to define the construction rules, RailClone adapts the involved segments automatically.
RailClone 2 allows multiple construction blocks for each object, named Generators. Besides the default linear generator available in RailClone 1.x, the new version introduces Arrays. You can use it to create walls, pavements, facades and other fancy structures.
To accomplish special requirements when sloped surfaces are involved in Architectural Design and Civil Engineering, RailClone uses advanced algorithms. Sloped walls, handrail stairs, and stepped fences are not a problem anymore in 3DS Max.
Styles Libraries Included
RailClone Pro comes with a Library of more than 350 predefined styles, including Fences, Railings, Barriers, Traffic, Walls, and other models. The library is fully customizable, allowing you to add new categories and models with a single click and share them with your colleagues.

Getting Started With RailClone 2
Here’s a Quick Tutorial
The easiest way to use RailClone is selecting one of the predefined styles included in the Library. Everything you need is to create a base spline, select the desired model and assign RailClone to it. From here, you can learn how to create your own models. The following tutorial describes in detail how to use the library, and build a parametric wall. It can be completed with the Lite version:
