Fast Architecture generates an architectural structure through a custom procedural mesh object, you can change parameters and watch the results in real time. It's an easy and intuitive way to create a building at a simple level, its versatility allows you to create your own style, usefull for the creation of urban backgrounds.

This plug-in creates a FA_Building object which works as any 3ds Max object: any deformer can be applied, animatable parameters, can be converted to mesh etc ...

Customizable features:

- Columns

- Windows

- Frames

- Balconies

- Roof / Base

- Curved facade

Other features:

- Each part of the building have is own material ID making the texturing easier.

- Manage 6 differents material ID for the windows.

- Tiles, windows and balcony fills have their own UV mapping.

- Most parts of the building have an optimization option to decrease the mesh weight.

- Save/Load parameters in an external file.

- Multiply all distances at once, easy way to adapt the object to your scene units.

Bonus:

- By purchasing Fast Architecture you will also receive Oblong & Oblong Void Primitives for free.

---------------------------------------

Free downloadable models.

Those models were made with Fast Architecture, the purpose is to show how does this plug-in works with concrete examples, you are free to use and modificate those models. Each download contains several .fab files (this is the format file created by Fast Architecture), a library material file, textures and a ReadMe.txt file with instructions; it doesn't contain a max scene file, you will need to have the plug-in installed to open .fab files (demo or full version).

Most of the models are inspirated by existing architectural projects; design, dimensions and textures are just rough aproximations.
