Q - question

Not feeling like an architect? Leave the hard work to machines :-)

A - answer It's a hard work to design a house in 3D, with all its walls, windows, balconies, railings, ledges, roof, antennas and water towers. But now you can leave this work to machines...

With the free script Building Generator for 3ds Max you can simplify modeling of random multi-storey complex buildings for visualization backgrounds, computer games and other 3D scenes. Building Generator takes a couple of user-definable parameters and generates one-, or a full front of buildings (3D models), optionally with detailed architectural elements. You will hardly impress an investor of a new house of flats, but this can be a very useful tool for entourage objects and similar purposes.

Building Generator

Building Generator is a MaxScript (.mse) compatible with the visualization applications Autodesk 3ds Max, 3ds Max Design and 3ds VIZ (release 9 and higher). You can load it easily just by mouse dragging or using MaxScript > Run Script.

See the resulting 3D model in a YouTube video.
