The Cladding Tool is part of our paid subscription plan.
Updated for Version 1.3.2
Applying Cladding to the exterior of your building forms begins to transform your designs from simply massing models to a piece of architecture.
Cladding is a big topic!
The first releases of our Cladding Tool (version 1.3.1 and 1.3.2) lays the foundations for the tool and provides you with the capability to begin styling your design. We will continue to expand and extend both the Tools performance and capabilities with future releases.
While we don't want to restrict the size of your project, please be aware that this first release of Cladding will perform best for buildings of modest size - for example, 20 Stories. However, the overall performance is determined by several factors.
We've focused on getting this tool into our customers' hands quickly to hear your feedback. Therefore we have concentrated on the big picture and will work on the details (for example, beautiful corner junctions and applying Cladding to curved surfaces) in future releases.
We want you to get started quickly with Cladding, so we have included three examples of Cladding Systems.
To place Cladding on your building, select the Cladding Tool from the Toolbar, and your view will change to the Cladding Editor.
In the palette at the top, you can see the System field, select one of the listed systems, then click faces of your building to apply this Cladding.
Try out the different default systems by selecting a face and then changing the system. These buildings show the three Cladding Systems:
