Roof Designer is a plug-in, currently only for Autodesk 3DMax which helps architecture visualizers to model roof tiles. I t automatically texture the outputted mesh and even gives the user an option to automatically put mesh shingles, of the user’s choice, on it.
Roof Designer lets the user constrain mesh faces to geometrical planes, making all of the face’s vertices reside on one flat surface. Roof Designer automatically texture the output and can even put mesh tiles, of the user’s choice, on it. This process takes no more than few minutes, a fraction of the time that it takes to get the same results without it.
