Unleashing Creativity and Precision
One of the key features that sets Facade Maker apart is its ability to define precise boundaries for glazing systems by editing flattened surface families. This allows architects and designers to have full control over the shape and size of the glazing, ensuring that their vision is accurately translated into the final product.
Customization is at the heart of Facade Maker, with a wide range of profile types, materials, glass thicknesses, and anchoring systems to choose from. Whether you are looking for a sleek and modern design or a more traditional aesthetic, this plugin has you covered.
Panelization orientation is another crucial aspect of creating facades, and Facade Maker simplifies this process by allowing users to align surface orientation and ensure the correct extrusion direction for panels. This attention to detail is essential in achieving flawless and visually appealing facades.
Streamlined Workflow and Efficiency
Facade Maker offers a variety of tools and features to streamline the facade creation process. The plugin provides versatile profile types such as Cross Type for bisector intersections and Straight Type for intermediate profile creation. This flexibility allows for greater creativity and precision in design.
Efficient edge management is crucial in facade design, and Facade Maker offers two methods to handle edges - Angle Method and Length Difference Method. Architects and designers can choose the method that best suits their needs, ensuring that the facade edges are managed efficiently and effectively.
Offset customization is yet another feature that sets Facade Maker apart. Users have the ability to independently adjust inner and outer facade edges in each direction, providing the flexibility needed to achieve the desired design outcome.
Mullion customization is made easy with Facade Maker, allowing architects and designers to assign different profiles for each direction and edge. With pre- or post-creation settings available, users have complete control over the appearance and functionality of the mullions in their facade design.
Panel customization is a breeze with Facade Maker, offering the ability to define panel thickness, naming, and materials such as glass, composite, aluminum, and more. This level of customization allows for the creation of unique and visually stunning facades that suit any architectural style.
Anchor customization is an integral part of facade design, and Facade Maker simplifies this process by allowing users to adjust axis spacing and corner distance for anchor placement. With different family RFA files available, architects and designers have the freedom to choose the anchor placement that best suits their design needs.
