- Shelves for holding books or small objects.
- Background element that provides visual interest; e.g. box shelves.
A handy tool that generates 'floating' style shelves for your interior visualisations. This tool provides various preset shelf shapes (e.g. straight, L-shaped and box), as well as, various cloning options for creating visually pleasing shelf arrangements using proportional scaling.
UVs and polygon-part names are auto-generated, however, ‘pack and paint’ is left to the artist
To use this tool,
- Left-click on the ‘Shelf’ button in the Arch-E user interface.
- Left-click in the 3D viewport.
- Select options as required (see below).
The shape of the shelf sections. Choose between,
- L-shapoed (mirror)
Width of the bottom-most shelf section.
Height of the bottom-most shelf section.
Depth of the shelves.
Thickness of the shelf.
Controls size of chamfer that's applied to the top leading edge of the shelves. A value of zero disables this chamfer.
Chamfer Top Round
Rounding level for the top chamfer. A value of zero disables rounding.
Controls size of chamfer that's applied to bottom leading edge of the shelves. A value of zero disables this chamfer.
Chamfer bot Round
Rounding level for the bottom chamfer. A value of zero disables rounding.
Sets the number of clones. Minimum is 1 and maximum is 7.
Sets the dimension/s along which scaling will occur.
Clone: Scale Factor 1/
Sets the scaling factor that's applied to each succesive shelf. Setting this value to 1 will disable scaling.
Direction in which cloning occurs; e.g. You may choose to clone along the vertical or horizontal axis.
Clone: Position Offset
Adds an additon position offset. Increasing this value will move the shelves further apart along the chosen Clone Direction.
Sets the alignment of the shelves with respect of the horizontal or vertical axis; e.g. for vertically-cloned shelves this is equivalent to justification.
