ArchiTools is an advance building modeler designed for 3D artists. It’s UI has been especially conceived to make it intuitive, easy to learn and fun to use. Just a few clicks are necessary to create a complete building, and this new modeler being fully procedural, all its elements can be tuned and modified at any time during the construction process. The same spirit that prevailed in the conception of Velouté is still present here: ArchiTools offers many advanced modeling tools, but always in a well integrated and easy to use form.

Here are some of the features you’ll find in ArchiTools:
Use advanced modeling tools, with an automatic detection of useful alignment and perpendicularities, collision detection when placing or moving doors and windows, and a smart merge tool to quickly draw complex plans.
Download a picture as a backdrop to create 3D models based on real blueprints.
Model everything in either a plane view or a 3D view. Create windows, doors or balcony with only a few clicks.
Automatically construct complex roofs: their creation can be based on the geometry underneath and so follow any kind of shape.
Customize the shape of the roof: though presets are used to design a roof, it can be then be fully modified, both in plan and in profile.
The shading is also semi-automatic. Shading domains and rational UV are automatically assigned to the different elements of the construction. More shading domains can then be created to complete the shading.
Display only one floor at a time, either in the modeler or in the Assemble Room, and easily access the inside of the building to place furniture and cameras.
Automatically place door, window and stairway models at the right position. Manual tuning is then also possible.
Easily duplicate and merge elements to quickly create high buildings.
All the models created with ArchiTools are optimized to use as few polygons as possible, so the geometry handling is almost always light and keeps Carrara running smoothly.
