    [Addon] JARCH Vis

    JARCH Vis is an add-on meant to speed up the process of architectural visualization by creating commonly needed items with the click of a button. Currently this add-on supports creating siding, flooring, roofs, stairs, and windows.

    Recent Changes:

    • Face groups are a little more user friendly now, with the shortcut CTRL+N for adding a new face group. Several other updates in this area should also make using them a little easier.
    • Fixed bug with determining the rotation of meshes being converted to siding objects
    • Roofing now supports Shingles and Terra Cotta for converted roofs
    • Face group rotation and pitch are now determined automatically when converting a mesh to roof object
    • Unlimited cutouts are now supported with siding, using a new system
    • 10 styles of windows are now supported!


    There probably are some bugs that I missed with all these changes so if you find any please report them!

    Upcoming Features in no particular order (whenever I get time):
    1. Railing
    2. Doors
    3. More efficient material management
    4. Better UV handling on faces beside each other

    Great addon. I love the improvements you have made. In your last version I was having to use the brick siding to
    simulate flooring with not so good results. but now It all should work. Thank you.

    Hi Jacob,

    Thanks a lot for this very usefull add-on. But you don't must to use uppercase in the name of python file, please.
    Take a look in the add-on folder to analyze the names, please.
    Bye bye

    This is on my to-do list. I am hoping to have that in by version 0.2

    Version 0.2 was just released, I fixed a scaling issue with siding and flooring. I also added the ability to use metric and imperial units. Just change them how you normally would. Please let me know if there are any issue like these being a little off, I hope I got rid of all the conversion factors, but I am not certain I did. Also, when you add siding, sometimes the boards will be really wide, just click "Update" it will fix that. I am not certain what is going on there.

    Fortunately, Blender uses the conventions, you could not do otherwise add-ons!

    Hi,

    Great about metric units.

    sorry about that, I just made it a zip folder, so now it should only take one download. I'll do that from now on.

    Thanks!

    Anyway, for that ones who have g.drive and want to save folder, the easiest way is to save the file on your drive, then download.

    One thing, the siding tin could be used for roofs!!, the only problem here is that the screws should go on the higer wave of the tin.

    Cheers,

    Cheers,

    Jacob Morris...... Your addon is really useful for what I do. I was using it to model a deck and I realized the floor boards have no way to adjust the thickness.
    can this feature be added?

    Yes, quite easily. The main thing is that 95% of flooring is just 1 inch thick. I will add it though.
