What output from the Labs House Generator are you expecting here?

The House Generator is more about distributing modules with a set of rules on an existing model. I do not see a lot of different modules that could be distributed here.

This looks more like regular model/shading work to me.

I think a lot of users would benefit from an in-depth guided tour of these Labs tools, as it is not immediately obvious as to exactly what they _specifically_ do (or how they actually work internally), and therefore users cannot readily assess what kinds of things they can (or cannot) do. Apparently most users take things like this at face value – i.e. “It should be able to generate ANY kind of building.”


Something like the building generator should really have an ACTUAL tutorial describing how to build the modules and how to make them work, step-by-step, as well as some insight on the inner-workings that you can only get from someone explaining things while showing them off.


Just my two-cents.

Hi Yahya,

the sweep node supports rolling curves and such.

well…if this isn't a step by step tutorial, i don't know what is…

and quote:


Block out geo

Should sit on the ground plane

Prefers right-angle geometry (but not essential)

Prefers non-twisting not overly complex shapes (but still creates interesting useful shapes if you try)

(and no, i didn't have to reach down to the depths of hell to find it, pretty basic really

- search with your fav engine: “sidefx labs tool”
- scroll thru to World building>building generator>tutorial
- shrug.
)
