LWCAD LITE released! July 10th, 2017

We are pleased to announce that the introductory version of LWCAD LITE for 3ds Max and Cinema 4d has been just released.
The current version is fully ready for use in your modeling pipeline to increase productivity.
We also have a great interest in extending the current set of tools with other modules and features in a very short time.

Roofing Tools Single click solution for placing shingles on complex roofs.

Creating roofs with 3d shingles was never easier.
First step is always creating roof. You can model roof object with LWCAD roofing primitives or you can use already existing object.
Once you have the roof object finished, you can apply the Shingle tool with a single click.
Shingle tool is using 11 different shingle categories such as regular, slope, top, barge, etc...
And you can create your own shingles and presets of course.

WinDoor Tool Special tool for creating windows, doors, frames or parapets.

WinDoor is the best tool for modeling parametric windows and doors.
It has custom layer system which allows you to create combinations of frames, windows, doors or parapets.
You can easily place windows and doors into Shape Library.
Then you can insert windoor object directly into a wall in perspective viewport.
Inserted items are fully interactive at any time.
You can use special grid system and align to wall corners.
Windoor object is automatically linked to selected wall object as a child.
It also automatically drills a hole into a parent wall object .

About LWCAD LITE 5.2

LWCAD LITE is a special transition version between the old LWCAD (LightWave) and the new multi-platform version which we are planning to port into all major 3D applications. Current LWCAD LITE version is available for Autodesk 3ds Max and Maxon Cinema 4D.
Introductory set of tools consist of:
Primitives:Set of tools for creating UV-mapped polygonal object primitives. Tools can work in Real-Time Boolean or Drill mode.
ArchViz:Set of tools for creating parametric walls, floors, windows, doors, elements and fences.
Roofing:Complete set of tools for creating complex roofs with 3D shingles.
Modify:Basic set of modify utilities for moving, rotating, scaling and mirroring objects and meshes. Tools can work in nodal and mesh mode.
Snapping & UCS:New interactive snapping and UCS (workplane) system which works with all LwCad tools.
More tools will be ported soon!
