City Design case study

We are explaining here how to use "City Design" with the real case below. In this case, 3DS Max of Autodesk 3DS Max 2010 and Chaos Group V-ray 1.5.3 for rendering are used.

  1. Road network creation
    Road polygon data is generated by reading the Illustrator file (.ai) you have created.

  2. Site creation
    Site is generated by reading the Illustrator file (.ai) you have created.

  3. Zone creation
    Each zone is created as an independent object by importing the image file (.tga) you have created.

  4. Acquiring height data
    Foundations of the zones are created by importing the image file (.tga) you have created and the height data is assigned to each zone using DEM.

  5. Building creation within zones
    Buildings are automatically generated as show below.

  6. Texture Rendering
    Rendered textures and building models are extracted.

  7. Import into UC-win/Road
    Import model list meta files, model files of the buildings (.3ds) and texture files (.jpg) by using the UC-win/Road plug-in option.
