Great tool for fast simple

Great tool for fast simple houses. Best part is the fast layout for Material ID's. Only critique is I wish it operated a little quicker when making parametric adjustments. Good job!

To install msi file double click on it and follow the steps, it will install automatically the script in your 3ds max, then go to the Create tab on the right dock menu and look in the rollout list, Fast architecture should appear on the list. I will update some explanations in my website. Full version can be get through the autodesk app store or through gumroad, links are available in my website
