Brick Wall Quick

3 votes

This is not a tutorial or script, just download the .max file.

Just trying out a brick wall with several scripts but sadly I have an old laptop so I thought why not try to make my own brick and then use the Clone Modifier (iToo) to clone it to two layers so that I could add more layers at a later date. It worked, I admit it's not brilliant but it might be useful to someone out there.

Made in 3D Max 2009

Added a Script made using Primitive Maker, it will be found under Wall and created a brick.
