You can duplicate furnishing items, objects, groups and lights in a series in order to easily create multiple copies of objects. This command is only available from within the Layout Window.
This method allows you to create stairs, replicate shelves and objects, or create a sequence of lights…
This command is also called Array in some 3D modeling software. It is available in 2 different forms in DomuS3D:
- Series: this command allows you to create a repetition along one or all three Cartesian axes
- Series and rotate: in addition to the previous features, you can specify a rotation for the copied elements, choosing the center of rotation
If you want to create a series with a single object, right click on the object and select the Series Command (series and rotate).
If you want to include multiple objects, you can select the Series button (series and rotate) in the Ribbon in the Layout section and then select the entities that you want to include in the operation.
A window will appear that will ask you to indicate the deviation between the two objects and the eventual rotation about the axes.
In the number of instances field, you can specify how many copies (including the selected one) you want to create.
We suggest selecting the button “Apply” for a preview of the series; if necessary, you may want to modify the series’ parameters and then select the button “Apply” again. If you get the desired result, you can click OK to confirm the modification.
