overlapping clapboards?

Hi shokan - well MoI does not have any special "Clapboard" command that would automatically just coat an object with boards like that.

You would need to do something like model one board and then duplicate it or something like that. It would probably take quite a bit of work to do that.

You may want to check out some other programs that are focused more exclusively on architecture, they may have some specific tools for that kind of stuff.

Some rendering and animation type programs are also more focused on replicating one object in mass quantities, so one of those types of programs may be better suited for that particular task. I think LWCAD has a bunch of stuff for this in particular, check out: http://www.wtools3d.com/swf/online_help/LWCAD_30/shingles/shingles.htm .
