GroBoto Lives On
Thanks Everybody !
Description
Release date: Available now on groboto.com
GroBoto is a unique 3D modeling tool that combines the freedom and intuitive ease of modeling based on simple primitive shapes, with sophisticated automatic mesh generation. Groboto’s realtime rendering, flexible solid geometry modeling, and fully automated SeamNet Mesh generation help you freely create, invent & design in 3D. It's the perfect front end design tool for creating meshes to import into subD or sculpting apps.

GroBoto exports meshes in OBJ format-- supported by all major 3D apps . Exports include precise surface normals and auto-generated, complete, UVs (ready for 3D Painting in any app with no UV setup needed). Optionally exports can include special weight maps -- as both vertex maps & bitmaps. Those weight maps have a wide range of uses in other 3D apps for both modeling and texturing.

GroBoto's systems combine real time with solid geometry editing allowing you to conceptualize and design in 3D with unprecedented freedom -- never needing to worry about the mesh structure as you explore.

The auto-generated, high fidelity, beautifully structured, Meshes take the final forms beyond what you normally see in solid modeling systems. They are structured around perfect quad edge loops that track every intersection & seam. These edge loops can be styled to create anything from crisp edges, to mech bevels, to soft organic forms.

For anyone wondering, GroBoto development is focused between a modo plugin and unexpected medical related issues. GroBoto used to be a Mac only application, though it is now available for Windows on the website. It's under the $100 US mark, as Curvy3D is also. The modeler is strong on boolean operations, whereas heavy use of booleans should be avoided in most 3d modelers. They've overhauled the engine, which is why whatever extra time they have seems to be toward fixing the overhaul and turning it into a good Modo plugin.

I'll still probably pick this up when it gets released, but it would be really handy if it could export in the .mdl format (Source Filmmaker's format), since there isn't a very easy or budget-friendly way of making your own, high quality models for that thing, relatively speaking.
