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.

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.

so checked out the website.. and it looks like it got hacked? I really hope it can be adressed and everything turns out okay for you guys. <3 I bought v3 a while back and you have my support and trust.

Hi ijnuh,
No worries — any flak for our lack of communication was deserved.

Thanks to you & everyone here for your continued patience & support.

I deleted my previous posts Darrel. I If I had known I of course wouldn't be so harsh. I'm excited for the MODO plug-in. You and your colleague should be very proud in how you will change MODO's workflow for the better.

Hello ijnuh.

Please see the announcement above. As it says, we have no excuse for the lack of communication -- but there are reasons.

I would like to point out that we are not actually selling v4.

The deal you mention is a v3 purchase with a discount on the buyer's eventual v4 purchase (the buyer is not obligated to buy v4 when it is released). That deal does not increase the price of v3, but rather reduces the v3 price if you are willing to wait and pay a bit more for your upgrade when v4 is released.

Admittedly, it would be unfortunate if v4 were never released -- some buyers would end up having paid a bit more for v3 than others (we don't plan on letting that happen). Worst case, a buyer ends up paying $70 for v3 (still $30 off the v3 retail price).

We have updated the page so that buyers will be aware of development status (as described in the announcement above).

Best Wishes,
Darrel
