The Foundry has announced MeshFusion, the long-awaited Boolean modeling plug-in for Modo.
MeshFusion for Modo has been developed by Braid Art Labs based on the previous GroBoto technology. This new modeling plug-in is available exclusively for Modo 701 SP4 and opens up a new world of creative possibilities for artists and designers.
MeshFusion takes away the challenge of complex and frustrating Boolean operations and makes the process of producing high-quality models consistent and accurate.
The software enables users to take advantage of Boolean modeling operations, for interactively blending, adding, and subtracting objects to create watertight models faster and more efficiently. Users can interactively blend live shapes, seamlessly manipulate and edit the joins between objects, and export a watertight mesh for 3D printing.
With MeshFusion, users can create Booleans between subdivision-surface (SDS) objects, control the blending between the resulting surfaces, and edit assembly instructions creatively with three intuitive editing modes (3D Tree Fusion, Schematic Fusion and Fusion Strip). The plug-in can be used with deformers and other Modo modeling tools. The final mesh is output as a single unified mesh ready for further editing or export to .STL for 3D printing.
MeshFusion is available for Modo 701 on Windows and Mac OS X. It is priced at $395, but is currently available for $295 until Feb. 10.
