Somewhere in the Cloud – October 10, 2011 – Today Braid Art Labs LLP released new OS X and Windows versions of their unique 3D Modeling Software, GroBoto.

This release includes major advances in Braid's proprietary, unprecedented, automated mesh generation technologies.

"Terms like Revolutionary are tossed around pretty loosely in the CGI industry — I like to avoid hyperbole…" said Braid Co-Founder Darrel Anderson. "…I will note that GroBoto's core technologies are original and unprecedented. They are also very new, which means what you are seeing in GroBoto is more emergence & evolution than revolution. We are indeed on to something very big here… a complete system we have termed MetaSolid modeling. It's scope will become increasingly apparent over the next few months."

These latest advancements in GroBoto's automated meshing technologies result in both higher quality meshes and lower overall polygon counts. That expands the range GroBoto's exported meshes, making them more malleable & responsive when imported into other 3D apps. While not particularly flashy, these mesh improvements are a technological leap, and vital cornerstone in Braid's future plans for the MetaSolid modeling toolset going forward.

This is evidenced in Braid's ongoing development of a GroBoto-to-modo® workflow. That development includes the realize (early this year) of our first GroBoto/Modo Toolkit.
