Opinion about some good and robust Polygonal-SDS modeler under 200$  1-20  21-40  41-60  61-79

Hi Michael,

I'm planning to buy a Polygonal-SDS modeler under 200$ and i'm testing :

- Silo : last upgrade 3 or more years ago...I think that Nevercenter has definitely stopped its developing.
- NVIL : Strange UI but it seems very, very powerful, and has active support and developing from the programmer (Istonia)
- Rocket3F : Very young product from NVIL creator (Istonia) and Samardac, with a simplified set of tools compared to NVIL
and with a streamlined UI and a very fast workflow, like Moi's way.

Honestly I almost decided to discard Silo, due to its developing stop.

So...I thought I'd ask your advice.

Do you know NVIL ? What do you think about it ?

My intention is to find a good (and not expensive) SDS modeler to include in my current workflow : Moi and Rhino + 3DCoat + Thea Render

P.s. I'm currently also using the free and very particular SDS modeler Wings3D.
It's very powerful and has a unique set of tools, with a sort of artificial intelligence, due to its developing based on Erlang programming language,
but unfortunately it lacks with HighPoly objects.

Have a nice day.

Hi Pilou,

3DCoat : I already own a commercial version and it's a fantastic software!
Blender : I never liked it, sorry...
Zbrush core : sounds interesting... but we'll know more on September 30th

P.s. I know that also you are testing Rocket3F.

Do You know NVIL ? Did you deeply use it recently ?

Ciao!

Nvil is too difficult for me! Too much shortcuts to learn! Life is too short! :)

Rocket 3D is more friendly! More light! Same sort of UI than Moi!
and...this is not so bad, isn't it? ;)
<<R3F Free version will be fully functional, but:
- you will not have access to Tool Tips, Site Tutorials, Forum and Instant help
- everytime you will launch R3F you will see splash screen "Free version" and have to wait about 6-9 sec till it will be closed
- It has "FREE" button.

Hi glmr,

Where did you get this info...everywhere in the web they say that Nevercenter has stopped developing some years ago...

Nice day.

As I am fan of SketchUp and find it the more easy one on the planet for anybody...
Of course it's not sweet for character modeling!

Hi Micahel,

I guess that you are very busy, so I'm sorry to bother you with my last question,
but when you have some garbage time, please read my previous post http://moi3d.com/forum/index.php?webtag=MOI&msg=8090.1,
regarding my investigations in order to buy a good Polygonal-SDS modeler under 200$ to couple with Moi.

I think that your advice will be very useful for me.

Meanwhile, I wish to thank Pilou and other guys that have already answered :)

Nice day,

- Marco (mkdm)

Hi glmr,

...OK...but the problem is that its developing has ENDED.

I want to buy a software that is in active development.

Anyway, thanks.

IMP www.imp4mac.com The developes recently got a job at AMD as Graphics Software Engineer https://www.linkedin.com/in/daniel-giannopoulos-80a17583

So I’m not sure if he is planning to develop further considering his new position etc. The toolset is limited but it works as advertised.

I was also imprest with viewport performance, in some cases it did put Modo to shame. Really sad considering Modo is been in development for over a decade & IMP is a $30 app.
