Silo for Mac OS X

Nevercenter has begun shipping a Mac OS X version of its modeling application, which offers avanced subdivision surfaces, sturdy polygon modeling, customizability, integrated rendering, and more. "Silo for Mac brings the vast audience of Mac graphics professionals a new and highly-anticipated option for 3D modeling." The company says that the Mac port of Silo has full feature parity with the PC version and is offering free access to a registration code for the Mac version to registered users of the PC version, noting that a single Silo license ($110) allows an individual to use Silo on up to three computers (any combination of Macs and PCs). A 17-day trial for Mac OS X 10.3 Panther is available online.

The company also announced Silo 1.3, which it says will be released simultaneously for the PC and Mac platforms. The free update will feature a new Topology Brush, which allows users to sketch freehand lines on top of an existing mesh and automatically create new geometry based on the sketched topology.



"This is a major workflow improvement and could potentially cut down modeling time dramatically," said Adam Cobabe, Artistic Director for Nevercenter. "Possibillities include retopologizing scan data, creating a low-res mesh from a high-res mesh and vice versa, adding clothing and reworking edge flow in problem areas."



Other new additions in Silo 1.3 include a slide tool, shortest path selection, and drag and drop button placement for custom interfaces.
