Foundry launches Modo 11.2


Foundry MODO 10 screenshotFoundry has launched Modo 11.2, the third and final instalment of the Modo 11 Series. Building on the improvements made in Modo 11.0 and 11.1, the popular 3D modelling tool features poly bevel improvements, new procedural modelling tools, and UV tool advancements. Other updates include animation performance enhancements, Alembic replicator and particle data export, a new cloud-based present browser, a MeshFusion ElboPipe Assembly and updated texel density tools. The new poly bevel features include Square Corner, which provides the option to add a quadrangle at sharp corners of boundary polygons and Offset Even makes the distance of an inserted face even. Maintain Co-Planar Edge fixes some special cases related to co-planar edges, while Edge Rail is a new option for group bevel tasks. Procedural modelling tools continue to expand and provide even greater flexibility. The new Select by Previous operation allows procedural selection of previously created elements in the stack. The new Set Polygon Type mesh works on any surface polygons or selection of surface polygons. It modifies the polygon type, converting polygons into faces, subdivision surfaces or Catmull-Clark polygons. Plus, there is now a new Flip Polygons mesh operation to reverse the surface normal of polygons. Additional features have also been added to align UV islands more quickly and stack islands for more efficient texture usage. Modo 11.2 also sees the introduction of a new UV coverage indicator showing the coverage percentage by foreground items and all items in a UV map. [source]
