CB Model Pro

A while ago I posted about an old low-poly modelling application called Organica. If you were interested in that, then you may be interested in a similar and more up-to-date application called CB Model Pro. It’s a free intuitive “clay like” modeller, and like Organica has everything in plain sight in one window. It’s a beta, and it requires a free registration to remove the 15-day time limit — and then it seems you can keep the fully-functional version forever. Registration keys are still being sent out by auto-responder, but the creators wrote in Sept 2009…

“it’s become plain that it will probably never see the light of day as a full product”

So grab it while you can.

It seems a fine little modelling application, one which includes all sorts of intuitive tools. It also has multiple undos and a paint function. You can continue to model after you paint, and the paint flexes with the model. CB Model exports .obj files, which 3DXchange can import. Mesh-size can be set to low / med / high.

An excellent set of video tutorials here, and there are also some (such as this one) on YouTube…
