Marius Silaghi has released Form, his ‘ZSphere modelling’ plugin for 3ds Max, first previewed online last year.
Form enables users to model by placing ‘Form Spheres’. The plugin creates a single surface from the spheres, which remain fully editable, enabling the user to reposition them or change their radii.
On his site, Silaghi describes Form as a quick, creative – and above all, fun – way to model, and we’d envisage it being used in much the same way as ZSpheres are within ZBrush: to rough out organic forms quickly before refining them in another application.
Form is available now for 3ds Max 9 SP1 and above, price €50 (around $66).
