Exotic Matter has extended its range of ‘Naiad Buddies’ – collections of tools to faciliate exchange of data between its Naiad fluid simulation software and other 3D applications – to 3ds Max.

The Max toolset joins existing Buddies for Maya, Houdini and the Arnold, Krakatoa and RenderMan renderers.

Don’t expect too much just yet, though: the code is still in alpha and, at time of writing, the GitHub changelog reads, simply: ‘Have interface sort of working in new utility plugin’.
