Marius Silaghi releases Form 1.0 for 3ds Max

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.

Additional videos show Form being used with deformers and symmetry.

Form is available now for 3ds Max 9 SP1 and above, price €50 (around $66).
