Luxology modo is a 3D modeling system (in a way similar to 3ds Max).
It uses a new interesting modeling approach called polygon/surface
subdivision. SubD allows the user to create non rectangular patches
and to control the surface curvature in a very natural and precise
For the end-users, the quality of results and the speed are very
interesting. IMHO, it is important to know that the key people behind
modo are all coming from the NewTek LightWave team. Therefore the
expectations for modo are very high!
If you are interested, I just completed an interview for the Novedge
blog with Brad Peebler, CEO of Luxology.
