The beginning of summer has brought us great weather and long nights but for this week no specials at www.CADgarage.com but a lot of news is starting to roll out for this normally quiet time of year. So even though we like to close a little early on Fridays in the summer we will be working extra the rest of the week to keep up with new products and promotions. So here's a little list of what's happening:
We are pleased to announce we recently became resellers for The Foundry's MODO. I've been looking at this product for quite sometime after hearing great things from MODO users. And lo and behold they contacted us! MODO is truly a next generation 3D modeling, rendering and animation tool for the creation of high quality content. We have now added MODO to the 'garage HERE where you can purchase professional and student license as well as upgrades. We will be adding plug-ins and training materials soon. For more information on MODO visit their web site HERE.
I've always loved Maxwell Render's incredible lighting effects and many of our 3D modeling software clients have been using it as their rendering tool for years. We have sold it in the past bundled with some of these tools such as formZ during promotions and we currently offer the Maxwell Render plug-in for Artlantis Render & Studio. And now we are authorized Maxwell Render resellers and can provide you with the standalone version of Mawell Render, the Maxwell Render Learning Edition and Maxwell Render for SketchUp HERE.
The beta of formZ 8 has been out for awhile and we expect to hear some news on the release soon! AutoDesSys is also expected to announce a few other interesting updates and products soon. Stay tuned!
But in the meantime you can take advantage of our formZ 7 + Maxwell Render bundle and save 30% on the combined price. And you will receive a free upgrade to formZ 8 when it ships! You can find this in our AutoDesSys section HERE. This bundle promo applies to formZ Modeler, form Z RenderZone and bonzai3D. Promo extended until August 31st, 2014!
Graphisoft began shipping ArchiCAD 18, the latest release of their renowned BIM software. All the third party developers are hard at work updating add-on libraries and plug-in tools for ArchiCAD 18. Watch our blog for future posts on releases from D3 SmartParts, Cadimage Tools, Cigraph's ArchiSuite and more!
No news here-we just finished the Artlantis "Give Me 5" upgrade promotion and many of you took advantage of the discounted "any version" pricing that we offered to get upgraded to Artlantis 5. But it's always a good time to throw out some reminders on other things that Abvent and CADgarage have to offer for Artlantis Render and Studio users.
There is a very complete collection of video tutorials that can now be found on Abvent's site HERE.
We also have some links to download the Artlantis Beginner & Advanced Training Guides on the front page of our Artlantis section HERE.
Artlantis Media Store:
The Artlantis Media Store has continued to grow with new media and shaders added to provide you with the tools and flexibility you need to get quality renderings out the door. And there is a lot of free content on the store as well. You can download a 17MB PDF HERE that shows some of the items that are available and how many credits they cost. You will need to purchase credit vouchers for many items and we have Credit Vouchers available HERE in 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 credit sizes so you can get as few or as many shaders and objects as you need!
Happy modeling & rendering
