Here’s another shape concepting tool. Like Cosmic blobs except possibly cooler. It’s calledShapeShop, and it’s severely cool. As you’d expect, it’s a mesh modeler, capable of exporting *.obj files. Great little free tool if you wanna make a shape concept quickly, and have somebody else fill in the detail with a manufacturing model. Oh, did I mention its FREE? Gotta love that.
I’ve thought SolidWorks was gonna come out with something more serious than Cosmic Blobs or CB Model Pro for a couple of years now. Shape concept is just too difficult in a history modeler. If you put Tsplines, Cosmic Blobs and Rhino together, you might have something. Then again, it’s very tough to compete with free. Anyway, try this stuff. And watch this video:
