“..taste of things to come, and free to use for non-commercial purposes, 3ptools Lite is designed to invoke the experience of line-drawing in a 3D environment by letting you paint strips of geometry in an intuitive manner.
In order to let the artist remain creative, the technical complexities of the plugin are hidden underneath the hood. This means that a large number of cases are handled based on projected artist expectations and modeling environment, instead of forcing the user to micro-manage.”
Note that this free download is a ‘Lite’ version of the toolset for non-commercial use. For full details on the full version, please visit the 3Point Studios website.
