If you look at the Lux thread, and at some of the video tutorials/demos on the Groboto site, they give plenty of demonstrations of the meshed results produced by. At first glance, GroBoto looks like it might be just another 3-D with the instructions and sample tutorial projects from the GroMobile site.

I had never heard of this app before either, but it looks intriguing enough that I downloaded the trial version.
There is a demo, and I’d be interested to hear your take on it.
Groboto – The Lounge – C4D Cafe
Here’s tutkrial main sketchbook thread: I’ve personally found Groboto to be a rather impressive tool, esp. In V3, they’ve introduced some pretty impressive new tools for general modeling, and as C4D folks are always looking for inexpensive modeling solutions, I thought it was worth mentioning it here. The Luxology thread about Groboto is hereand one of the package’s developers is even active in it providing tips and tricks, and how to migrate between Groboto and Modo.
If I were targeting game engines, I suppose I’d be a lot more sensitive about mesh density, and might feel differently.
I view the heaviness of Groboto’s meshes as a similar “tool tax”: Share this post Link to post Share on other sites. By jwiedeAugust 13, in The Lounge. I won’t be selling my Bonzai3D license just yet, but I find modeling in Groboto surprisingly productive, albeit a bit “different” UI environment. There’s been a really interesting thread over at the Luxology forums about Grobotoan interesting 3D package I’m more than willing to pay it in grobotp to have access to Groboto’s tools.
Hehe, just like Beetlejuice, say Groboto enough times and Darrel shows up Posted November 5, Posted September 4, Looks great, thanks for the heads up.
No registered users viewing this page. Darrell can you grobotk any more new developments with how to use these maps in C4D? I believe they’re still working on improving the adaptive meshing to reduce overhead with exported models.
How good is the geometry creation with booleans? Thanks for the links. On the surface, similar to the CSG approach of building up objects using parametric primitives, then combining them using booleans, to get the basic shapes wanted.
When I get some time, I’ll give it a whirl. This topic is now closed to further replies. Sign In Sign Up. Keep in mind, the exported results from CSG packages can be heavy as well. He posts there as groBoto – it’s well worth a look at his posts and those by people using Groboto as a starting form generator for ZB. This is going on the hit list. I believe their underlying engine is a hybrid with both poly and CSG aspects. Grooboto you give some general info about the modeling tools?
It offers some interesting modeling tools for procedural geometry generation, and elaborate boolean tutoril. Agreed, the results can be a bit heavy, but I don’t see them as significantly worse than handing around frozen sub-d surfaces. Posted August 13, What are impressions of V3? It all looks very good — some truly intriquing possibilties discovered by leveraging GroBoto’s mesh structure with Phong Breaks, Selection Options, and Deformation Restrictions in C4D.
Why should they have all the fun?
They’re clearly focusing significant effort on the quality of geometry produced for export, and it shows. I find the results quite acceptable. Looks very interesting and encouraging to see the developer pop up show vroboto enthusiasm for getting stuck in. From the sounds of it, they’re also on the right track w.
I saw an older thread, but it was about an older version and didn’t say much. Will have a play around today However they also offer a procedural engine capable of complex iteration and variation of objects to build more complex objects, and that’s where things can get really fun — their procedural engine kind of reminds me of “fusionThing”, if you’re familiar with that C4D plugin. I find the overall modeling workflow similar to “kit bashing”, if you’re familiar with the term.
Anyone else a Groboto user grobboto It looks interesting grroboto I’ll check it out. Groboto’s evolved quite a bit in V3, and thus far I’ve been very happy with the improvements and changes made.
