We are looking for input in this relatively new field of voxel modeling, so please download and test your imagination with voxels!
A procedural modeler, Acropora combines volumetric modifiers with multi-octave 3D noise sampling to generate detailed surfaces in far less time than conventional surface modeling software. Acropora adopts a less deterministic approach to generating complex, organic shapes by applying sequences of modifiers on large voxelized meshes. The effect is to create an endless, seamless expanse of surface that undulates and changes in a natural way. The resulting meshes can contain caves, ridges, overhangs and other natural features that are not possible with height maps.
Just some of the features available:
A variety of base shapes including sphere, plane, cylinder, torus and others.
Compound shapes (heightmaps, pillars, caves, weaves)
Voxelisation of user imported models (.3DS, .FBX, COLLADA, .OBJ)
Mesh export to .3DS, .FBX, COLLADA, .OBJ
User-specified volume block and voxel dimensions.
Over 40+ volume modifiers
Automatic generation of up to 15 octaves of noise (user-programmable settings include orientation, strength, quality, frequency, phase, and range of influence)
Extensive voxel and noise editing tools
Multiple LOD support
Seamless joining of adjacent meshes
Mesh decimation, smoothing and tesselation.
Mesh filtering and vertex blending tools
FX effect file support and multitexturing
Multithreaded CPU support and GPU acceleration (on supported cards)
