Question Will Silo2 have magnets and proper extrude along curve?


once again two questions that keep me occupied as they are related to basic modelling functions.

1. Of course one can do without proper magnet functions. Still they are present in most 3D packages, even low cost ones (A:M) and they tend to make modelling more comfortable.

2. Secondly I would like to address "extrude along curve" again as I consider this to be a basic feature. IN C4D I use it via plugin, within MAYA (PLE 6) and XSI Foundation it is well integrated and a joy to use. Although being part of Silo's toolset it can only be applied to single polys which does not really make sense as you won't want to cut off a poly or to draw it, extrude it along curve and then recombine it with the original mesh. So, in a nutshell, one should be able to draw a curve, snap it to a selected face of any mesh, choose the function and be done with it.

Is there any hope for an implementation of these functions in SILO 2?

Kind regards

The soft selection/magnet implementation is indeed one of the things be reworked for 2.0 (we've been getting many good ideas from our users and beta testers), and I'd bet the extrude functionality you mention will make it in as well.

Hello jamchild,

thanks for the reply. This certainly is good news and will definitely enhance the already impressive polymodelling toolset of SILO.

Kind regards

Great news!! new the "path extrusion object" update will be mine most important one on the modeling side!!!
