If you can create that, make it work and patent the new subdivision method, you are probably looking at something worth faaar more money than a better Boolean plugin.

There's dozens of 3D softwares that might license such a new, better SubD method, not just C4D.

That made me think of instant meshes http://igl.ethz.ch/projects/instant-meshes/

Sorry if this has already come up before!
You mean like if it was mentioned half way up the page... on the one page thread you posted in?

Since this will be on Page 2, yes, it uses C4D's boolean algorithms but with a different UI approach. As I understand it, they intend to write their own algorithm eventually, possibly offering something that will replace the built-in functions and Cineversity extensions.

Boole Tools: if you've used those tools (or watched the Cineversity tutorials) and you watch the two videos posted in this thread you will have your answer. But generally if it weren't different, what would be the point of making it and trying to sell it? Not trying to be a jerk but I feel you probably could've answered all of your own questions with 2 or 3 minutes worth of reading and video watching.

Sorry you are correct. I posted before looking into it deeper. I did throw in the disclaimer in my post however that it might have already been mentioned.
I dont always have time to go through an entire thread or watch every video posted, but from what I was reading and watching it seemed like this plugin was a set of interface tools sitting on top of the native boolean tools which to my understanding is what boole tools python plugins do as well. I will look into this deeper. thanks.

Ok--got to watch the video. It does look to be very impressive and offers a lot more than cv boole tools.

Great job on the plugin

It is indeed a promising development (no pun intended). Looking forward to trying it out as it matures.
