New meshing and Bullet Physics plugins for 3DS Max announced

According to a thread on CGTalk, MagicPictures Software will soon release two new commercial plugins – a Mesher called AQ Mesher, and a Bullet Physics based multibody simulator called AQ Bullet.

AqMesher is an OpenVDB based meshing plugin that’s compatible with particles, objects, and of course VDB objects. According to the developers it provides optimised access to many OpenVDB functions such as Meshing, levelset filter, fracture and levelset sphere functions for rigid body simulation. Features include:

Objects / particles / PRT files / VDB files to LevelSet

Adaptive Meshing to create tri or quad meshes

Velocity / Vertex Color channel creation

LevelSet Filter

Meshing area clipping

Levelset Fracture

Levelset to Sphere/Bullet Sphere(need Aq Bullet Plugin)

VDB export

The second plugin, AqBullet, is a multi-body physics simulator that can simulate rigid bodies, soft bodies, rope and constraints. Features include:

Rigid Body simulation (Dynamic / Static / Kinetic)

Soft Body / Cloth simulation

Rope Simulation

Constraint functions (P2P, Hinge, Slider, ConeTwist, 6DOF, Softbody Anchor, Rope Anchor)

Bullet Primitives Object(Box, Cone, Sphere, Capsule, Cylinder)

Bullet Compound Object for Concave / Complex object

Easy to Use / Easy to Control

At time of press, no details about prices or an expected released date have been announced. Find out more, including video demos, on MagicPictures Software’s website (also already available is a free OpenSubdiv’s modifier that promises to be more responsive than the standard Max modifier.
