Maxon One Subscription Includes Forger For Free

Maxon, a German producer of software for content creators working in 2D and 3D design, motion graphics, visual effects and visualization, has bundled in Forger with its Maxon One subscriptions to enable digital 3D sculpting application for the iPad.

New licensing options include a free version that brings sculpting to all iPad users, and a subscription version that can be purchased independently from the Apple App Store.

This latest version also includes a seamless workflow with Cinema 4D, enabling objects imported into C4D to be brought to life. Also, 3D models in development can be moved back and forth between Cinema 4D and Forger to facilitate a seamless, iterative workflow, according to Maxon.

Forger is pitched as a relatively straightforward first step into 3D sculpting without the intimidating complexity of typical desktop sculpting apps. It has an intuitive multitouch interface, full support for Apple Pencil, and a collection of sculpting brushes and tools. It includes remeshing algorithms, as well as masking and layering capabilities, to make concept and production-level sculpting on a mobile device possible.

Forger was designed to liberate professional 3D modelers and sculptors from their desktop, giving them the artistic freedom of working on a digital sketch pad on the go. For casual users or aspiring artists, the free version removes the commitment of paying for a professional app and allows them to take their first strokes into the world of 3D sculpting and modeling free of charge. Then when the artists are ready to move beyond the constraint of three active files, or require more extensive export capability, they can upgrade to a subscription package billed on a monthly or annual basis.

Unlike the previous version of Forger, now called Forger Classic, new Forger allows the first year’s subscription free.
