Hi all, I just saw a video on You-Tube demonstrating a new freeware mesh utility
that looks really innovative, easy, useful, and cool.

I haven't downloaded it to try yet, but check out the video at
http://www.meshmixer.com - looks like it would be great for working with Wings3d
and Silo models. Would be fun to try with poser too... not sure how it handles
dense meshes but I'll find out soon enough :)

Cheers,
Rob

Before installing MeshMixer, I recommend that you make a system restore 
point in case your system doesn't like its current MS Visual C++ 
distributable being overwritten with the old 2005 version included in 
the installation.

It didn't seem to break anything on my system, but MeshMixer itself 
consistently crashes after about 30 seconds of use.

Well, that's bad news - I still haven't taken the time to install it, but thanks
for the warning. I hope to try it out tomorrow.
