MakerBot is partnering with The Foundry on the launch of MODO 801, the latest edition of the popular 3D modeling, animation, visual effects, and rendering software package. All MODO customers will get a 10 percent discount on a purchase of a MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer, MakerBot Replicator Z18 3D Printer, or MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer through June 25, 2014. This deal applies to new and existing MODO customers, each of whom will receive an individual coupon code through their MODO user ID. “Using our solutions, artists have the ability to effortlessly blend, add, and subtract objects, then export to a watertight mesh, a process that we believe revolutionizes 3D modeling and offers infinite creative possibilities for MakerBot 3D Printer users,” said Christopher Kenessey, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer with The Foundry. “In our opinion, MakerBot shares our passion for creating accessible products without sacrificing final quality results.” Here at MakerBot, we’re pretty excited, too. The Foundry’s software suite, including MODO, powers visual effects for films like “Flight,” “The Monuments Men,” and “Star Trek: Into Darkness,” and TV shows like “Cosmos.” It’s a giant in the entertainment industry. MODO 801 is poised to become a powerful companion to the MakerBot 3D Ecosystem, and offers a range of new features that make it easier than ever to create digital models that are watertight and ready to 3D print. MODO 801 also provides a streamlined way of cleaning and modifying models derived from objects scanned on the MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner. We can’t wait to see the amazing 3D creations MODO users bring to life using their new MakerBot Desktop 3D Printers!
