Today, Maxon announced the inclusion of Forger with all Maxon One subscriptions with the release of Forger 1.8, an update to the company’s professional-level, 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. Maxon One subscribers can simply login to their MyMaxon account for access to Forger included with their subscription. This latest version also features a seamless workflow with Cinema 4D - objects can be imported into C4D to be brought to life, and 3D models in development can be moved back and forth between Cinema 4D and Forger to facilitate a seamless, iterative workflow.
Forger is an elegant and engaging first step into 3D sculpting without the intimidating complexity of typical desktop sculpting apps. Forger features an intuitive multitouch interface, full support for Apple Pencil, and a comprehensive collection of sculpting brushes and tools. Powerful remeshing algorithms as well as masking and layering capabilities make concept- and production-level sculpting on a mobile device a reality.
Forger liberates professional 3D modelers and sculptors from their desktop which enables the artistic freedom of working on a digital sketch pad on the go. For casual users or aspiring new artists, the free version removes the commitment barrier of having to pay for a professional app and allows them to take their first strokes into the world of 3D sculpting and modeling. When artists are ready to remove the limit of three active files or make use of extensive export capability, it's easy to subscribe on a monthly or annual basis.
Users of the previous version of Forger (now Forger Classic) are entitled to a free one-year subscription to the new Forger. This offer is exclusive to Forger Classic users. Note: owners of Forger Classic can still keep their current license – it will not expire even if they take advantage of the free-year offer.
Availability and Compatibility:
- Forger is included as part of the Maxon One subscription or a standalone subscription can be purchased independently. Forger can be downloaded immediately from the Apple App Store.
- Forger integration with Cinema 4D requires Cinema 4D Release 25.015 or later.
- For Maxon One subscribers: Forger can be used simultaneously on the iPad while your other products are activated. Forger will work concurrently with your desktop apps.
