Meshwork

2.0.1
11 May 2003

Create and edit 3D mesh models.

Overview

Meshwork is a 3D modeling app designed especially for the production of compact, efficient triangular meshes. Meshwork models are well suited for use in games, on the web, and in other applications where performance matters.

What's new in Meshwork

Version 2.0.1 adds the following:
  • fixed a problem that caused Meshwork to require Quesa/QD3D to launch (note: these are still highly recommended because without them some features, such as 3D Preview, will not work -- get Quesa at http://www.quesa.org)

I tryed Milkshape on a PC and in 3 hours I did a puppet with skeleton, textures and a small walk animation, and I never used a 3 program. why on mac there's not something like milkshape? this meswork does not satisfy me.

Meshwork is a formerly excellent program that has really languished in the past few years, and there are a lot of problems that showed up in the move to OS X that still haven't been addressed. The lack of undo support is most frustrating. It is virtually impossible to do any significant modeling without needing to undo something at least once. I used this program in the OS 9 days, and undo worked fine. It baffles me that the author could consider the OS X version to be complete without a working undo. Speed, as well as the dependence on Quesa, are also rather frustrating. Quesa still lacks features from the old QuickDraw 3D, and generally the quality of 3D previews in Meshwork is pretty poor. That said, the only other comparable program in the Mac market is Wings 3D, and Meshwork has some advantages over Wings, especially for new users. Meshwork, unlike Wings, uses a standard Mac interface, as opposed to Wings' windows-inside-windows system, which makes it much less intimidating to long-time mac users. Meshwork also provides a click-and-drag interface, similar to that of a 2-D drawing program. It can be used easily with a one-button mouse, without the need to memorize context menus or keyboard commands. Finally, Meshwork allows users to fairly easily texture models. It isn't necessarily as easy as it could be, but Meshwork is flat-out the the simplest 3D program to offer texture support. In conclusion, for devoted Mac users who are new to 3D modeling, Meshwork is still a decent compromise. For the more experienced modeler, or for the technically-minded user, there are better options.

This is seriously in need of an update. The program makes no use of hardware acceleration and was clearly inefficiently implemented; - redraw slows to a crawl once you've added a few hundred polys. - The 3D rendered-preview uses some obsolete rendering technology (QD3D); - Undo doesn't work and the orthographic view is confusing. - There are numerous bugs and clitche; front facing polys become inexorably flipped leaving holes in models and the faces are not always shaded correctly due to the flakey HSR (hidden surface removal). - The zoom feature is badly done. - $30 for this? This is the only program to fill this niche on the Mac; when is someone going to come up with a better, modern alternative with Cocoa and OpenGL?
