Product Description

This model comes from about 1998 or 99. It was created with a metaball modeling program called Organica. This program was a lot of fun to use, you place a collection of odd shaped blocks near each other to build up a shape, in much the same way as adding rolls of clay. The fields around these blocks define an implicit surface that smooths out the differences between them. This is a very enjoyable way to build up models, but the resulting mesh is not suitable for animation.
Since it is now possible to fix the topology of an object after creating it perhaps metaball modeling could come back?
