Project Geppetto for 3ds Max 2013 / 3ds Max Design 2013 Now Available

BIM -It is Alive in the Lab
Reanimator Re-animator is a 1985 movie that I really enjoyed. The story features a dedicated student at a medical college and his girlfriend who become involved in bizarre experiments centering around the re-animation of dead tissue when an odd new student arrives on campus. I watched it by renting a VHS tape from a local video store! Wow - those days are gone.

Project Geppetto is our free technology preview for easily adding realistic crowds to 3ds Max scenes. Project Geppetto helps bring your designs to life. Shaan Hurley had some real fun with this one when he "extended" its capabilities to create crowds of Autodesk Reality Capture VP Brian Mathews (see Shaan's blog article).

The other day I got an update from the Project Geppetto team. In turn I updated the Autodesk Labs site.
