Exlevel GrowFX V1.5.0 Sp1 For 3DsMAX 2008 - 2011 32bit

Exlevel GrowFX V1.5.0 Sp1 For 3DsMAX 2008 - 2011 32bit

Exlevel GrowFX is a plug-in for Autodesk 3ds Max that allows the user to create realistic and animated plants and trees. It has many features and options that make it a powerful and flexible tool for 3D modeling and animation. In this article, we will review some of the main features and improvements of Exlevel GrowFX V1.5.0 Sp1, which is compatible with 3ds Max versions from 2008 to 2011 in both 32bit and 64bit architectures.

Meta mesh

The most important improvement to GrowFX in version 1.5.0 Sp1 is Meta mesh, a new mesh builder for creating smooth transitions between trunks and branches. This builder makes it possible to create highly realistic plant and tree models that can be used in video games, design projects and artwork . Meta mesh uses a metaball algorithm to merge the meshes of different branches into a single smooth surface, avoiding sharp edges and seams. The user can control the parameters of Meta mesh, such as the radius of influence, the strength of blending, the number of segments and the smoothing level.


UVW Mapping

Another enhancement in GrowFX V1.5.0 Sp1 is the ability to influence all parameters of UVW Mapping for the Cylinder mesh . The Cylinder mesh is one of the basic mesh builders in GrowFX, which creates cylindrical segments along the paths of branches. The user can now adjust the UVW coordinates of the Cylinder mesh, such as the U and V tile, the U and V offset, the U rotation and the V flip. This allows the user to apply different textures to different parts of the plant model, such as bark, leaves, flowers, etc.

Optimize Steps

GrowFX V1.5.0 Sp1 also introduces a new direction modifier called Optimize Steps . This modifier reduces the number of steps (segments) along the paths of branches, while preserving their shape and direction. This results in more optimized models with less polygons and vertices, which can improve the performance and rendering speed of 3ds Max. The user can set the threshold angle for optimizing steps, as well as exclude some paths from optimization.

Editable Spline

Another useful feature in GrowFX V1.5.0 Sp1 is the conversion of GrowFX objects to Editable Spline . This feature allows the user to convert the paths of branches into editable splines, which can then be modified using standard tools in 3ds Max. This can be useful for creating custom shapes or adding details to the plant model. The user can choose which paths to convert, as well as preserve or delete the original GrowFX object.


Exlevel GrowFX V1.5.0 Sp1 is a significant upgrade of the plant modeling and animation system for Autodesk 3ds Max. It offers new features and improvements that enhance the realism, flexibility and optimization of plant models. It is compatible with 3ds Max versions from 2008 to 2011 in both 32bit and 64bit architectures. It is available for $325 USD for a single-user license through the Exlevel online store , and Exlevel resellers worldwide. Until February 1, 2011, GrowFX can be purchased with a special holiday discount, only for $260 USD.
