Shut up and take my money!

Welcome to the pixelfondue store links.  We find that it's helpful to 3D Artists and content producers alike if we can collect plug-ins, asset packs and kits all in one place.  pixelfondue is not selling any of these items, we are merely providing links to the seller's page (usually gumroad or vimeo).  Any questions related to buying these products or support should be directed to the sellers (not pixelfondue....please....not pixelfondue....we're just providing links here, folks).  If you have a plug-in, asset pack or kit that you would like us to link to, please send an email to contact@pixelfondue.com with Pixel Fondue Store as the subject.

The Pushing Points MOP Booleans Kit is a MODO 11 KIT designed to remove the challenges of working with complex boolean operations and introduces a non-destructive workflow that makes creating highly detailed meshes a trivial task.

Polygons, MODO Subdivs and Catmul-Clarke SubDs with Edge weights can all be used together in a single mesh allowing you to blend multiple polygon types.

Based on Tor Frick's modeling workflow, this kit opens up a new world of creative possibilities for artists and designers. By adding MOP Booleans to your workflow, you will be able to take advantage of MODO's new Mesh Op modeling operations that will let you interactively blend, add and subtract mesh items to create models faster and more efficiently than ever before.

Dara includes every plugin Mechanical Color has ever made, all rolled into a single install. The 2017 release includes Bling, Cropper, Flipper, Ignition, Kelvin, Metermade, NeatFreak, Passify, Render Monkey, Replay, Snap, Tagger, Wheely, and Zen.

Auto Character Setup (ACS) 2 is a production-ready, automatic rigging solution for bipedal characters. It offers a flexible, general-purpose biped rig and a set of tools to streamline entire rigging and animation processes. ACS features include fast rig adjustment to a mesh via guide mode, poses and actions library, optimized re-targeting workflow, corrective morphs and proxy mode for faster playback. Final animation can be exported into external applications such as Unity or Unreal Engine.


Asset Packs

This Add On pack for the Polystein Kit 11.0 is a large assortment of 100 hard surface meshes all in Catmull-Clark Subdivisions designed to help add detail or flesh out a base model quickly and easily. From antennas to vents to tubing and more!

The Bottle Kit for MODO is a collection of 40 high-quality, all quad, subdivision surface assets ready to be dropped into your scene.  If you're looking for some set dressing for your architectural visualization renders, props for your characters, or simply a subject to practice lighting and surfacing with, this kit includes bottles ideal for most any setting.

This hardsurface kit contains 100 models that were used in the creation of my latest Mech projects.

All models are weighted subD geometry, and available as both Modo preset files (lxl) and Alembic, FBX, and frozen OBJ files for import to other 3D applications. 41 of the presets are set up to work with the polystein kit, but also work fine as regular presets.

The pack contains: 59 regular presets, 41 polystein presets.  All in the following formats: LXL, FBX, Alembic, OBJ and as 3 sets of IMM brushes for Zbrush.

Products is a collection of over 160 materials providing a range of detailed and physically accurate shaders to cover many different needs. With a focus on product renders the materials in this collection are general purpose materials representing the clean, unblemished materials required for visualisation work.

Stoneware - Caps and Tubes Kit: A collection of over 80 kitbash parts for use with the Polystein for Modo kit.

This is a collection of presets to use with the Polystein Kit for Modo. They can also work as simple presets without it. They're all shaded with PBR procedural materials.
Included in this pack:
- A full piping network
- Easy customizable set-up of tubes
- High-quality props
- 14 materials

Kelvin is a collection of rigs and presets for professional studio rendering in MODO. It is intended to make studio product shots for print, web, and animation as fast and efficient as possible.

Now available for 3rd party renderers inside MODO, VizPack: Products is a collection of over 160 materials providing a range of detailed and physically accurate shaders to cover many different needs. With a focus on product renders the materials in this collection are general purpose materials representing the clean, unblemished materials required for visualization work.

This collection includes 57 presets to help quickly build out a car. Included in the kit are antennas, door handles (with and without keyholes), fog-light, headlights, hood air intakes, side brake intakes, mirrors, rims spoilers, wheels, and a cup holder. Parts are designed to relative scale so often best to use the Polystein “no scale” option when inserting when using a to scale base model.

The Pushing Points Quad-Poly Family Pack consists of four meshes designed to be a blank canvas when working with the PolyStein Kit for MODO. The collection is made up of base male, female, kid and hero mesh presets that are ready to be detailed with the assets that ship with the Polystein kit. 

  While these meshes were designed with the Polystein kit in mind, they are not restricted to artists using the kit. These quad-polygon meshes can be great starter meshes when modeling with traditional polygonal techniques and/or sculpting.

Stoneware - Vents and Valves Kit: A collection of 45 assorted vales vents and dials asset kitbash parts for use with the Polystein for Modo kit.  

This collection includes 18 presets of brand emblem shape concepts.  Each mesh is scaled to 4 inches on the x-axis for managing expectations when preset "dropping" and are designed to be forgiving when dropping on curved surfaces.  In addition to the scale and design, the meshes are UV'd for easy application of your own customer LOGO or even for direct import into your favorite game engine.  The meshes are preconfigured with a chrome base and some of them have predefined materials for custom texture maps/logos.  This collection provides a variety of shapes that stand alone or can even be used together to create more complex branding emblems.  All presets are watertight and quad-only.

This add on pack has 50 different Vent types...50 different panel types....and not just in one level of detail but 3! THREE levels of detail!!! Lo, Medium & Hi which means in reality it's a whopping 300 model presets for all of your nurnification needs!!!! All are polygonal meshes with DROP action for use with Polystein & MODO!!

Stoneware - Hatches Collection: A kit of 32 assorted hatches and porthole asset kitbash parts for use with the Polystein for Modo kit.  

A collection of high-res meshes of house-hold items for interior visualizations.  Formats: MODO (lxo, lxl - MODO presets ) and .obj for other packages. 

Shading done with Octane for MODO.

Training

Richard Yot's highly regarded MODO tutorials covering Texturing, Shading, UV Mapping, Rendering and more.  Richard's videos are some of the most popular and comprehensive tutorials made for MODO.

These tutorials were designed with industrial designers in mind. We are going to learn how to bring movement and life to your product designs so you can demonstrate how your ideas work, how they solve problems, and all while looking good at the same time.

Each project-based exercise in this course will cover the basics of rigging and animation in Modo with each tutorial building upon the last.

In this bundle, you get all the content from the two transport tutorials, in which I take this transport vehicle from the design stage, all the way to high-poly renders, and then into Unreal Engine 4 and Marmoset viewer.

I go through the blockout stages, assembling a kitbashing set, modelling the entire vehicle and creating decals and procedural materials for the highpoly renders, before creating the lowpoly, unwrapping it and bringing it into unreal and marmoset.

This tutorial is for intermediate users of MODO, it does assume that you have some knowledge of how to find your way around MODO and its tools.

Mike James “Modeling with MODO” series includes seven volumes, covering research, extrapolation of data from poor documentation, modeling, texturing, rigging, rendering, and animation. While the subjects are mostly aviation-related, the techniques shown in these tutorials can of course be applied to any subject.

Each tutorial is provided in an HTML “web site” format, so that reference articles can be included along with the video, and so they can be accessed as references later, in any order you like. These can be purchased individually, or via package deals that save you some money, when purchasing more than one at a time.
