Ashlar Argon (8003) Product Details

Argon v8.0
History-free precision modeling.

Argon offers entry-level 3D modeling without the commitment of high-end professional packages. It contains the same solid and surface modeling, rendering engine and animation tools found in Cobalt and Xenon, but without the high-end mechanical design and extreme productivity features you may not need—yet. For both Macintosh and Windows, Argon lets you model and render with such a straightforward interface that you’ll forget you’re using a computer. Intended for those needing precision 3D modeling without cumbersome parametric history,
