IMO Hexagon 3d 2.5 is one of the most powerful and intuitive modeling tool in existance! IN THEORY. However as the guy above me notes, it crashes way too often whenever you try to use an Ngon. And guess what? Most of those awesome tools that give it that theoretical crown of power all involve the use of Ngons.
The displacement, normals, diffuse painting, simply doesnt work at all for me. If it did, it would be such major pwnage.
BTW about 3 years ago Hexagon was offered for $1 - full version. That’s when I bought my copy lolzzz
my advice is that if they don’t improve it all that $37 would be better spent elsewhere. However if they do improve it and you get that update for free and the crashes are fixed you just scored big time there buddy congrats.
btw the License fee or whatever I paid back then, has given me the right to subsequent updates so I have 2.5+ on my computer right now. Cant say I ever use it though
