Commented on this over on the Modo forums as well, its a fairly new topic over there.
The simplicity is incredibly nice, it poses an interesting contrast between mesh fusion and meta mesh. Not sure how destructive the move is though, I know with Mesh Fusion its non destructive until finalization…meaning multiple parts can be applied in a dynamic state. Still though, from a user perspective it looks simple and easy to use…and thats in many ways far more important.
As for LW… LW lost some of its key players, they went on to make modo. In some ways there is some overlap in approach and design, in other ways, Modo is the evolution from what LW didnt do so well on. Its curious to see if LW can come back in a significant way. This and LWCAD certainly helps their case… not to mention they lowered their price to be under $1K, which means LW is getting either desperate or very competitive. I look forward to the competition. Users win out in the end.
