Bionatics ships EASYnat with Discreet’s 3ds max 6

Bionatics has announced the signing of a partnership with Discreet to bundle its EASYnat software with 3ds max 6. As part of the deal, all 3ds max 6 will be integrated with the EASYnat growth engine, shipped with a basic library of four plants. The plant library can then be increased through the Bionatics Website.

The partnership signed between Bionatics and Discreet on the 3ds max 6 product, shows a common desire to propose to architects and the visualization community accessible tools for modeling and simulation, from a technological perspective and adaptable to their production and visualization constraints, said Stéphane Gourgout, co-founder and commercial director at Biontics. Our partnership with Discreet is a real plus for our EASYnat product because it allows us access to the largest community user base in the 3D industry.

EASYnat is the 3D plant generator dedicated to the AEC market.
