BRIX by Materialwerk
Materialwerk has just released BRIX, a new tool for 3ds Max & Maya that offers a solution to working with tiled materials (planks, bricks, tiles, mosaics, stone cladding and more). Bertrand Benoit posted a very informative article about his first steps with BRIX you really should take a look at. You can also see some of Bertrand’s tests below.
Materialwerk published the BRIX lite version for download at their website. They have also added a Video Tutorial Page. I’ve embedded them inside the post below too.
