Dara includes every plugin Mechanical Color has ever made, all rolled into a single install. The 2017 release includes Bling, Cropper, Flipper, Kelvin, Metermade, NeatFreak, Passify, Render Monkey, Snap, Wheely, and Zen. All updates to those plugins come for free for the entire 2017 calendar year, as well as any new plugins we release during that time.
Dara 2017 includes a total of 13 MODO kits, each with its own magical superpowers. Check it.
Ignition is a collection of beautiful all-quad starter models based on real-world classic vehicles in a variety of styles. Each is 1:1 scale, UV mapped, and ready to use.
Tagger helps you manage materials, parts, and selection sets like a pro. A major workflow enhancement for anyone assigning material tags in MODO, especially with large datasets like CAD imports.
Zen is a popular collection of MODO layouts, palettes, and toolbars to make your workflow faster, more fluid, and generally more awesome.
Passify is makes pass management in MODO easy. It's really several plugins in one: QuickFloor, Ultralight, Toggler, and Manager. It's our biggest, baddest, most powerful plugin to date.
The Cropper plugin for MODO is the missing ‘Crop’ tool for your renders. With Cropper you can zoom in on a small part of a high res render, fire off pixel-for-pixel test renders at the final resolution, and even save those crop regions so you can get back to them on demand. A must-have for pretty much anyone who renders complex scenes in MODO.
Kelvin is a collection of rigs and presets for professional studio rendering in MODO. It is intended to make studio product shots for print, web, and animation as fast and efficient as possible.
RenderMonkey 2 adds easy progressive rendering, batch rendering, rendering arbitrary frame ranges, and combining pass groups to MODO. In short: it saves boat loads of time.
Metermade is a collection of one-click live-updating dimension tools for modeling in MODO. It makes dimensional precision in MODO insanely easy.
‘Snap’ is simple plugin that makes saving backups incredibly easy. Keep your workspace clean with only one ‘current’ file, and save backup ‘snaps’ of your file to a separate folder.
Flipper is easy, bullet-proof multi-axis symmetry for MODO. It makes modeling symmetrical things insanely easy.
Wheely is robust, easy radial symmetry for MODO. It makes modeling round things really, really, ridiculously easy. This is quite possibly my favorite modeling plugin.
Bling is a MODO plugin for adding and removing “matcap” shaders with a customizable one-click menu. Easily add clay, HDR, studio, warm/cool reflection, or zebra stripe shaders for real-time surface evaluation as you work.
