Heads up for all you Hivewire3d Carrara users.... :whistling:

Eric Winemiller of Digital Carvers Guild is releasing his Carrara plugins as open source..

see his post at Daz Carrara Board here with link to his site

I have purchased several of his plugins over the years so this will be great for Carrara users to add to their armoury :snoopydances:
Thank you! I'm still looking at Carrara like a wild beast in a cage that I'm supposed to tame...but, I'll get there eventually!

Yes I've just found out this moment - that's phenomenal news! I've often been looking at those, but never bit the bullet to pick them up. I can't wait to start playing with those plugins... gives me a reason to dip into Carrara again.

At the same time, it sounds to me like Eric is (at least partially) letting go of the project. Maybe I'm seeing things, but for what it's worth, is it another 3D developer saying "good-bye" to this hobby?
