      Happy New Year. What‘s the news? Believe it or not, I’m starting to get quite tired of the delay.

    2. Uformia Creator on September 19, 2017

      Hi again Maik - we are progressing on the work with the new visualization - nothing to share just yet. Our team has been focused on some other issues, which impacted the time spent on these new techniques. As soon as there is something more definitive, we will be sure to report it here on Kickstarter. Appreciate you checking in!

      Hello again, summer is almost over and still no news, teaser screenshots, public betas... Still working on the new visualisation technique?

    4. Uformia Creator on May 1, 2017

      Hello Maik,

      Happy belated Easter to you as well, and happy spring! Apologies for the delay in getting back to you - I was hoping to be able to share good news or at least screenshots before the new release today, but unfortunately the new visualization technique is not quite ready for prime time. It is close, however in QA on occasion an interference pattern was created over open holes. Once it looks like this is resolved, we'll release screenshots to provide a little teaser of what is to come. This will be followed by a new beta release too all MeshUP backers with this feature integrated. Once our public beta gives us the thumbs up, we will be ready to initiate the release candidate process for MeshUP.

      Look forward to being back in touch soon!

      Hello Uformia,

      How is the integration of the new pipeline going? It's been a few months now.

      Oh, and happy late Easter ;-)

      Kind regards,

    6. Uformia Creator on January 25, 2017

      Hi Maik - Happy New Year!

      So sorry your message slipped between the cracks - thanks for reaching out.

      Congrats on your pending printer, which should be a perfect companion for MeshUP. Even though MeshUP is technically in beta, it is a fully functional product. We call it beta only because we have not added microstructures yet, the last feature to add. In order to add microstructures (as mentioned in previous posts), we had to create a new visualization pipeline, which we are still in the process of integrating. In fact we are all really excited about it.

      We will be in touch to all MeshUP supporters and customers once we are sure the solution works in all our QA cases. In the meantime, I hope that MeshUP can help you enjoy your new printer.

      Hello Uformia team,

      Happy New Year, good health and good fortune to all of you!

      It seems my next 3D printer (Tiko, also from Kickstarter) is finally going to arrive in the coming months, which reminded me to send you a friendly ping again.

      How is it going? Any closer to being able to give an ETA for the finished MeshUp?


    8. Uformia Creator on June 1, 2016

      Hi Maik,

      The to-do list for the final release looks simple: finish visualization, then add microstructures. However, the visualization issue has been a difficult one to solve. Once the new rendering pipeline is complete, then the road is paved to add microstructures, and then on to the full release. Unfortunately we do not have an ETA.

      Given the full release has taken much longer than anticipated, we worked hard to polish all the other features so that the current version of MeshUP today is a fully functional beta, which I hope you are finding useful. If you are having any specific issues, or need help with any workflows, let us know by clicking on the bug icon in MeshUP, or email

      Thanks for the ping.

      Hello Uformia team,

      I'm aware beta versions are still rolling out, but do you have an estimate when the final version will be ready? Maybe you could share your to-do list?

      Thank you, kind regards,

    10. Uformia Creator on September 7, 2015

      Hi - we have been rolling out updates to the beta regularly. I can see you have been sent the updates, but maybe gmail is considering them as spam? Check your spam folder for an email from, if you don't have anything, email us at, and we can communicate directly to get you the latest copy!

      Hi, just looking for an update (last update I could find below was March 21, it is 5 months since then). Excited to start playing... Thanks!

    12. Uformia Creator on March 21, 2015

      We started rolling out MeshUP beta now to all our Kickstarter supporters, in stages. I will bump your name up on the list - you should receive an email shortly with your download link. Even if you don't have time to share feedback, feel free to use our bug reporter button in the application to quickly report any issues.

      Might as well I guess? I'm getting a bit sick of my existing Max>Mudbox>Max workflow for cleaning and retopologizing meshes. Would be interesting to have a crack, though I'm failry time poor for feedback and in-depth evaluation.

    14. Uformia Creator on February 26, 2015

      We will start rolling out to more of our Kickstarter users within the next few days, however if you are anxious to start right away, I can put you on the external beta testers list and get you a copy immediately. Ideally our beta testers are ones who are willing to test MeshUP in their own real world scenarios to provide us with feedback and report any bugs they might find. Should I add you to the external beta list?

      We're almost through January -- any updates?

    18. Uformia Creator on December 31, 2014

      A few of us on the team have been working through the holiday this year, burning the midnight oil so we can make an announcement in January to all our MeshUP backers. It is probably obvious what that is, however I won't say it yet so as not to jinx it. :) Happy New Year!

      Hi Maik - thanks for reaching out and please excuse the gap in our updates. I know everyone is anxious to move beyond the preview builds of MeshUP and get a working copy, so I was holding back as I want to report that our next feature we are releasing is the ability to Save.

      The good news is the Save feature looks ready to release. An update is forthcoming as is a new build with Save.

      Dear MeshUp team, any news on your progress? Thank you, -Maik

    26. Uformia Creator on May 7, 2014

      Yes, there is an early version of the software we can give you - do you prefer a Windows or Mac version (or both)?

      This early version does not yet have the ability to open your own files, or save - but that is the very next feature we are working on. I'll be posting an update to this effect later this week.

    27. polyoptics on May 6, 2014

      I see there is an early version of the software that we can download. Can I load my own models into that version?

    28. Uformia Creator on August 30, 2013

      We are course late in our delivery of MeshUP and as explained we had several unexpected hurdles, including a serious technical issue (that after several months we have thankfully overcome). Rest assured that all of our resources are focused on the delivery of MeshUP ASAP. The Fuel3D campaign has thankfully provided us with additional resource to make that happen. The additional features that Uformia will develop for Fuel3D are not part of our current development and certainly will not be until after MeshUP is shipping. Our original Kickstarter supporters are Uformia's number one priority.

      The Fuel3D campaign is of course not our campaign and thus are not able to any special deals on their scanner. The collaboration with Fuel3D is not to ask our existing supports for "more" but to support and develop a larger community of MeshUP users and applications (of course there is opportunity for our users to grab there own pre-order of the Fuel3D). This is just the beginning for us we expect a lot more interesting uses of MeshUP - remember we are planning on releasing major parts of the interface as open source and we look forward to it extension.

    29. RPB on August 29, 2013

      All well and good saying we are getting more except that we haven't gotten the first product that we backed yet.
      It really seems that taking on this extra task has to cut into the amount of time spent giving us what we all initially backed.
      Deliver MeshUp first before promising "MORE" if we only spend 7 times "MORE"!
      If you are really serious about delivering MeasUp combined with Fuel3D and expecting MeshUp backers to buy into it offer us something. Offer us more, offer Fuel3D to MeshUp backers at some ridiculously low price.

    30. Uformia Creator on August 8, 2013

      Hi Adrian - thanks for the question. I am going to post an update today to this effect, but the answer is yes, you will have access to the Fuel3D version of MeshUP, if that stretch goal is achieved.

      Anyone who has either purchased the bundle from the Fuel3D campaign or who has separately pre-ordered MeshUP and also backed the Fuel3D scanner will have access to the special version of MeshUP made specifically for Fuel3D promised in the stretch goal (if the stretch goal is achieved).

      Also you get the additional benefit of effectively resetting your one year of upgrades once Fuel3D is launched. So for example if MeshUP was ready today for the full retail release, then you get free updates until 8/8/2014. Whenever Fuel3D is released, we will automatically add on another year of updates for your version of MeshUP. A nice bonus for all MeshUP backers who also backed Fuel3D!

      adrian on August 7, 2013

      I am backing Fuel 3D, but I backed your first! Will you be including these new features in the package for us? Or they will only be for the backers at fuel3d that also pledge your software???

    32. Uformia Creator on August 5, 2013

      Hello RPB,

      Thanks for the fair comment. MeshUP is indeed entering the "Pretty late" category:

      As described in the updates we hit a few major issues that have slowed us down and taken a lot more resources than planned. We more than anyone one want to get a early copy of MeshUP into your and every supporters hands but we have to make sure first that it offers solid and simple functionality (see update 15). Fear not MeshUP is close and the partnership with Fuel3D is only aiding our efforts.

      We have team up with Fuel3D due to the unique nature of our system and the matching value it can provide their similarly unique technology. This is in fact a very positive development for MeshUP and has provided some additional resources to the project. We are really excited to be offering these two tools together.

    33. RPB on August 5, 2013

      How are you teaming with a scanner offering this product that we haven't even received yet?

    34. Martin Galese on July 23, 2013

      Just backed the project. Looks like great work! Just one question about the "delivery": if I want any physical materials delivered to a different address than my amazon billing address, how do I go about setting that up?

    45. Uformia Creator on November 10, 2012

      Hi Martin,

      We are very interested to work with FormLabs. We are planning on as tight an integration with the FormLabs printer as they allow. But keep in mind of course as a stand alone product, our software will be useful for any 3D printer.

      Thanks for your support!

      All the best,

      Hello Florian,

      Thanks for the post. I have just noticed your discussion at Google+. We already export direct slices (as vectors and image stacks) at part of API and it is a feature included in Symvol for Rhino which is available now to Rhino 3D users. We are also in the first stages of discussion about direct fabrication (including G-code) with Ultimaker which we started at the 3D Printshow

      Regarding the spammer, Onna - I hope we have stopped Onna's well meaning but unhelpful postings. For a more full response please check our reply on Ultimaker:…

      Hope that clears up any questions and happy to answer any more you may have.

      Turlif, CTO , Uformia

    48. Florian Horsch on October 31, 2012

      What are the exact plans regarding FDM printer support? Or more precisely the Ultimaker...

      Are you really planning to come up with a slicing mechanism?

      Thanks :)

    49. Uformia Creator on October 29, 2012

      By solid formats I will assume you do not mean solid or manifold meshes but NURBS and the like. As you may know meshes can be converted to NURBS however the issue is that they are not very useful conversions without input from the designer as to design intent, surface division, etc. Likewise conversion from real volumes has the same problem. We are looking at making a converter that would be easier than converting from meshes (but it would still require detailed interaction from the designer). This is not planed for the current version of MeshUp.

      Of course you can always convert your solids to meshes and combine them in MeshUp. MeshUp will let you treat meshes as real volumes (better than solids) and "mashing stuff together" will *never* produce a bad, broken or non-manifold model. Additionally, MeshUp is a non-destructive modeler, so you can dynamically change any part of your model at any time.

      Ian Johnson on October 28, 2012

      Since Meshup is creating volumes from meshes, would it be possible for it to export solid formats for use in CAD? That would be good for reverse engineering, or using scans as a starting point for CAD. I would love to be able to take an STL from Thingiverse and make some changes in a solid modeler rather than a mesh modeler.

      On the other hand I can see how Meshup would let me treat a mesh modeler like a solid modeler by just mashing stuff together and not caring about the intersections.
