About

Glise is a fast, easy and extensible subdivision surfaces 3D modeler featuring a highly optimized, multithreaded C++ core, a minimalist GPU-driven user interface, parallel Ambient Occlusion rendering and a complete set of Python API.

With Glise you get a comprehensive set of modeling tools usually found in professional packages, the ability to intuitively shape subdivision surfaces using an awesome tweak mode with an accurate soft selection, native topological symmetry, and a super simple sketch reference setup.

Glise is already available for Windows, Linux and the Raspberry Pi. An Apple Mac port is part of our goals.

What have we done so far

Development started back in 2009, but the first release was ready only in 2012. We've come a long way from there, developing 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.

Tools and plugins have been added, docs have been written, then the website got more refined, we began having a presence on social media, writing articles, and the like. We take care of everything we can.

What are our goals

The current release is 1.7.1, although 1.7.2 is due by the end of March.

Our main goal is to deliver our next major release, version 1.8, by the end of August, and later port Glise to the Apple Mac.

Why we need help

Since 2012, the company has been entirely funded by us, with our own savings and a few loans.

We truly believe Glise is becoming better and better every month, but servers need to be run, hardware needs to be updated, licenses expire and the company itself brings its own costs.

We are pledging for the minimum we need to keep the development active and reach our 1.8 milestone.

Risks and challenges

Considering we are already 8 years into development, we are pretty confident we won't encounter any major challenge that we can't overcome.

Having said that, any complex project has its own hidden downsides. We believe our deadline to be absolutely feasible, and we are 100% committed to deliver.
