Arion for 3ds Max 2.7

With Arion for 3ds Max 2.7, it is no longer required to export the scene data to a file, to use a stand-alone renderer, or to go back to the host app to make changes. Arion for 3ds Max 2.7 exists inside 3ds Max, and renders right into the 3ds Max framebuffer. Just by hitting the render button, Arion for 3ds Max 2.7 will turn the scene into a physically-based digital photography. Read more here.

RhinoRing 1.7 is a new Rhino plug-in that supports jewelers and jewelry designers in their day-to-day work. It improves the workflow with custom windows and menus.
