Have you been wondering how to generate any 3d models of plants and trees, as well as animate them?
Do you want a plug-in for Autodesk 3ds Max that lets you make broadleaf trees, conifers, palm trees, flowers, many and ivy other vegetational compositions? Then this Exlevel GrowFX 2.0 ​is perfect for you!


Features of GrowFX

  • Creation of realistic trees thanks to a special technology named "Meta mesh".
  • Create climbing and trailing plants thanks to a direction modifier named "Object reaction".
  • Create sheared plants thanks to a direction modifier named "Object slice".
  • Create plants of any shape thanks to splines, using the Spline direction modifier.
  • Animation in GrowFX
  • Use of custom geometric objects
  • Speed of display in the viewport

Here is some of what after using the GrowFX, I would like to give my thoughts on the plug-in:
Exlevel GrowFX is an exceptional 3D modeling software that can be used to create and design plant modeling and animation for Autodesk using 3ds Max.

  • You are able to ability to create 3d model of any plant, be it grass, tree, flower, or any form part of it into an architectural
  • GrowFX can create extremely realistic trees and plants than all the plug-in others ​thanks to a special technology named "Meta mesh". With Meta mesh, it is possible to combine a trunk and branches into a single surface with smooth transitions at the points of contact. Meta mesh can also create tree trunks of any shape.
  • It's a native 3Ds Max plug-in
  • It can react with any Max objects in the scene, this is one of its best features
  • The interface is well thought out and simple to use, node editor is such a huge advantage over the older menu's, it's miles better than the old interface, and now more properly shows all the different possibilities, and visual structure of the tree
  • They listen to users and implement our wishes
  • The support is amazing (as good as Vray) Send them files & they fix/tweak them for you.
  • The ability to create virtually anything, as it is based on a L-system so it's not just for building trees.

  • Very small plant library.
  • Slow meta-mesh creation (Most plants don't need/use meta-mesh so it's not an issue)
  • Not enough tutorials
  • Trying to build plants & trees in any software needs patience.

Who is GrowFX plug-in for?

If you are only looking for a library of plants that you never tweak or change this is probably not a program for you.
If on the other hand, you are looking for a program to take your trees and plants to the next level... then GrowFX is it!
I am now happy that I can conquer any plant species that are thrown at me in my projects, thanks to GrowFX
