Silo 2023 Released

Silo 2023 was just released by Nevercenter. First released all the way back in 2007, Silo is a subdivision surfaces based polygonal modelling tool ideal for creating low polygon count models. Unfortunately Nevercenter ceased Silo development for several years, allowing the project to languish with no new features or bug fixes. In 2021 however, regular updates began again, along side of the release of companion 3D viewer Milo.

With the recent 2022 and 2023 release, Milo has improved quite a bit, including major updates to the underlying core and a switch to use Pixar’s Subdivision surfaces library.

Features of the recent 2023 releases include:

Version 2023.1

  • Added Smooth modifier
