ParaCloud GEM 2.0 includes new mesh modeling features, including subdivision tools for designing and controlling your surface patterns. The SubD’s can be applied to face selection sets enhancing the control you gain over the mess. 

New rule-based offset methods are introduced in this release enabling the control of the offset section by “proximity” from target points, by height, and by distance from a focus point. 

The new GEM population engine handles up to 10 components. The population assignment is controlled using a color index face map. And the new GEM 2.0 features include a smart population pattern for generating rule-based patterns by proximity from targets, height or random selection.
