Hello MM forumites, it is with great sadness that I must tell you that I am no longer an employee of Autodesk. Because of this, I am also no longer able to continue developing Meshmixer.
I left Meshmixer in capable hands, of people who see it's value and do not want it to disappear. I don't know exactly what they are going to do with Meshmixer in the future, and it is out of my hands. As some of you might have noticed, aspects of Meshmixer have made their way into Autodesk Fusion 360
, which remains free for students, educators, schools, hobbyists, and small startups.
I released the first version of Meshmixer in 2009. The past 7 years have been an amazing journey, in large part due to the members of this forum. Many features and tools in Meshmixer came as a direct result of discussions we have had here. Today, Meshmixer has been downloaded over a million times, and is used every day by thousands of people across the world, from elementary students to doctors who literally use it to save lives. This would never have happened without your support.
I want to be 100% clear, leaving Autodesk and Meshmixer was my decision. I took Meshmixer as far as I could take it. It is time for me to do something new
. I think you will like it!
