The new Gear/Wheel primitive comes with intuitive options that make it great for easily creating a huge variety of gears and wheels, but also for creating stars, towers, pipes, and more. All of these variations come with nice ready-made UV maps.
We’ve also greatly expanded the options for creating different kinds of useful spheres in the Sphere options window. In addition to Silo’s existing...

Milo 2022.2 is here, with two handy new features!
Firstly, we've added video export, so you can now export your turntable renders to video formats (along with the previously-supported GIF export). Secondly, you can now disable shadows in the settings page, which is handy for scenarios (such as some interior renders) where shadows are getting in the way.

Dear Friends of Silo,
We are very excited to announce the final release of Silo 2022.0, which is ready for you to download now! This update comes with some MAJOR fundamental improvements to the deep inner workings of Silo.

First off, we’ve swapped in Pixar’s OpenSubdiv library to power Silo’s subdivision surfaces. This means that on high-subdivision models RAM usage can be reduced by more than 50%, and interactive edits to your subd models will work faster and smoother than ever, often dramatically so.
Next, we’ve completely redesigned how Silo’s memory management works under the hood, which should increase the long-term stability and efficiency of Silo.
