"Its so freaking EASY. Just downloaded it, exported a missilelauncher from blender, a little getting used to the controls and voilá, seamlessly integrated missilebunny"

"In short, this looks really really fun! Messy and imprecise. I love it when something that is fairly technical like 3D modeling can be completely simplified. This to me seems like a 3D scrapbook tool. A way to take old and unused models and re-work them into something fun and new.?"

"Once in a while we bump into a truly amazing product, and today its Meshmixer..."
