Just been on Steam and I saw Silo for 29.99.

On the Silo site its $109 so that must be about 50% off... I haven't tried it but it seems to do sculpting and reptopology so I thought it a relevant addition to LW. I've been using sculptris upto this point but I might give this ago..

Be aware that, whilst cheap and decent, Silo has been effectively abandoned by its developer. There's been nothing new out of them in a very long time. They closed down their user forum as well, if that's an indication of the level of commitment that they appear to have.

I bought Silo. Cheap. Decent. Never use it. Blender is better if you just want cheap. :)

What he said. Nevercenter really did wrong by it's users. I've tried everything to get them to continue development or even allow a community buyout but, no luck. A terribly sad ending to a product that had tremendous potential.

Oh Oh ... I should have read this message a few days ago. I bought Silo last weekend because it looked interesting and was cheap. Fortunately, I didn't sink too much money into it. I am sure I can use it to suppliment my Lightwave work.

I was one of the earlier adopters of Silo3d. It's modeling paradigm is/was amazing. There are still some professionals using it next to their main software package and even making tutorials with it such as Antony Ward for Digital Tutors. http://www.digitaltutors.com/11/training_search.php?searchString=antony+ward

But when you see someone like Glen Southern adopting his Silo workflow to another package (ie Cinema4d), then you know it's time is at an end. http://southerngfx.co.uk/2011/10/3758
