We want take the db&w Tools to the next level and we want you to be a part of it. Support us on Patreon.

db&w Tools are a collection of plugins for LightWave 3D. Previously these were available as a free download.

What We Intend to Do
With your support we want to make db&w Tools even better:

  • Add a new plugin to the db&w Tools every month. We will allow you to choose between different ideas that we propose.
  • You will be a part of development - we'll keep you posted as we progress.
  • will host a Q&A stream per month as well as one live development stream per month.
  • If we meet our stretch goal, we can up the ante and add two plugins per month - or work on a single, larger one.
  • The builds you get will be personalised (your name in the about section) but not dongle locked.
  • You will get a discount of 1% on our regular products per month that you're pledged - up to 12%.
  • Join us on our Discord server, in a section exclusive to patrons.

You can be a patron for as little as US$3 per month.

Join us Now!

We look forward to developing for you, with you.

More information is available on our website and our Patreon page.

Nice for Patreon, if i support you, you can help me since you make new lwpp for plugin to Lightwave 2018? Not sure but are you agreed ? And need a good documentation for it too. Long time I needed to assist to my project because it's rare...

Well, the Patreon isn't really designed for lwpp, but there will be Q&A sessions, and you can ask me about lwpp there as well.
As you can anyhow but just mailing me - [email protected] ;)

Cheers,

Thank you very much. :)

The vote for the first new plugin is currently underway for patrons, the options are a MultiMaths node, a MultiSwitcher node and a Triplanar Image Mapping node.

Is there a way to pay for a year in advance? I would rather pay in a lump sum vs. every month (too many subscriptions nowadays).

As far as I'm aware Patreon doesn't allow for that. But they will charge you automatically and you can cancel (and re-join) any time.

Thanks for the info. With respect to jumping in and out of the subscription, if I decided to join for a month can I continue to use that specific version even if I never resubscribe?

Yes, that's the deal. There's no DRM on the plugins - you will however get a personalised copy with your name on it. And that specific version will also include all previous additions.

Cheers,

Signed up yesterday. Very happy to support you guys. exrTrader has been an essential tool in my kit for many years. Some of your other tools have saved me from what could have been many hours of tedious work. Keep up the great work!

Great idea, I like you’re thinking creatively on the funding! I’ll be signing up for the Apple Tax, er I mean - In My Eye version over the weekend. I’m a sucker for anything that improves workflow, not necessarily the super math-y based ones but the beauty of this is that it sounds like there’s something for everyone. Interested to see where it goes.

Hehe, thanks. Yeah, "a little something for everyone" was the tag line we used with the db&w Tools. ;)

And while the funding is certainly a large part of it, it's the interaction with the community that makes the Patreon project interesting for us.

Cheers,
Mike
