August 11, 2014: What a year it has been for Clara.io, the online 3D modeling and rendering app. It was only a year ago when we first announced Clara.io and showed off the pre-beta version at SIGGRAPH 2013. To say that this was a busy year for us here at Exocortex is the understatement of the year.
In the past year, while running the beta, we’ve continued to launch major feature improvements including a including a revamped and polished UI, a ton of sub-object editing tools, support for subdivision surfaces, a comprehensive integration of ChaosGroups’ V-Ray photorealistic renderer, and our 3D Stream technology that enables you to embed interactive V-Ray scenes into webpages. Our growth has also blown past our expectations. We are pleased to announce that in one year, we have grown from 0 to 65,000 registered Clara.io users.
