Wishing you luck with the surgery, Mac. Rest up and get well soon.
SUPER stoked to see this! Nice job Zak, I can't wait to try it. This is something I have been wondering about for a while. I take it this means there will be a model viewer of some sorts as well (for setting up materials and a general preview)?
Hopefully there will also be some way to decline models that have problems (degenerate faces, flipped UV's, and etc:). The last thing we need are messed up low-quality models being passed around.
