Our webapp allows quick editing of 3D assets using AI prompting, and with simple sliders and toggles. Users can access hundreds of templates to customize 3D assets.

Our SDK handles generation of huge worlds in realtime, at runtime. It enables 99% storage space saving, in-game creation tools, procedural worlds, and liveops asset changes.

We combine parametric models with AI, which ensures that assets are always game-ready. We generate UV maps and LODs instantly, with optimized meshes, but still allow prompting for 3D models with immediate results.
