- Major improvement of the molding tool. I developed a new sort of Boolean operations that are always stable, lightning-fast, and applied it to this tool first. Now you can create molds for meshes up to 70-100M, which is unreachable in the industry.
The result is subdivided adaptively, so the mesh at output will be relatively not too heavy. It is much, much faster; on my PC, molding the 50M mesh takes 6 minutes.

The principle of fast Booleans may soon be used for other important tasks - real-time Booleans, even for heavy meshes.
Developing of that algorithms took some time, but the result will influence on the whole 3DCoat, not just on molding.

This improvement may really be game changing, because industrial molds of very detailed objects may be done via mesh in 3DCoat when using NURBS is just impossible.
