Hello all,

I have a request as well as a question for anyone that can answer me.

First, I have been using away for a while now and used the prefab utility heavily. The first version of prefab had a very nice path animation addition to its already vast capabilities. Prefab 3D came out and dropped that functionality and it was sorely missed on a few of my projects. Are there any plans to make a path creation, path animation tool in the near future and if so what kind of timeline are you looking at.

Second, I see that prefab is still running, and given the similarities between away builder and prefab, is away builder replacing prefab?

I’m in the process of reintroducing some features from Prefab 1.x to 2.x. Path edit, anim is one of them. However, the v1 edit features were a bit poor, so 2.0 is more or less a total rewrite of this functionality. Think for instance of profiles for pathExtrusion, where there were no ways to save or even edit very precisely or save/import them…

Prefab is very alive, even if I have not released any updates for a while, it’s simply because lots of new things are seamlessly working together, and I cannot release half of it atm.

AwayBuilder is maintained and developed by the Away foundation. I’m not involved with it. Prefab3D is a personal project and isn’t dependant of any investors or anyone but me. I’m not planning to stop deving it simply because I need it dayly for my own work and mostly because I love working on it.
I’ll continue share it with the communauty too. Feel free to pick your fav editor or combine them together.

A little sneak of one of the new features coming next update wink

Hello Fabrice,

Thanks for the information. I too use prefab often with my work, and now that I am getting back into a project that works in 3D I am looking forward to your updates. Prefab has been a life saver on previous project and I am sure it will be extremely useful moving forward.

Again thanks for the update,
