Power Cutter tool
Power Cutter is the ideal tool for building objects that explode,
break apart, or fit together. This important new tool facilitates things like exploded views
(see image on opposite column), sectioning, assembly and

Power Booleans Customer Quotes
David Knourek: "I have found Power Booleans to be indispensable in creation of this type of work because it not only
creates great complex geometry, but allows me to go back in and make changes without having to start over from scratch. Thanks for a great product."
Justin Yarro: "The best thing about 3ds Max is that it has Power Booleans."
Robin Lawrie: "I just did a
Boolean with about 150 windows from a building one after the other with no
problems at all, then for fun subtracted a torus from that...which I was
sure would cause it to fail.... well it didn't.... here's the object...
looks quite nice!"
David Tormoen: "Your software is excellent. A creative mind is boundless and is only slowed down by the tools we have made to understand it. "nPower Software" is eliminating the inevitable distractions for the Artist/Designer working in 3d."
Animation Magazine: "The Plug-in saves a lot of time, and I mean a lot. The incredible thing is that you may actually feel smarter when you start using this clever plug-in."

truly deserves the name Power"
