Abstract unveils InstaMAT

From Abstract's press release:

Stuttgart, Germany – 10th January 2024

After over five years of meticulous development, Abstract is delighted to announce the worldwide availability of InstaMAT on 24th January 2024. InstaMAT stands as a groundbreaking software designed to transform industries, offering scalable 3D content creation and unifying a diverse range of technologies into cohesive and scalable workflows.

InstaMAT is the industry’s first solution that empowers studios and professionals to build scalable content, achieving substantial time and cost savings. From asset texturing using layering and 3D painting workflows, AI, sophisticated 2D image processing algorithms, procedural modeling, and more – InstaMAT redefines what is possible in 3D content creation.

It’s been an incredibly long development journey for InstaMAT“, says Manfred M. Nerurkar, CEO of the Abstract group,I believe that not many companies attempt to build a product at the scale and depth of InstaMAT. In order to create a product that is capable of changing the status quo in our space, you’ll need to research and develop thousands of algorithms and figure out a brilliant user experience so it can come together as one holistic solution. I’m proud of what the team has achieved and I believe it is going to cause deep ripples in the industry.
