Dear Friends of Silo,
We are very excited to announce the final release of Silo 2022.0, which is ready for you to download now! This update comes with some MAJOR fundamental improvements to the deep inner workings of Silo.

First off, we’ve swapped in Pixar’s OpenSubdiv library to power Silo’s subdivision surfaces. This means that on high-subdivision models RAM usage can be reduced by more than 50%, and interactive edits to your subd models will work faster and smoother than ever, often dramatically so.
Next, we’ve completely redesigned how Silo’s memory management works under the hood, which should increase the long-term stability and efficiency of Silo.

We've got one last surprise update for Silo 2021 before switching over to Silo 2022 (which is currently available in beta here, with an updated beta coming very soon): Silo 2021.5! The biggest new feature for this one is SVG file import, but we’ve also gone in and improved virtually every other format Silo imports and exports, including fixing issues with non-English characters in file paths.

Milo 2022.0 is here and ready for you to download!
We've introduced new playable reference characters to Milo, controlled via any standard gamepad. It's a fun, easy, and instantaneous way to interact with your art, whether you want to get a feel for the scale of game assets, more realistically show off your architectural work to clients, or just have fun running around in your creations.
Milo's unique nature as a standalone realtime renderer powered by the Unreal game engine make innovative features like this possible. Keep an eye out for more updates from us, and be sure to let us know what you'd like to see next!
The update is FREE for all users who purchased Silo & Milo from nevercenter.com within the last year; simp...
