About Artineering

Hey there, we are Artineering, a small self-funded startup developing solutions for stylized and non-photorealistic 3D rendering.

We have been working full-time since May 2019 to bring you MNPRX, a non-photorealistic real-time rendering plugin for Autodesk Maya, and Flair (coming soon), the natural evolution of MNPRX that is meant to be fully customizable and run with any 3D/2D application.
Our Story

We grew tired of 3D art always having the same look, when there are so many amazing artists out there that produce much more expressive art using different media. Upon closer research and experimentation, we discovered that almost all 3D renderers available to artists only focus on photorealistic styles with limited options to do something different.

We decided to address this and started all the way back in 2014 researching the field and publishing a few academic papers down the road (we even presented our work at Siggraph Real-Time Live! in 2017). After an overwhelmingly positive response, we decided to bring our research and vision for a different, stylized and strongly art-directed 3D renderer to the next level.

Since 2019, we have focused on making our stylized 3D renderer, MNPRX, production-ready and expanded the 3D styles we offer through different client work to include Watercolor, Cutout, Frayed and Hatching.

It has been a personally rewarding journey (we are total nerds about this stuff =) and we have gotten some truly inspiring and motivating feedback not only from our clients and advisors, but also from artists all around the world using our software. Thank you so much for the support you have given us thus far.


Why Patreon?

Our software is accessible to everyone, but we also want to connect with artists and enthusiasts like you on a more personal level. So, we would like to involve and invite you to join our journey, as we continue to develop software to render the 3D imagery that you envision and want. For this purpose, we have created different Tiers here in Patreon to support us along the way and contribute to creating the next generation of stylized 3D computer graphics. 

Your contributions will be directly funneled into developing community driven requests! Our dream is to not depend on client work for our survival and to be able to fully dedicate ourselves to create the tools and technology that you all want to have.

As a patron, you will get immediate access to an activation key for MNPRX Community edition, which has no resolution restrictions and to our patrons-only community in Discord. The more generous and supportive you get, the more you will be able to unlock. Check out some of the amazing rewards found in the Tiers above.

Thank you so much for giving this a read and believing in us!
Goals
34 of 100 patrons
While most of our team is doing client work to finance our small startup, we would love to have more time available to develop requests from our community.

Once we reach 100 patrons, we will start developing one community-driven feature a month!
