Chaos Launches Cosmos

The 3D-content library features more than 650 free models and HDRIs that address common-use cases such as furniture, trees and people.

Chaos has launched Chaos Cosmos, a 3D-content library featuring more than 650 free models and HDRIs that address the most common-use cases found in architecture and design, including furniture, trees, cars and people.

“Cosmos assets are designed to work across the Chaos ecosystem, giving users a central way to add context and realism to any 3D visualization,” says Phillip Miller, vice president of product management at Chaos. “For years, we’ve been working to connect our tools so visualization feels accessible at every stage of the design process. Now that same interconnected system has render-ready assets on tap, making it even easier to bring rich details to a project whether you’re working through initial concepts or finalizing the big reveal.”

Cosmos assets can be found online or via a new button within V-Ray 5 for Revit, 3ds Max, SketchUp and Rhino. They are also optimized for Chaos’ real-time tools, including Vantage and V-Ray Vision; because of these optimizations, the assets adapt to any tool they are in, increasing viewport speed without the need for setup.

The initial batch of essential assets will always be free of charge and were created with the help of Design Connected (furniture and accessories for interior design), Hum3D (vehicle maker), Maxtree (plants, trees, vegetation and foliage), NoEmotion (HDR skies and environments), Renderpeople (scanned 3D people) and Vizpark (trees and plants).
