V 0.08 Release Note:
This is a free Non Commercial Tool. It is released in Alpha Test Version. Dont expect everything to work as intended. There are limitations I am working on to improve. I tried putting in as many tools that would help Sculpt things. Some of them are not working as intended. For example I just recently noticed the VDB reshape and Smoothing seem to resample the Volume causing to lose Details. Thats a bummer so we are still looking for better Volume Combiner Techniques.
