  Customer reviews:

  • "When I was at DD I discovered DUPExtract and it became an indispensable tool. Each place I have worked at I used it extensively...I recently found this suite of tools, and I immediately made the purchase without hesitation. This suite of tools is way more valuable than the price you pay for it!"
    • Randy Sharp, Digital Film Artist

  • "I've been using TTools for years and will continue to do so. So many of them are great time savers. I don't think my workflow would be as fast without these tools. If I didn't have DUPExtract, AttachMaster, or MirrorPivot I would be lost in the woods. Stop reading this and get them, GO!"
    • Matt Olson, Professional Game Developer

  • "Everyone in the CG industry keeps an eye open for those tools, big or small, that make our lives a little easier. TTools is one of those products. A very nice and diverse set of tools that fills the gaps left by the main application. And if that isn't enough, customer and product support are first class. I almost never follow up on these surveys, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to plug what I think is a great product from a committed developer."
    • Mike Tinderington, The Core Group

  • "TTools allows me to focus much more effort on the creation process.  It provides an organized avenue to ease the complexity of any task, and over the years has become a cornerstone of my modeling pipeline.  Easily said, Maya without this shelf is a Maya I don't want to work in."
    • Justin S., Professional Game Developer
