Solidsmack.com has reported the end of 123D Catch, 123D Design and 123D Make, based on a post from the official Autodesk 123D blog: "If you have been using the web based versions of the 123D apps that run in your browser, you probably noticed that they have gone bonkers. We’re well aware and have been anticipating the need to shut them down as the plugin support that allows them to run within the browser is no longer supported. So, today, we are sad to see our trusty web based apps go, they were a trusty platoon while they were here!"

With the anticipated modeling capability coming out in ZBrush 4R7, this bridge will no doubt provide artists with an easy way to see their work in a polished and rendered state. Side note, this is an incredible boost for KeyShot devs, so we are happy to see them partner up with Pixologic this way.
