New Release: Cargo v1.1!

New Release: Cargo v1.1!

Since we launched in May, we’ve been listening, learning, and working hard to deliver consistent updates to Cargo. We’ve worked with you on the support channels, listened to your ideas on the Feedback Center, and talked with so many of you across social channels and in interviews. This update has been a focused effort to deliver on the ideas, requests, and feedback that you’ve asked for. And today, we’re so excited to release Cargo v1.1.

With this update, we’ve added Cargo integrations for all of KitBash3D’s previously supported 3D software and render engines, including Cinema 4D, Unity and Houdini. We’ve made substantial quality of life improvements based on community feedback including the ability to change your download folder, full screen preview assets, and improved Kit filtering. We’ve addressed countless bugs that you’ve reported, and have made significant improvements to the speed and stability of the platform.

Thank you for your feedback! Cargo 1.1 is a direct response to the amazing insights you provided through our Feedback Center. We're always listening and evolving. Make sure to create a post, or upvote, to let us know how we can enable and inspire you further.

This is a free update, available to anybody with Cargo. Open your Cargo application today to get the update, or download Cargo to get started.
