What is a Mesh Body?

Mesh is the capability to bring 3D models, known as meshes, created in third-party tools into Second Life. Mesh bodies are made using mesh builds. Some examples of mesh bodies in Secondlife are Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Signature, and Legacy. 

What is Omega?

Back in the “old days”, we used Omega appliers with our mesh bodies. A lot of makeup and skins are used on a mesh body by installing or using an Omega applier. Some Omega appliers, skins, makeup, and tattoos are still available to buy, or as freebies around the grid, but many creators have stopped making Omega compatible products. Omega appliers must be purchased for your mesh body. For example, you can buy an Omega Applier for the Maitreya mesh body. Omega must be installed into your body before you can begin using appliers.

*Fab Free Tip* If you purchase the Omega appliers at the Omega Solutions main store in-world, instead of on their Marketplace store, it only costs 99L per applier (for most appliers). The LM for their main store is here.

What is Bakes on Mesh (BOM)?

Bakes on Mesh (BOM) was introduced Second Life in 2019. BOM is the use of system layers (skins, makeups, tattoos, eyes) on a mesh body.

What is Bento?

A Bento mesh body or head moves. Non-bento bodies and heads are static (they do not move).
