  • DeleD CE

    Free Windows Website

    DeleD is a 3D modeler and level-editor combined into one. It focuses at game development and is specifically designed to create static objects/worlds. Other areas in which you can put DeleD to good use are, for example, educational services, webdesign, prototyping and image creation.

    DeleD focusses on five areas to provide in your daily modeling needs. These are:

    * Geometry Editing: DeleD has lots of tools to modify 3D objects, including Smoothing and Boolean Operators
    * Animation: DeleD provides a basic animation system allowing you to create animated objects in no-time
    * UV Mapping: DeleD has a build-in UV editor, enabling you to skin your objects in detail
    * Lightmapping: DeleD lights up your world with advanced lightmapping functions
    * Raytracing: DeleD can create stunning pictures with its build-in raytracer

    In addition to that, DeleD has great support for commonly used fileformats / game engines + we'll add yours if wanted!
    So whatever pipeline you're using, DeleD fits in perfectly. And as if that isn't enough already, DeleD comes with hundreds of professional textures and prefabricated 3D models.

    DeleD is easy enough to be used by novice modelers yet also powerful enough to be the choice tool of veteran modelers.

  • Mitsuba

    Free Mac Windows Linux Website

    Physically based renderer.

    Mitsuba is an extensible rendering framework written in portable C++. It implements unbiased as well as biased techniques and contains heavy optimizations targeted towards current CPU architectures.

    The program currently runs on Linux, MacOS X and Microsoft Windows and makes use of SSE2 optimizations on x86 and x86_64 platforms. So far, its main use has been as a testbed for algorithm development in computer graphics, but there are many other interesting applications.

    Mitsuba comes with a command-line interface as well as a graphical frontend to interactively explore scenes. While navigating, a rough preview is shown that becomes increasingly accurate as soon as all movements are stopped. Once a viewpoint has been chosen, a wide range of rendering techniques can be used to generate images, and their parameters can be tuned from within the program.

  • Ayam

    Free Mac Windows Linux Website

    Ayam is a free 3D modelling environment for the RenderMan interface, distributed under the BSD licence. This means that neither the author nor any contributors make money out of this software.

    Ayam features at a glance:

    * RIB (RenderMan Interface Bytestream) export and import.
    * Support for NURBS curves and (trimmed) NURBS surfaces, Boxes, Quadrics (Sphere, Disk, Cylinder, Cone, Hyperboloid, Paraboloid, and Torus), CSG, MetaBalls, Patch Meshes, Polygonal Meshes, and Subdivision Surfaces.
    * NURBS modelling includes approximating and interpolating curves as well as extrude, revolve, sweep, birail, skin and gordon objects with caps, holes, and bevels.
    * First modelling environment to support Subdivision NURBS.
    * Custom objects that may freely implement their representations (using OpenGL and RIB) and even small GUIs to edit their type specific parameters may be written by the user and dynamically loaded at runtime.
    * Scripting interfaces: Tcl, JavaScript; Script objects.
    * Misc: instancing, arbitrary number of modeling views, object clipboard, independent property clipboard, console, n-level undo.
    * File formats (r/w): RIB, DXF, 3DM, 3DMF, OBJ, X3D.

  • Poly

    Free Web Website

    Google Poly is a growing archive of Creative Commons licensed 3D models to make it super easy for developers to find viable characters, icons and other models for use in their AR and VR projects and also for artists, photographers and modelers to showcase their creations.

    Developers can find models across simple categories like animals and art, then explore them in 3D right on the spot to ensure they'll be suitable. Designers, photographers and other artists can upload their creations as .obj and .mtl files.

    Free Web Website

    SculptGL is a small sculpting application powered by JavaScript and webGL.


    • Sculpting tools

      • Standard tools : Brush, Inflate, Smooth, Twist, Drag, etc
      • PBR Vertex Painting (color, roughness, metalness)
      • Alpha texture support for each tools
    • Multiresolution sculpting

      • Quad-tri Subdivison (catmull-clark/loop)

      • Uniform remeshing (quads will have the same size)
      • Can also create non-manifold vertex :(
      • In case of a non closed mesh, a naive holefilling algorithm is performed first
      • Deletes UV
    • Dynamic topology

      • Triangles only
      • Operates in real time
      • Local subdivision (create new triangles)
      • Local decimation (deletes triangles)
      • Deletes UV
    • Supports OBJ, PLY, STL import/export

      • Reads vertex color
      • Optimizes post and pre transform cache (tipsy algorithm)
    • Undo/Redo support
