Commercial Blender Alternatives for Linux

There are many alternatives to Blender for Linux if you are looking to replace it. The most popular Linux alternative is Small Autodesk Maya iconAutodesk Maya. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try Small Wings 3D iconWings 3D or Small Natron iconNatron. If that doesn't suit you, our users have ranked more than 100 alternatives to Blender and many of them are available for Linux so hopefully you can find a suitable replacement. Other interesting Linux alternatives to Blender are Small Bforartists iconBforartists (Free, Open Source), Small 3D-Coat icon3D-Coat (Paid), Small MODO iconMODO (Paid) and Small Art of Illusion iconArt of Illusion (Free, Open Source).

Blender is the free and open-source 3D creation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing, video editing, and motion tracking. If you're looking for more info about Blender like screenshots, reviews and comments you should visit our info page about it. Below you find the best alternatives.

Alternatives to Blender for Linux with Commercial License

  • 3D-Coat

    3D-Coat is a commercial digital sculpting program from Pilgway designed to create free-form organic and hard surfaced 3D models from scratch, with tools which enable users to sculpt, add polygonal topology (automatically or manually), create UV maps (automatically or manually), texture the resulting models with natural painting tools, and render static images or animated "turntable" movies.

  • MARI

    MARI is a creative texture-painting tool that can handle extreme projects. MARI was developed at Weta Digital to handle the massively complex, highly detailed look development work demanded of the texture department by projects such as District 9, The Lovely Bones, and Avatar. MARI has a creative toolset which puts many stand-alone 2D paint systems to shame, allowing artists to concentrate on painting. The user interface is responsive and fluid.

  • Autodesk Mudbox

    Autodesk Mudbox digital sculpting and texture painting software offers 3D modeling professionals the ability to quickly and easily create highly detailed organic and inorganic 3D assets. 3D Layers Store different detail passes, libraries of morph targets, and more on multiple layers using the efficient Mudbox layer workflow. 3D layers can be blended, masked, erased, mirrored, and merged, just like layers in a 2D image-editing package.

  • Assetforge

    Asset Forge allows anyone to create 3D models and 2D sprites using building blocks. Finished assets are compatible with most available game engines. You'll have access to a large library of pre-made blocks, they're each grouped in different categories. You can place an unlimited number of blocks in your creation after which it's possible to export and use in the game engine for your choice.

  • AC3D

    AC3D is one of the longest established 3D design software programs available today. In development from 1994 and commercially available since 1996, AC3D has grown to become a highly regarded and popular program. Use AC3D™ to create 3D models for: games, virtual reality and flight simulation, scientific, medical and general data visualisation, rapid prototypes of 3D designs, high resolution 3D renderings, Google Earth, Second Life and much more...

  • RealFlow

    RealFlow is a stand-alone application for fluid and dynamics simulation that allows easy, intuitive control and visualization of the behaviour of fluids and rigid bodies, and their interaction with a surrounding environment. RealFlow was the first, and remains the definitive tool for creating impressively accurate and realistic fluid simulation effects in the Computer Graphics market.

  • Sensei Format

    Sensei Format & the Blender Crash Course were created with each other in mind (blendersensei.com/blender-crash-course). The idea being, make Blender easier to learn and use. Sensei Format removes tedious and difficult to remember steps from hundreds of common 3D modeling and animation tasks. Learning a 3D program is similar to learning a programming language. Once learned, transferring your skills is fairly simple. Sensei Format helps you learn core CG disciplines faster.

    • Blender is awesome, but to technical for some users. Sensei Format makes it easier to use. Guest • Jan 2020 Disagree   Agree
