Alternatives to Autodesk Maya for Linux with any license

  • Blender

    Blender is the free open source 3D content creation suite, available for all major operating systems under the GNU General Public License.

    • Mostly because it's free, but it is also a fully-functioning and constantly improving 3D package. Nearly everything you can do in Maya is possible in Blender. Guest • Sep 2019 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Its free and open source and very powerful. Guest • Nov 2018 • 6 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The team is continually adding updates, and the features are excellent. Unfortunately, the UI is hard to navigate. Guest • Jul 2018 • 10 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Because: i) It is free ii) Has everything in common maybe except for the look and the render quality. Guest • Sep 2017 • 4 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Blender's speedy development, combined with its large feature set and photorealistic rendering, make it a worthy alternative to Maya, especially since it's totally Open and Free. Guest • Jul 2017 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is the best animation and 3d modeling software, it is also recommended for video editor since it also has this functionality ... Guest • Mar 2017 • 2 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It has all the 3D tools and it's very simple. Though could add some stuff like Extruding Guest • Jun 2015 • 4 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Gmsh

    Gmsh is a 3D finite element grid generator with a build-in CAD engine and post-processor. Its design goal is to provide a fast, light and user-friendly meshing tool with parametric input and advanced visualization capabilities. Gmsh is built around four modules: geometry, mesh, solver and post-processing. The specification of any input to these modules is done either interactively using the graphical user interface or in ASCII text files using Gmsh's own scripting language.

  • 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.

  • Archipelis 3D

    With Archipelis 3D, creating 3D content is accessible for everyone. No need to be an expert to create organic shapes and textured 3D models. This innovative concept is extremely easy to use: just draw an outline from a background image to make a 3D textured model! Or you can use a blank view and just draw the shapes you want from scratch. It's the most intuitive approach to sketch out the shapes and enhance them with textures and photos.

  • Archipelis Designer

    Archipelis Designer is a software that creates 3D models in a different manner: it's possible to create a 3D model simply and quickly by drawing it. Just draw the contour of the various shapes of the model (for example the head, the body, legs...) and Archipelis automatically merges them and applies a texture which comes from the image you just traced. It is possible to use a picture as a background and follows the contours on it.
