3d graphics software

In this course, we will mainly use Blender, a free and open-source 3d-graphics software that can be downloaded from here.

Some ore 3d-graphics suites:

  • Cinema 4d
  • Maya
  • Modo
  • 3d Max

The previos three are general 3d-graphics software suites that bare a resemblence to Blender, but are not free. The next two are also similar, but specialize in a specific area of 3d graphics.

  • Houdini - special effects, simulations etc
  • zBrush - modelling, texturing

Some popular CAD software, meant to ease the process of design and drawing:

  • Fusion 360
  • Solidworks
  • Sketchup

3D frameworks for use on the web:

  • Threejs
  • Aframe

And 3d-engines and software suites for game creation.

  • Unity
  • Unreal
