• Curvy 3D 3.0 is an innovative sculpting program for Windows and OS X (using Wine emulation), ideal for first time 3D artists.

• Drawing is Fast: Curvy brings new speed to 3D modeling by letting you draw shapes straight into 3D. Create whole models with just a few strokes. Sculpting 3D graphics for art and games is quick and hassle free.

• Painting is Easy: Colors and shapes are easy to work with using Curvy's artist friendly tools. You can sketch and paint colors, forms and bumps directly onto your 3D models, and then export models and textures for use in other 3D programs.

Curvy is great for organic art, and now adds a full set of digital clay tools to its drawing toolset. Warp brushes let you sculpt as easily as you can paint colors onto the surface. You can pinch, bulge, roughen, smooth and flatten the model easily. 3D Sculpting is easy and fun with Curvy.

"I constantly tout [Curvy] in my corner of the 3d world as THE lathe modeler of choice." - Monsoon

Artists with an interest in getting into computer graphics appreciate the sketch based graphic tools and intuitive controls to shape and sculpt models in Curvy - it is all simple and non-technical, you don't have to work with individual triangles. And it is easy to use Curvy models with programs like Bryce and Poser.

Curvy has improved obj export so it is easier to use Curvy models in other rendering software. You can also save hi-resolution screenshots from Curvy's views for use in another graphics program, and Curvy's TGA screenshots support Alpha for easy compositing in your graphics program.

Originally a sketch-based sculpting program, Curvy now lets you create image based 3D models using a simple image inflate tool. This is handy for photo based modeling and for shapes that are much easier to create as a graphic design rather than a 3D model.

Lighting and texturing are easy in Curvy as the viewports always use the best realtime render settings. You can paint on bump and displacement maps and see the results as you paint. Image creation is WYSIWYG making for friendly artist software. Curvy's realtime renderer lets you create a wide range of materials (eg: skin, glass, metal) using lightmaps.

What's Included & Features
What's Included & Features
  • Sketch based modelling
    • Draw an outline to create a fully rounded 3D model immediately, then draw more outlines to refine the shape. Curvy 3D Volumetric Merge

  • Volumetric Merge
    • Separate shapes can be merged together to create a continuous skin.
    • "Boolean And" and Subtract operators can also be applied to cut into a model.

  • Sculpting by Painting
    • Warp brushes add details to the model surface creating bumps and grooves as you paint.
    • Includes Inflate, Deflate, Pinch, Smooth and Flatten brushes.     Easy Curve Modelling Tools     

  • Easy Curve and Mesh editing
    • Soft move tools let you shape curves and meshes by dragging them with your mouse while the model updates in realtime.

  • Image Based Sculpting
    • New Image Inflate tool takes a silhouette or greyscale image and produces a 3D model using Heightmap, Bubble, Bevel and Extrude styles. Most of the pieces of armour in this screenshot were created from Inflated Images.     Realtime Displacement Maps     
    Adaptive Subdivision Sculpting
    • Meshes divide as you sculpt putting the detail exactly where you need it and keeping the overall triangle count down. You can even reverse the process where needed with a new mesh simplification tool.  

  • Painting in 3D
    • Paint on colour, specular, and bumpmaps in either the 3D views or on the 2D textures.
    • Use a variety of brush shapes, a dropper tool and a smooth brush to work on texture maps.
    • Curvy 3D objects are created with ready made UV maps so you can just select a brush and start painting.  

  • Materials and Lighting
    • Curvy Lightmap technology lets you apply materials and lighting together. Choose from plastic, clay or metallic Lightmaps (and many more) or paint your own.

  • Speed Sculpting
    • Draw Lathes and use Quick Merge All to turn them into a smooth skin ready for sculpting. Curvy 3D is very fast at making an accurate basemesh for high resolution sculpting.

  • Exporting
    • Export models to 3DS or OBJ to animate and render in other software.   

  • Also...
    • Export textures to edit in your own graphics software.
    • Pose Models using groups or Curvy's new automatic Skinning technology.
    • Mirror Mesh to make any mesh symmetrical.
    • UV Front/Back applies a quick UV map to let you paint on the front and back of a model separately.
