• 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.

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.
