Make, edit, and repair 3D models using anyone of these prices of software. No matter if you are a novice or a seasoned professional you will find the tools right for you
A free, easy-to-learn online app anyone can use to create and print 3D models. Provides a set of tutorials to get you started. Registration required.
Focus as an artist on pure creativity. Sculptris is a fun and engaging way to start off your digital sculpting journey! If you're new to the world of digital sculpting, Sculptris is the ideal ground on which to get started. Model your 3D sculptures like clay. Easy to learn.
Used for general 3D modeling. It is good at geometric shapes, easy to learn, powerful and has several plugins available (see below). Best of all it is free for non-commercial use.
Capture places, people and things in 3D using your Windows Phone or Mobile device, iPhone, iPad, Android device, or any camera. Share your catches, or 3D print a real object from a set of photos! Tricky to use and works better with larger objects. Free downloads of other users shared captures.
A free and open source 3D creation suite that allows you to model nearly anything. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation. Blender is cross-platform and runs equally well on Linux, Windows and Macintosh computers. A powerful program that can be difficult to learn.
Creating solid 3D CAD models. It is free software and available for Linux/UNIX, Windows and Mac OS X. Unlike most free software for creating 3D models (such as Blender) it does not focus on the artistic aspects of 3D modelling but instead on the CAD aspects. Thus it might be the application you are looking for when you are planning to create 3D models of machine parts but pretty sure is not what you are looking for when you are more interested in creating computer-animated movies. Made of 3D modelers who have a programming background.
Convert files, edit meshes, and more with this open source, portable, and extensible system aimed to help the processing of the typical not-so-small unstructured models arising in 3D scanning, providing a set of tools for editing, cleaning, healing, inspecting, rendering and converting this kind of meshes.
netfabb Basic is not just a viewer, it provides mesh edit, repair and analysis capabilities to everyone already being or aspiring to become part of this fantastic, growing, creative, high-tech industry called Additive Manufacturing, Rapid Prototyping or 3D Printing. You can use this program to fix STL files.
Use the Microsoft 3D Model Repair service powered by netfabb to repair STL, OBJ, 3MF or VRML files automatically. Like a spellchecker, this service will save you time by taking care of the many common errors in 3D models that otherwise would require manual repair by a dedicated designer. The service closes holes in the model, fixes face normals, removes self-intersections, and more. You'll be more productive and be on your way to more reliable 3D manufacturing in minutes!
