Free and open source 3D design software

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Blender is the best software for creating rich animations and visual effects on a low budget.

Pluspunten:

The Blender software comes with CPU and GPU rendering abilities, advanced sculpting tools, production-ready visual effects, high-quality animation and rigging, and supports 2D design in 3D scenes. Works great on Windows, Mac and Linux systems too. Offers rich collection of models and elements with Blender cloud membership at $11.5 per month.

Minpunten:

Blender is a bit complicated to learn. Not suitable for developing games. Models are somewhat noisy and messy to clean.

You can't Go wrong with Blender

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Over All Blender is a tool that is going to help you a lot with your work and with your money.
The workflow is faster because it is Shortcuts depending, maybe hard to learn at first but the fruits of the work going to show very quickly.

Pluspunten:

You have a Full pack in one software from texturing and modelling to sculpting and post-production, everything is integrated in it plus you can have the full app in a USB where ever you go ! Have been using it for more than 6 years and today it is more powerful and modern, they even added a unique 2D in a 3D environment feature that is unique to blender.

Minpunten:

This is a hard one I don't think there is something I don't like about it other than it is a bit hard to learn but it is hard to learn any type of 3D generally. and the app can crash from time to time but same could be said to any 3D Software.

Worst 3d program

2,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I had to use as a trainee in architectural office where all bigger 3d projects were done in blender. Why on earth anyone would use it because there was a cinema 4d licence in the house?

Pluspunten:

Cycles is quite good and you can get same quality as in commercial packages.

Minpunten:

It has no windows user aproach to its use and it is awkward to pick up and start making any project very fast Option are cluttered all over the place There is no left mouse action but it is something else.

Blender is a lifesaver!

5,0 4 maanden geleden

Pluspunten:

All the resources were top-notch, everything was easy to use, and everything was all in one! Lifesaver! Prevented me from wasting my time on finding secure, free, resources for 5 different actions!

Minpunten:

The Apple app uses almost 25% of my charge if used for 1.5 hours, but after an update, or reboot, it works perfectly!

Creative Alliance Review

5,0 11 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: Well it has been almost 4 years of Blender use and this software has evolved so much from when we started and we have been completely satisfied as a company and has enabled us to make many different quality 3D models according to our customers' preferences.

Pluspunten:

3D modeling could not be done without Blender. When we started as a start-up, Blender, being a free software helped us to such an extent that we cannot describe. We have produced so many image and video renders for our clients using the cycles renderer that helped us grow as a company because of good words from our clients. Blender is truly where everyone starts their 3D journey and we encourage students who want to learn 3D modeling and animation to look no further than Blender.

Minpunten:

The only con about Blender is, might be a personal opinion, the viewport navigation. It would me much more easier with the implementation of viewport navigation like that of Unreal Engine. That would make Blender the complete software in my opinion.

Animation and modeling for beginners up to professionals

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: We are constructing models for games, websites, desktop applications and animations.
Once you get the philosophy that goes with the software it integrates nicely into the pipeline and is very easy to use and get results. Having support from some 3D rendering farms on the cloud generates a resource and costs optimization in our production pipeline.

Pluspunten:

The community is the best part of this software. There is always someone you can ask, and they are all willing to give a hand or a pointer in the right direction. There is also plenty of materials for almost every possible topic. It has become a fundamental piece of software that many artists use for their daily work and there is always a new plugin that will add more tooling to your creative process. And you can always create, modify or better any thing that you have in mind as it is open source, but it also has API access to almost every functionality.

Minpunten:

I believe that the community has been constructing a great piece of software and has eliminated any thing I could have had against it.

3D Rendering using Blender

5,0 7 maanden geleden

Pluspunten:

Blender is one of the best 3D Modelling software that you can find right now, it is free and has the biggest community in the world so it won't be hard to find materials and tutorials in Blender.

Minpunten:

Blender isn't easy to learn especially for beginners, the UI is very complex compared with other similar software. The learning curve in the beginning could be very high for some people.

Great for architectural visualizations

5,0 2 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: Using Blender changed how I presented my architectural designs during this period. It took some time to master, but now it’s an essential part of my design toolkit. Not for every scenario, though, but it's great to have the alternative in my software portfolio to produce high-quality visuals that bring my projects to life.

Pluspunten:

Blender’s comprehensive suite of tools is a game-changer for creating detailed architectural 3D renderings and visualizations. Its is constantly improving and updating with new content.

Minpunten:

Due to its steep learning curve can be hard to manage at first, especially for those new to 3D modeling software.

Blender IS the New Standard

4,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Learning and using blender over the past several years has really been a game changer for me. In-Engine modeling tools cut it for quick blockouts, but further than that it's important to use a software that has dedicated tools and interface for 3D modeling. Blender is the obvious option in 2022 and going forward do to the sheer amount of documentation, the fantastic community, the available tools, and how quickly new features and improvements are able to be made onto the platform. Although AAA studios are slow to adopt Blender into their pipelines, it is crucial for new studios, rather indie, AA, or AAA to adopt Blender into their pipelines over similar software.

Pluspunten:

One of the major benefits of the software being open source is the quick and relatively easy ability for community members to create custom plugins and addons. This functionality allows the developers at the Blender Foundation to focus more on core features rather than specific edge use cases (however common) that are more easily resolved and tested by the Blender community instead. Ultimately this means MUCH faster development and improved tools than any other 3D software can do. In the last 3-4 years I have used Blender I have seen it come from a rather mundane and average 3D software to easily outpacing some of the 3D giants in many respects. Very few instances does using another 3D software make sense over Blender.

Minpunten:

There are still some performance issues with sculpting that I'd love to see improvements in the future. For instance, I have an i7 4790 CPU, 24 gigs of DDR3 RAM, a 4 TB SSD, and a GTX 1070 8gbs VRAM GPU and more than 3-5 million triangles in sculpting mode either slows my computer down to a crawl OR crashes blender outright. However, using a software like Zbrush I can easily sculpt at 20-30 million triangles before I have any sort of lag or crash. That performance difference is quite major and is one of the only places where I prefer to use another software.

Blender has it all for a studio or freelancer on a budget!

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Over the years I have used Blender to create 3D graphics and animation for short films and print projects. Mostly these days I find myself using its capabilities as a motion tracking software to add motion graphics to advertising. And occasionally I will also use the software to aid my illustration work. I have also used Blender as a video editor in a pinch, however it's not my main as it's still far easier and faster (not to menton feature rich when it comes to AUDIO!) to use a dedicated video editor like Vegas or Premiere.

Pluspunten:

Blender can do almost anything the major software packages can do and then some; in fact, it's quite reassuring that major studios have publicly announced that they use it too. Blender is 3D animation and rendering software; it's video editing and motion graphics software; and it's even a 3D game engine. There's also a ton of support online for the software, in terms of tutorials on Blender's official website and through 3rd party channels (eg youtube videos, and blog sites.) Also, I like that Blender is FREE!

Minpunten:

Because Blender is so feature rich, basically the "swiss army knife" of 3D software, it can be a bit confusing, if not frustrating, to switch between editing modes. Also, although it's gotten better over the years, the layouts can be quite different from version to version as more features are added, meaning that time can be lost reacquainting myself with the interface that could have been spent working.

Best free software for 3D needs but with some bugs

4,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Blender has helped us save up a lot of money despite the bugs and problems related to finding up to date docs. It's a great open source software that is backed up by huge companies and it's used by a lot of people, especially low budget o indie.
While paid products are more stable and consistent, a bit easier to use, Blender as a free alternative is really the best thing out there.

Pluspunten:

The developers of Blender are a godsend. This software has been around for several years and it's being developed now more than ever. It's an open source program that's backed by huge names from the gaming and IT industry such as: nVidia, AMD, Intel, Unity, Unreal Engine, etc. It has all the tools a game developer would ever need (some have certain issues however and other tools are faster than Blender's) and with the scripting that can be done you can even make games directly into Blender. Apart from being a great 3D modeling too it also supports advanced animations so complex movies can be made. Being so widely used the community is quite big and there are a lot of plugins for certain tasks. Same with the software importing the assets made in Blender: there are specific plugins that are meant to fix some issues Blender has.

Minpunten:

One of the biggest issues when working with Blender is the numerous amount of bugs present. Compared to paid products, Blender has .... a lot! And sadly a lot of them don't get fixed fast. Another issue is that they update the software, but can never settle on something that will last for more than a few versions so watching tutorials always ends up with me having to google where to find whatever button was pressed because the tutorial shows something I cannot find. The export is also slightly broken as there are certain steps to be taken in order for the model to be properly exported to game engines.

Best 3D Software for beginners

5,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: I still find Blender the best 3D software that I am currently using.It is free, with hundreds of free tutorial, very organized interface and easy to use, complete software where you can do your work from A to Z, and a great community to discuss your projects with.On the other side, some bugs still need fixing in Blender but the good news is that the software is constantly updating and improving his features.

Pluspunten:

I have been using blender for more than 3 years now, whether in my job or my personal projects. I find Blender one of the best 3D softwares available at the moment, and that is for many reasons:First, the software is free for anyone to download and start creating in minutes.Being for free with a huge amount of free tutorials online makes it the best software for anyone trying to learn or start a career in 3D.The interface is very easy and straight forward, and will help you along all the process, from modeling to unwrapping, texturing, rigging, animating and even compositing before you render.The built-in render engines are also strong and can do the job no matter how much details you're aiming for in your render.I totally recommend Blender for anyone who's working on 3D projects whether he is a beginner or a professional.

Minpunten:

There is not much I did not like about Blender.Like any other 3D software, Blender has a chance that it will crash during your work, but that is the case in any design software.A specific issue I faced is while creating line art for my models in rendering. The feature works pretty good on non-animated objects, but when your models are animated, the feature gets harder to control, and not giving the desired results at each frame which will need manual fixing to achieve your desired result.

Maya and 3DS users? Please read about an amazing 3D model/animate/print alternative

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Our initial interest with Blender was sparked by its price: free. Autodesk's fee structures are not too bad if you are a power user, but the cost of having software seats for employees while they are learning is really a pain... so we started exploring Blender. Pretty quickly we discovered that it offers what we needed from the Autodesk products and more. We have come to appreciate the drag-and-drop compatibility with the Unity game engine, and we use it extensively for 3D printing. I think it makes for an easier and quicker ROI to get employees started with Blender -- mostly to see which of them are able and interested in attacking the learning curve. The fact that Blender is free is no longer the primary attraction to us, but it certainly allows us to work with new employees and with contractors around the world who appreciate the same attributes.

Pluspunten:

Blender is an absolute Swiss Army knife for 3D modeling, animation, painting and video compositing/editing. It is free, and open source. After experience with Maya and 3DS -- which we admittedly liked very much -- we have moved to Blender exclusively because of its awesome selection of tools and add-ons. We use it for creating animations, 2D art, sculptures and 3D printed items.

Minpunten:

About my 3-stars rating for ease of use: None of the 3D modeling and animation applications are easy to use if you do not have a background in those disciplines. I consider Blender to be 5-star ease of use... but on your first day with it, you will be confused. Fortunately, there are lots of tutorial videos on Youtube, and from Blender. Blender has a relatively regular update cycle, so you will always want to look for tutorials based on the version you are using.

Blender for Software Developments

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Overall Blender is a good software to any one who willing to start to do 3D desinig works and the people like me who looking a free software to do your small 3D desinig and animation work.Highly recommend it is worth every second which you spent with it.

Pluspunten:

One of the best open source software ever I used is the Blender.I used blender for create some animations to my on going mobile app development project and it is fantastic. I am not mainly doing animation 3D modeling stuff therefore I havent enough budget to buy a software to do my desinigs.And I also need a software which I can learn it quickly and do my desinigs easily.So I found Blender.It is free and also easy to adapt to it and work with it.I need only watch few youtube video tutorials to get learn the Blender.And It has huge fanbase and community so if you are in any trouble with it, you can get help very easily.Blender has lot of pre built desinigs,projects,3D models and plugins like other fameous high end desinig softwares. So you can use those to do your project much easier.At first I thought Blender is not as functional like other high end fameous softwares.But I was wrong.It can perform same as the any payable software in its catogaery even it is a open source software.I highly recommend it for any one who looking a 3D modeling software in free.

Minpunten:

Blender is a good open source software but it has some bugs issues and those are not fixed in frequently.Developer team has done a great job in Blender but they must focus on fixing those bugs before release it. And also you have to get lot of plugins to reveal the maximum functionality of the blender and some of them are payable and those can be expensive .So I wish these functionalities must be built in to the original software. Because of that I do not recommend it for professional high end desinig works.The software can use to do small project but I am shuwer it not suitable to do high end stuff.It can do many of stuff but it is not reliable for professional works.

Amazingly powerful

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Blender has been amazing as my software for 3D animations. The power that it offers while remaining completely free is excellent.

Pluspunten:

Coming off of a trial of the expensive 3DS Max software, I was amazed at how fully-featured and - in some ways - better Blender was as a free 3D modeling and animation software. The biggest pro of Blender is that it is free and open-source. Despite this, Blender receives constant and game-changing updates. Blender's complete UI overhaul and introduction of the Cycles renderer are 2 recent examples. This makes me very confident in the software, as I know it won't become outdated any time soon.

Minpunten:

Blender has a completely different methodology for adding and manipulating objects compared to Autodesk Maya/3DS Max, SFM, etc. This isn't necessarily bad - you can get used to it, and it works fine. However, I do wish there was a preset that made Blender perform more like Autodesk or SFM. I also wish the 3D cursor could be improved, as it currently feels very finicky to position and unintuitive. Maybe a preview window or some distance information can be relayed to demonstrate where the 3D cursor is relative to my curretn viewport.

Blender is the best Free Open source 3D modeling software

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I love Blender, whenever i use it, i keep wondering how come all this power is free. and appreciate all the people who worked on it and made it possible.

Pluspunten:

Blender is a free open source software, it allows anyone to get started with 3D design and modeling very easily without paying anything, other 3D design and modeling software are very expensive. the fact that Blender is open source it make it evolve very fast and it's widely used in big projects and competes with other big names in the market of 3D design software. There are so many tutorials about blender which will help anyone to get started and learn how to use it very easily. Also blender is a huge software and it covers alot of aspects of 3D modeling and design. But be careful if you are going to use Blender you will need to decide what you need to use it for exactly because since blender covers alot of different 3d fields it's so huge no can know everything that blender can do. there are also many techniques and tools you can use to accomplish the same design or project. so to learn and use blender very easily you should focus on accomplishing your task and getting the job done, and avoid wasting your time trying to learn all the ways possible to do the same thing. as long as there is a possible way to get a design done then just do it and move on.

Minpunten:

Blender may seem very complicated and huge to new users, but it's easy to use once you start learning how to use it.

Production quality rendering and modeling for free.

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Blender works well for me building 3d models for using in Unity game development. Plugins are available with support direct export from Blender to Unity, handling model conversion and scaling for you. Extensions are simple to install and greatly expand the functionality of the software. I have worked with various 3D modeling software since the early 90's. This is hands-down the best free 3D modeling and rendering package available.

Pluspunten:

The already intuitive interface has matured over the life of this product. Sitting down with Blender after using other products entails a learning curve, but the differences are logical and functional. Support for 3rd party extensions allows for more advanced modeling and rendering supporting Production quality work an a small budget. While there are extensions for sale for use with Blender, there is also a large collection of free extensions, improving modeling, simplying complex operations on models. Support via website tutorials, online documentation as well as a large number of YouTube tutorials make learning the software extremely simple and straight forward. If you want to do something in Blender, chances are someone has documented how to do it.

Minpunten:

The learning curve is initially very difficult The interface is setup in a logical fashion but it is different enough from other 3d modeling software that you really need to take some time initially learning basic operations. Once you have basic operations and hotkeys under control, the software becomes much easier to use.

One of the best free 3D modeling softwares in the world today

5,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: This is the 3D modeling program I use. I use it with a texturing software and a rendering software and sell my 3D models I make with it. It has helped me grow my business of making 3D props for game developers.

Pluspunten:

The thing I like most if the ease of use after fully understanding what everything does. It looks intimidating and complicated if you're a new user of blender, but after looking at a few tutorials of what you want to do in it, whether it be animation, character modeling, prop modeling, whatever it may be, it becomes easier to do and to understand. You do have to learn a little bit on your own, but as far as I have been using it, since 2015, I haven't ran into anything I can't do without a little bit of googling.

Minpunten:

The thing I liked least about this software when starting out was, as I said in the pros, it is intimidating to look at when being a new user of the software. It stressed me out when I didn't know where to begin, however, this was easy to get over with some googling and a little bit of tutorials that didn't cost me a lot of time, for a big payout after I learned the software.

Great software , 0.1% issue .

4,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: You can make money from Blender after spending some lone time using it , you can design houses for people there is many websites which provides that service , and you will really just enjoy creating stuff maybe you will sell some but if you didnt you won’t feel bad about it.

Pluspunten:

Blender’s most attractive features is the user interface i mean when i first opened the software i was surprised how organized it is . It’s so easy to use i promise you will get used to it the first 3 days . I use it for almost everything i got addicted honestly everything i imagine i go into blender and just start making things up . Great product .

Minpunten:

The software is great , you may face some issues during updating , you may like some update maybe you will hate it but i recommend you stick with one version unless the other version has more useful features which rarely happens . The customer services is good but not great you may wait a fee days till you get the answer . The in-software probleme is what i got from experience the rendering process is too much demanding some times my pc got turned off while rendering , this is why I recommend using a nvidia gpu . Aside from that the software is nearly perfect compared to others.

Blender is pretty much my go-to software when it comes to creating 3D projects, 2D Art, Modeling, an

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Ever wondered what a graphic designer does? It's like creating a magic trick. I used to design things for a living and for the past 10 years I've seen a bunch of changes in the industry. Software has come and gone, and I've been around for all the good ones. At the start of my career, I wasn't making enough money to justify investing in software, so I picked up a copy of Blender and I was really happy with it.

Pluspunten:

If you're looking for an easier to use, and constantly improving 3D modeling software for free, Blender is the one for you. I know this, because I just tried it out, and all I can say is I'm impressed! With so many free software options out there, I can't imagine why anyone would use Blender over others! From its high quality, to the constant improvements and updates, Blender has me hooked. I never struggle with the software. The community is the best, and I love that it is always trying to stay ahead of the game. Keep up the good work, Blender devs!

Minpunten:

It is tough to embrace the way it works, so it takes a long time to get used to and learn to work in it. The latest versions go to improve this by making the intuitive and logical interface better and better. It is very power hungry and drains my laptop battery very fast. It is not optimized for portable devices. Should be run on desktop computers only as it heats up the system.

Blender, the best 3d modeling software on the market!

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I started using Blender at home in my personal time several years ago. I've since began working to implement its use into my job. Modeling things for posters that need to be created, modeling little characters for the news letters, things like that. Sure, maybe I put more time into it than its worth for those projects but I'm gaining more and more experience with a program I absolutely love. I cannot say enough good things about Blender. It's really been an inspiration in my life.

Pluspunten:

- Blender is free...you'd have to pay literally hundreds of dollars for anything even remotely close to Blender. - Once you learn a few hot key commands and are able to wrap your head around visualizing something in a 3D spacial environment...the world is yours. - I cant count the number of blender Tutorial channels on YouTube. Shutout to Blend Guru!! [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] (I think his name is) has the best tutorials. - So many extensions and plugins available - Did I mention its free?

Minpunten:

- This is one of the few programs I really can't find fault with.

Best 3D Modeling Software

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Blender is a great 3D modeler that can be used for many different software. Those 3D models can then be used for 3D modeler hardware, game developing software like Unreal Engine and Unity and even for making movies.

Pluspunten:

Blender is the best 3D modeling software out there. Although the UI is a bit confusing at times, I have found it quite easy to get used to. There is a massively numerous amount of add-ons for Blender that makes the job pretty easy to get done. 3D models can even be made from pictures and then can be exported to other softwares for extra editing. Blenders supports several import file types and export types. Blender can be used to create not only 3D models but also animations for those 3D models.

Minpunten:

There is honestly nothing to dislike about Blender, its free, has many additional add-ons which are also free and receives new updates monthly with even more useful features. I would highly recommend this 3D modeling software.

Opmerkingen: With Blender I explored the world of 3D animation that I always wanted to. You do not need to be an expert to get a grasp on it, there is plenty material online to learn the basics and improve from there. I have already tried other applications and I can tell that Blender is a great option to start in this field.

Pluspunten:

Blender is very versatile software, that can be used for animation, video editing/filmmaking, videogames development and 3D modeling in general. It is capable of something soft and cute as Toy Story, but also able to do something sleek as a CGI realistic Hollywood scene such as the ones seen in Deadpool. Is as poweful as the competing alternatives and completely open source, does not require a high-spec machine to work with proper stability (Although this might vary depending on the size of the files you are working with). There are many free resources available such as tutorials, pre-made models and plugins that enhance the learning experience. Even though it is full of complexities, the user interface is very user-friendly.

Minpunten:

Even though Blender is able to achieve industry standards results, these outcomes require an extra effort compared to other alternatives, other applications are able to accomplish smoothness in an almost automated way thanks to some filtering tools that Blender lacks, this has highly improved in the latest versions, but is still not as efficient as I would like. Blender’s Community is amazing, but they lack a proper Customer Support alternative that some competing products might have. (This is a very common issue with Open Source softwares).
