3D Coat

3DCOAT Overview

3D Coat is the one application that has all the tools needed to take a 3D idea from a block of digital clay all the way to a production ready, fully textured organic, or hard surface model.

Features of 3D Coat

Easy Texturing & PBR

  • Microvertex, Per-pixel or Ptex painting approaches
  • Realtime Physically Based Rendering viewport with HDRL
  • Smart Materials with easy set-up options
  • Multiple paint Layers. Popular blending modes. Layer groups
  • 3D Coat provides tight interaction with Photoshop
  • Texture size up to 16k
  • Fast Ambient Occlusion and Curvature map calculation
  • Rich toolset for all kind of painting tasks, and more - Fast Ambient Occlusion and Curvature map calculation


3DC-printing (short from 3D Coat for 3d printing) simplify the process of development models for 3d printing. 3D Coat has Voxel sculpting technology allows to do anything that is possible in real world without worrying too much about technical aspects. 3D Coat is easy and intuitive and can quickly start video series. 3D Coat offers short and easy instructive videos to help start creating assets asap. 3D Coat customizes the print area and sets the size of 3d printer to not exceed its dimentions. 3D Coat has dedicated export wizard which prevent all possible issues with fused deposition 3d printer type.

    3D Coat compatibility with Mac is troublesome. While modelling it gets crashed and I have to start the modelling right from the beginning. I wish there will be some auto saving feature in-built in the software. Show More

“Voxel sculpting"

I found that once you get familiar with voxel sculpting you will enjoy a lot using it. You''ll have to double the resolution of the model if you want fine detail, but that''s easily done with a click of a button. The variety of mirror tools, smoothing, pinching, et. al., enables you to create smooth even sculpts or to make hard lines if you are sculpting something like a gun or a machine.

“Presets and examples"

Another great thing I like about the interface is that you have lots of presets and examples you can use to start a modeling or texturing project. Plus, you can combine these presets in ways that get you to the desired result very quickly. The new PBR (physically based rendering) viewport makes it so easy to work with your models and see the results in real time.

“Installation and set up"

I love the installation and set up for 3-D coat. It is so simple and easy. After you install the interface has many shelves and icons but thanks to its user guide which makes the software so pleasant to use.

I am really impressed with the feature where almost all voxel shaders are PBR compatible. All the shaders have amazing parameters which includes different textures. The software has very good support of cavity and bulge is present in realtime.

I am impressed by the compatibility of the software with other such as Rhinocerous. it´s easy to import/export using .stl or .obj. The software is very easy to use and support services are really impressive.

3DCOAT Presence in 3D Animation Software
3D-Coat is a commercial digital sculpting program from Pilgway designed to create free-form organic and hard surfaced 3D models from scratch, with tools which enable users to sculpt, add polygonal topology (automatically or manually), create UV maps (automatically or manually), texture the resulting models with natural painting tools, and render static images or animated "turntable" movies. The program can also be used to modify imported 3D models from a number of commercial 3D software products by means of plugins called Applinks. Imported models can be converted into voxel objects for further refinement and for adding high resolution detail, complete UV unwrapping and mapping, as well as adding textures for displacement, bump maps, specular and diffuse color maps.
