3DCOAT in 3D Animation Software

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

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
  • 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

Digital Sculpting

Voxel (volumetric) sculpting key features:

  • No topological constraints. Sculpt as you would with Clay
  • Complex boolean operations. Fast kit bashing workflow

Traditional sculpting offers you such powerful technology as:

  • Adaptive dynamic tesselation (Live Clay)
  • Dozens of fast and fluid sculpting brushes
  • Boolean operations with crisp edges

Ultimate Retopo Tools

  • Auto-retopology (AUTOPO) with user-defined edge loops
  • Fast and easy-to-use manual Retopo tools
  • Possibility to import reference mesh for retopologization
  • Use your current low-poly mesh as your retopo mesh
  • Retopo groups with color palette for better management
  • Advanced baking settings dialog

Fast & Friendly UV Mapping

  • Professional toolset for creating and editing UV-sets
  • Native Global Uniform (GU) unwrapping algorithm
  • Multiple UV-sets support and management
  • Support ABF, LSCM, and Planar unwrapping algorithms
  • Individual islands tweaking
  • Lastly, it is fast, easy, and fun to use.

USP :

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

“Presets and examples"

(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)5
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"

(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)5
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.

“Voxel sculpting"

(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)5
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.

“Realtime"

(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)5
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.

“Support"

(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)5
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.
