*** Anniversary Sale ends soon - Get 30% off! ***

We're celebrating anniversaries for the Mac, Myst and Strata - and there's still time to save - but the party is almost over!

Built on our older code base, you’ll still find this a capable 3D modeling and rendering app. For more advanced features like Boolean & skin modeling, anisotropic reflections, faster rendering – and more – choose Design 3D SE 7. If you want to add animation with features like motion blur, shatter, explode – plus advanced subdivision surfaces – choose Design 3D CXi. Click on the icons to the right for more info on our other products.

If you're new to 3D and want to get started with a product that's easy to use and very affordable, and you don't feel you need all the cool features in our other products – and if you don't mind using an older, more dated interface – then this version of Design 3D SE might be right for you. You'll still find lots of great features, and once you learn this user interface you'll have an easy time moving up to Design 3D SE 7 or Design 3D CXi.

Some of the features in this version of Design 3D SE include:

√ Modeling
• Polygonal Modeling
• Bezier Surfaces
• Extrude

Customer Reviews

Great but...

This program is great but, the video tutorials are all at additional expense. I was looking for a simple program to do some simple design work with that I could get up and running with quickly. I'm very good at using graphic design software, of course this is not for graphics, but I just want a quick way to get up and learn the basic tools. But going to the developers website all of the video training is at additional charge I have to become a member and pay a fee to learn how to use the software. This is discouraging. I have no idea how good the videos are. I just want to get up and going quickly with little fuss I wish they made the basic training on the videos accessible to people who bought the software. Doesn't seem like too much to ask. In the trash bin it goes.
