Cheetah3D fully supports Retina displays

Cheetah3D is a powerful and easy to learn 3D modeling, rendering and animation application which was developed from the ground up for OS X. So jump right into the world of Computer Generated Imaging. Create 3D artwork for your next iPhone game or make your first animated character.

  • Modeling
    With a full set of polygon, subdivision surface and spline modeling tools you can focus on creating; safe in the knowledge that Cheetah3D has a breadth of features for the task. Cheetah3D makes modeling in 3D a breeze for new and experienced users alike.

  • UV editing
    So you've modeled a character or new product design, it's time to get decorating and Cheetah3D is ready to get to work. With a powerful UV editor combined with a node based materials system you can paint and texture every model you make......

  • Animation
    Character rigging is part of the seamless animation system of Cheetah3D where just about every property of an object can be animated. Breathe life into a character for your next iPhone game or animate an architectural fly-through by the powerful animation system built into Cheetah3D.

  • Dynamics
    Cheetah3D smoothly integrates the industrial strength Bullet physics engine to simulate rigid body and soft body dynamics. No matter if you want to spill a bowl of marbles on the floor or simulate a waving flag in the wind. Cheetah3D can handle it with just a few mouse clicks.

  • Rendering
    Raytracing, Global Illumination, HDRI, Caustics and much much more means Cheetah3D can produce stunning images and animations using advanced techniques .... Create amazing pictures with Cheetah3D: mesmerize friends, colleagues and clients.

  • Scripting
    An easy to learn yet powerful Javascript API allows you to extend the feature set of Cheetah3D by custom object types, file loaders or tools.

  • File exchange
    Import and export of 3D models and animations using popular file types (fbx, stl, 3ds, obj etc.) enables sharing of content produced with Cheetah3D. Images and animations made in Cheetah3D can also be shared using a wide range of popular image and movie file types (jpg, tiff, png, mov etc.).

  • Workflow
    Cheetah3D integrates perfectly into the workflow of many popular Mac apps. With Cheetah3D you can create stunning 3D models for iBooks Author or many popular game engines.
