Use advanced modeling options like polygons, spline curves and Booleans. And you can bring in existing 3D assets – you'll find a variety of import filters for third-party models and scenes.
Apply Surface Textures
Design 3D SE's texturing effects include anisotropic metallic reflections, blurred reflections and more. And it's easy to get started with the huge library of pre-made textures.
Set Up Your Scene and Lighting
Design 3D SE is like a photography studio where you have total control. Position your 3D objects and then place lights, reflection panels, cameras, backgrounds, environments and more to produce a superior final render.
Render Professional Images
Design 3D SE's renderer produces superior results that rival 3D programs costing thousands of dollars. From outlines, to toon-style rendering, to photo-realism – Design 3D SE can produce the exact look you're after with blazing speed.
Connect to Everything Else
Several 2D and 3D file formats connect you to the rest of the world. This includes Collada files tailor made for Apple's iBooks Author app, OBJ, DXF and more. You can even print to 3D with the included file formats that are accepted by popular 3D printing services.
Take Advantage of the 3D University
Strata offers a complete online training site at www.strata3duniversity.com, with tutorials covering all aspects of the Design 3D line of products. This includes first time users to 3D professionals. It's a great way to learn and is guaranteed to get you up to speed.
You're Ready to Step Up
Design 3D SE is a subset of its big brother, Design 3D CXi. Once you've mastered Design 3D SE you'll be ready to step up to CXi without missing a beat. With Design 3D CXi you'll get an expanded toolset – including powerful modeling tools, UV texturing tools, animation, special effects and more.
