When you're ready to push the limits of 3D design and animation, and get the most out of your Mac, this is the software for you. Design 3D CXi is our professional-level 3D software that delivers end-to-end power for the entire 3D design workflow. It's an essential addition to any creative designer's toolbox and is perfect for interactive and motion design, product and packaging design, graphic design and illustration, and environmental design.

  • Model Anything
    Design 3D offers an extremely powerful and friendly modeling toolset and environment for manipulating your polygons, splines, and primitives into any 3D object or scene you can imagine. If you're working with existing 3D assets, Strata Design 3D CXi utilizes a host of filters and options to accurately import third-party 3D models and scenes.

  • Texture With Precision
    In the world of 3D, texturing can be the key component in creating convincing final renderings. With a powerful UV Editing environment, Strata Design 3D CXi makes it easy to create and manipulate surface textures with precision and beautifully accurate results.

  • Compose Your Scene
    Design 3D CXi makes it easier to control your scene's environment than any photography studio you could imagine. Position your 3D objects and then place lights, reflection panels, cameras, backgrounds, environments and more to produce a superior final render or animation for your design project.

  • Bring 3D to Life
    With simple through advanced animation features that include keyframing, scripting, inverse kinematics, visible paths and more, it's easy to generate amazingly convincing animations. You can even combine your computer generated 3D scenes with real-world video footage with Design 3D's MatchMotion feature combined with software like Pixel Farm's PF Hoe.

  • Top Quality Rendering
    When you're ready to produce your final image or video, Design 3D's renderer produces superior results that rival top 3D programs, costing thousands of dollars. From outlines, to toon-style rendering to photo-realism, Design 3D CXi can produce the exact look you're after with blazing speed. After all, it's all about the final results and Design 3D CXi delivers.

  • Get Educated
    Strata Design 3D CXi is backed by a complete online training site at, with tutorials covering all aspects of the software for first time users to 3D professionals. It's a great way to learn and is guaranteed to get you up to speed in a hurry.
