Sculptris Editor's Review

For 3D modeling and design, there are so many apps to pick from noondays. From feature laden and expensive apps of Autodesk to mid level and lesser known contenders, users are spoilt for choice. However, it is also possible to use a decently powerful and feature rich app to make stunning 3D models without paying anything. Sculptris by Pixologic is a prime example of freeware 3D sculpting application that can be used to create professional looking and realistic models.

Sculptris can be downloaded from Pixologic site and it runs on PCs with Windows XP SP 2 and later versions. The app is not as resource intensive as some of its commercial contenders. However, to get the bets performance from it your PC needs to have a discrete GPU with support for OpenGL 2.0. It also supports Wacom graphics tablets.

Sculptris has a unique and straightforward interface that is unlike what you get in most contemporary 3D modeling and design apps. It does not have conventional menu based controls. The drawing tools are stacked neatly at top left section of the UI.

In Sculptris, you need to start designing figures and objects from basic geometric blocks. Using mouse controls and scrolling is supported for drawing. The illustrated buttons, knobs and sliders in the app give the UI a funky look, simulating video games. However, in the app you get specific and useful controls to tweak with various aspects of modeling basic building blocks.

When you build a 3D model in Sculptris, the experience is like working with digital clay. Creating wireframes and tweaking symmetry is simple. You can rotate the working area to look at the model from various angles. Adding background images is also possible. The model made in the app can be exported to file formats like OBJ or ZBrush GoZ.  While working with it, Sculptris does not gobble up lots of RAM or system resources.

Sculptris does not come with any help manual. In the Pixologic website, you can find some useful demo videos for using various features of the app though.

Positive Points:
•    Intuitive, uncluttered UI.
•    Easy to work with, freeware.
•    Not very taxing on resources.
•    Supports stylus tablets.

Negative Points:
•    No help manual provided.
•    Unusual UI for 3D modeling app.

Conclusion:
Sculptris is a user friendly 3D modeling and design app that can be useful for beginners to intermediate users. It has a distinctive UI with no standard menu controls. Instead, you get large visual icons for creating and editing models. The app is not as taxing on system resources as most of 3D rival apps. Using mouse controls and hotkeys is supported and you can also use Wacom tablets or similar devices. Its lack of help documentation may disappoint beginners though.

Rating: 3.5/5







Sculptris Publisher's Description

Sculptris is a fantastic, free 3D modeling and painting tool created by Dr. Petter. The Sculptris tool set is similar to what you can find in zBrush or Mudbox - with one important difference. As you sculpt, detail is added to the mesh automatically so you can worry less about the structure of your mesh and concentrate on getting the shape you want. You can round-trip to your other 3D tools with OBJ import/export, paint directly on your object, apply materials, and create your own sculpting brushes. It even works with your pressure sensitive tablet.
