Undoubtedly one of the areas with more opportunities in the world of digital production and design is 3D. Since its applications not only serve as a complement or main idea of a design but also in the same creation of a graphic line that leads us to see the product both digitally and physically.
Currently we can find in the market a variety of software to make 3D, from the most expensive to the section of free programs so if your creativity has no limits there are no excuses to not become a genius at this. One of the most frequent questions we find on the Internet or what we do when we start is: What is the best 3D program? To solve this question we must be clear about what we want to do and what kind of 3D we want to produce, since each software program offers some advantages for each type of design. It is important to take into account that a good modeling must be accompanied by an engine of render and there are some that are better completed with certain programs and the needs of each one. So surely a graphic designer or artist would not use the same program as an architect or an industrial designer would use the same program as an engineer.
We are going to list some options of the best software programs that we can find nowadays and which add-ons and rendering engines are the most popular:
- CINEMA 4D
- Autodesk 3ds Max
- Lightwave 3D
- Adobe Dimension
- Indigo Renders
- Maxwell Render
When we talk about 3D, we do not necessarily always focus on making a product that can be touched or that is really physical, speaking in terms of graphic design can be used to make illustrations, teaching material, information, videos, animations, stands, characters, scenarios etc.
The impact that 3D has had on the lives of human beings has been so great that we can find a biological 3D printer that is capable of creating parts of the human body as a spare. The 3D printer of houses that is capable of printing a dozen fighters in a day without labor costs and with cheaper and recyclable materials.
Another of the strengths of 3D is the interactivity with which you can experience an almost real world, you can experience the sensation of being in a certain place without really being in it and even speculating what would happen in certain situations, such as demolition of a house or an automobile accident without sacrificing lives or material losses.
We must be clear that making a 3D project is not easy at first since you need to know the tools, techniques and advantages of the software you use as well as essential aspects of modeling, sculpting, lights, cameras to give a finial finish, it is important to define from the beginning what steps will be and to define each of the parts of the project.
