6 Meritorious Free Linux Modelers
Linux offers a rich platform for anyone with an artistic
inclination. With low cost hardware, quality open source
software, and an ounce of talent, artists can produce
professional-looking computer graphics.
There is a relatively small range of open source software that
offers the ability of rendering
images with Linux. Rendering is the process of taking a 3D model and
displaying it as a two-dimensional image. Unfortunately, some of the
applications have not seen any development in recent years, abandoned
by their developers with no one coming forward to step into their
shoes. Nevertheless, there are still some high quality, open source
Linux modelers which are worth investigating.
This article identifies 6 modelers that stand out from the
others. They offer a wide range of modeling tools, mesh editing, group
editing, Boolean modeling operations, isosurface modeling, and much
more. The software featured here are all versatile
and powerful tools for artists.
Now, let's explore the 6 modelers at hand.
For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description
with an in-depth analysis of its features, a screenshot of the software
in action, together with links to relevant resources and reviews.
