  • Description

    Wings 3D is a free and open source polygon mesh subdivision modeller ideally suited for modeling and texturing low to medium density polygon meshes. It has a wide range of very effective tools optimised for these tasks hidden behind its ‘minimalistic’ interface.

    Designed as a stand-alone modeller, without animation or ‘proper’ rendering facilities it should not be confused with software that does include such features – although its modelling capabilities stand extremely favourable comparison with equivalent sections of such applications – whether free or commercial.

    The use of ‘context-sensitive’ menus is the reason for its sparse look, whereby tool menus relevant to the current selection mode are only displayed when needed – so no ‘greyed out’ options.

    Wings’ toolset often provides the user with many different workflow options for modeling and thus allows considerable flexibility of technique within its ‘box-modelling’ / ‘winged edge’ paradigm. (one example being the provision of a ‘hole’ material, thus allowing wings models to be exported to a wide range of other apps.)
