Free 3D modeling, animation, and rendering system.

What is K-3D for Mac

K-3D is free-as-in-freedom 3D modeling and animation software. It combines flexible plugins with a visualization pipeline architecture, making K-3D a versatile and powerful tool for artists.

Easy
K-3D's interface uses your platform's look-and-feel, and it's consistent with the applications you already know. New artists will find K-3D easy to understand, and professionals feel right at home. K-3D is intuitive, consistent, and discoverable.

Powerful
K-3D features procedural and parametric workflows. Properties can be adjusted interactively and results appear immediately. The powerful, node-based visualization pipeline allows more possibilities than traditional modifier stacks or histories. Selection flows from one modifier to the next.
An advanced undo/redo system ensures you can always go back, and the pioneering undo tree means you can always go forward, even where other programs lose the ability to redo.
Industrial-strength standards form the foundation on which K-3D builds - including native RenderMan(TM) support that integrates tightly with the K-3D user interface.

Flexible
Get all the power of a node-based visualization pipeline: connect anything to anything else. K-3D gives you the freedom to create combinations never before seen.
Work on one side of a model, show the other side mirrored, and see the end result welded together as a subdivision surface in realtime. Using K-3D, complex workflows are easy to create and understand. Go back, modify the beginning of a workflow, and watch as changes propagate automatically to the end.

Free
K-3D is Free Software. Run it on your choice of platform. Adapt it for any purpose. Receive it at no cost. Share it with your friends. All of the K-3D source code is available under the GNU General Public License.

Version: 0.8.0.1
v0.8.0.3 is the current pre-compiled version, from 2013-01. v0.8.0.6 is the current DIY compile version from 2016-09. It is a 64-bit X11 application. As such, it does not have a macOS compliant GUI. The result is flaky. Persistence usually provides results. But playing with v0.8.0.3, you'll find some listed menu items don't actually exist, such as Help/K-3D Guide, Release Notes and online Help. - - The first time you boot it, don't use it as it will act oddly. Quit it and Open it again. This is a common behavior of X11 apps. One helpful hint: Use the Option (alt) key to access menu items via their underlined letter. But don't expect the sub-menu items to respond the same way. As such, the app is considerably user-hostile, has a massive learning curve and contains some documented bugs. There is a wiki at http://wiki.k-3d.org. But it is out-of-date and missing all its video assets. If you dig around on YouTube, you'll find a number of sort-of useful video tutorials. - - Taking everything into account, I'd suggest Blender instead.
