3D modelling environment for the RenderMan Interface

Ayam is a free 3D modelling environment for the RenderMan interface. Ayam features at a glance:

  • RIB (RenderMan Interface Bytestream) export and import.
  • Support for NURB curves and (trimmed) NURB surfaces, Boxes, Quadrics (Sphere, Disk, Cylinder, Cone, Hyperboloid, Paraboloid, and Torus), CSG, MetaBalls, Polygonal and Subdivision Meshes.
  • NURBS modelling includes normal and interpolating curves as well as extrude, revolve, sweep, skin, gordon, and birail objects with caps, holes, and bevels.
  • Custom objects that may freely implement their representations (using OpenGL and RIB) and even small GUIs to edit their type specific parameters may be written by the user and dynamically loaded at runtime.
  • Scripting interface: Tcl.
  • Miscellaneous: instancing, arbitrary number of modeling views, object clipboard, independent property clipboard, console, n-level undo.
