3D modeller

Moonlight3D is a modeller for 3-dimensional art. It supports Nurbs- and Bezier curve based modelling and many basic shapes (such as Box, Sphere, Cylinder, Plane, Cone and Torus) as well as many texture, material and light parameters, that can be rendered using the inbuilt raytracing-renderer. You can even create objects using Extrusion, Revolution or Skin-, Sweep-, Soft- and BiRail-Surfaces. You can import models using the DXF and 3DS standards, and export to RIB, DXF, VRML, Rayshade, and POV.
