Questions Frequently Asked

What are the different types of 3D modeling software?

3D modeling software are different according to their applications. Mostly, they are either used for technical or artistic applications. Technical applications include engineering and design. Artistic applications include abstract arts, animations, and game assets design.

What is parametric 3D modeling?

Parametric 3D modeling is the approach to build 3D models based on logical and geometrical arrangements. It is the 3D modeling approach used by most 3D modeling software that caters to technical applications like engineering and design.
