Get all the tools you need to realize your design vision. With the Strata Design Suite, you get the ability to capture real objects as 3D models, build out precision CAD models and production drawings, design free-form objects, produce photoreal images and animations, and even produce virtual and augmented reality presentations – all at one affordable price.
Foto 3D allows you to use any digital camera or smartphone to capture real-world objects as fully textured 3D models. It’s ideal for difficult to model objects like organic shapes, soft forms and hand made items. The included Photoshop plug-in makes model creation even easier. Perfect for developing packaging, games, illustrations, online catalogs and more. Bring the models in to the other products in the Strata Design Suite to further expand the possibilities.
Cobalt’s flexible 3D modeling matches professional power with speed and ease of use in our unique Organic Workflow design process, and provides on-demand, dimensionally constrained and equation-driven parametrics that make creating variations on a design faster and easier than ever before in 3D design software. Move beyond conceptual design to analyzing, marketing, manufacturing and sales. Cobalt’s precise 3D data guarantees accurate drawings and compelling marketing images. Generate renderings for sales, training and promotions, export data for fabrication, or send shop drawings to manufacturing.
Design 3D gives you a familiar, free flowing interface that includes the power to complete professional quality projects. It’s ideal for users new to 3D and who have used design tools from companies like Adobe. Quick start templates, libraries, predefined effects, backgrounds, environments and more allow designers to create complex scenes in minutes. With a user interface and tools that are familiar to today’s 2D designers, you invest your time learning 3D design concepts rather than a new design paradigm.
Design 3D can bring in your projects from Foto 3D and Cobalt to put together high-quality renderings and animations – as well as output for web 3D, VR and AR. You can even go out to 3D printers to get a physical copy of your project.
Spaces provides solutions to present and design in virtual and augmented reality. Spaces VR allows you to explore your design ideas and create immersive virtual demonstrations for clients, customers and coworkers. Use pre-made spaces to present your design ideas in virtual reality – or create your own spaces that you can walk directly into. See your projects from Foto 3D, Cobalt and Design 3D in VR – as if you’re holding your design right in your hand – or even walk into your design projects.
*Publish to Spaces VR from either Mac or Windows version of Design 3D. Spaces VR requires HTC Vive VR headset and compatible Windows computer.
Strata 3D University gives you hundreds of hours of video tutorials, templates and training exercises so you can become an expert in no time. Projects that focus on packaging design, product design, space-layout and more are included.
