Strata Sculpt 3D

Virtual clay, sculpting, modeling and 3D painting application.

Sculpt 3D is a web based app that allows you to model 3D objects as if they were virtual clay. You can start with simple objects like spheres and cubes – or you can import your own models into Sculpt 3D. Push, pull, twist and inflate the surface – among many other modeling options. Sculpt 3D also allows you to paint on the surface. The app even supports pressure sensitive pens for the ultimate control. When you’re done with your project you can export the model and bring it into Strata Design 3D, Spaces VR – or whatever your favorite 3D application is.

Strata Sculpt 3D Hotkeys

• The ‘~’ character means “while pressed”.
Note: You may need to click in the right side control panel, and then back into the modeling view in order to get hotkeys to function

You control the camera when you click on the canvas (but not on the model surface), or with mouse right click.
Double click on the canvas will reset the camera, double click on the model will focus on the clicked area.
