3D objects are among the most complicated things you can work with on the computer, especially if you have to design them from scratch. An exhaustive amount of work is required even for the most basic polygon mesh.
Although Blacksmith3D-Pro does not allow you to create new models, it does enable you to bring extensive modifications to existing ones, by using a wide variety of transformation tools.
Transform, reshape, morph and paint 3D objects
Once you load the desired model into the application, you can start modifying its shape and colors to fit your new requirements. Blacksmith3D-Pro provides you with a wide range of deformation tools, such as bulge chisel, resurface chisel or unwarp chisel. There is also the “hammer” category, which contains the move, rotate and rescale utilities.
To bring more artistic modification to the objects, you can make use of the paint tools. Among them, you can find the clone, retouch and reshape brushes, which can be used to esthetically modify your model.
Create textures from personal images and subdivide objects
Textures are vital to the final look of your object, since they usually contain the visible colors and the finer details of the model. Blacksmith3D-Pro enables you to create texture tiles from your pictures and apply them on the object at hand to enhance their visual appearance.
The subdivide tool is a bit more advanced and requires more experience to handle properly, especially since it is a powerful feature than can radically and permanently change the shape of your object. The application allows you to set the maximum number of polygons that can be used for the subdivision and whether to enable smooth vertices or not, but it also warns you about the dangers of using it without performing a backup first.
Blacksmith3D-Pro is a powerful utility with a comprehensive range of transformation tools. Although it is primarily aimed at experienced 3D artists, it can be successfully used by beginners as well, thanks to the intuitive interface and extensive documentation available.
