 Item Detail
AMAPI 3D 6.0, Creative 3D Modeler  Name:
AMAPI 3D 6.0, Creative 3D Modeler

Product Information

AMAPI 3D offers an impressive range of advanced modeling tools and technologies. NURBS and polyhedral curves and surfaces, generalized extrusion and sweeping, Coons and Gordon surfaces, subdivision and smoothing tools, bevels and chamfers, solid Boolean operations. AMAPI 3D is the modeling tool that meets the demand of professional designers and graphic artists.

AMAPI 3D offers an innovative approach to 3D modeling. No other modeler delivers the Natural Design Interface of AMAPI 3D, putting every tool within instant reach, and making it possible to work with both hands, rapidly finding and using the modeling functions that designers and illustrators need. With extremely fast 3D manipulation and real-time feedback, AMAPI 3D simplifies the creation and editing of complex geometric shapes.

AMAPI 3D is a complete and versatile 3D creation toolbox, containing numerous powerful tools that can be combined together to achieve all kind of creation. The dual interface of AMAPI 3D, both intuitive and accurate, enables visual and precise creation at the same time. AMAPI 3D doesn't impose a working method and lets the user define his own creation process according to his needs, from a quick visual result to a complete and accurate model creation.

Features and Details

Complete Set of Geometric Primitives
Numerous 3D primitives like parallepipeds, cones and cylinders, spheres and super-ellipsoids, cubes and Platonic solids, Height Maps (relief from grayscale images) can be the very first step in the making of a very elaborate 3D object. For added flexibility each 3D primitive offered by AMAPI 3D can be built either as NURBS surfaces or Polyhedral meshes.

Advanced Surface Construction Tools
AMAPI 3D's vast array of advanced and adaptive surface construction tools allows multiple combinations between sections, profiles and contours for unlimited creativity. Because all 3D objects are not made alike, AMAPI 3D offers multiple construction methods allowing users to choose the most adapted and efficient one for every model they conceive and create.

Subdivision and Smoothing Tools
AMAPI 3D offers a complete set of smoothing tools. Interpolation or subdivision surfaces can be applied over the basic structure of an object thus dynamically increasing the density of its mesh and applying curvatures on sharp edges and corners. Among many features, these tools give the ability to globally smooth the surface of an object while defining and maintaining specific break angles and tension areas.

Powerful Modeling Tools
AMAPI 3D has advanced modeling tools that let you sculpt your objects with a set of high-level methods, creating complex effects and modifications in a snap: Thickness and Offset surfaces, Filleting Tool to create bevels and chamfers, Boolean operations, Polygon reducer, Bump and Unbump, and more.

NURBS and Polyhedral Modeling
AMAPI 3D's entire set of modeling tools is based on a hybrid technology that allows them to be used on both NURBS and polyhedral models. This is another reason why AMAPI 3D is such a flexible and powerful modeling application. As a result, construction and modeling tools naturally adapt themselves to the type of object that is being manipulated, either on the Control Polygon in the case of a NURBS model or directly on the wireframe mesh in case of a polyhedral surface.

An Immersive Workspace
AMAPI 3D offers an innovative approach to 3D modeling by simulating the efficient and simple surroundings of a sculptor's workshop. Navigation is made easy by the display of a virtual 3D workbench further assisted by a background grid that provides implicit information about an object's size, location and orientation.

The Natural Design Interface
AMAPI 3D gives instant access to every construction and modeling tool thanks to three floating toolboxes that are accessible by waving the pointer to the right of the screen. By cycling through these toolboxes, selecting a particular tool is as simple as picking it up, using it and then dropping it off. Because 3D requires room, as soon as a tool has been selected, the toolbox disappears leaving the entire monitor space free for use.

Intuitive and Precise
AMAPI 3D, while not cluttering the screen with multiple and tedious numeric dialogs, offers the absolute accuracy required by high-end 3D modeling by alternating visual and numerical inputs. On the bottom-left corner of the screen, a smart and compact data window is displayed that dynamically gathers the numerical values related to the current operation. Useful information such as the coordinates or the size of an object can be visually controlled at any time and edited with a simple stroke of the Tab key.

High-Quality Hybrid Rendering
In addition to an impressive range of modeling tools, AMAPI 3D's proprietary rendering module offers a complete set of rendering features combined in a rich, comprehensive and real-time workspace. Based on a hybrid engine, this versatile engine handles Phong, Ray-Tracing and Non-Realistic rendering and offers major features such as 3D and 2D textures, picture mapping, multi-layering, transparencies, reflections, refractions and soft-shadows.

25 Import / Export Format
Because it reads and writes major 3D and 2D file formats, AMAPI 3D can be a perfect modeling companion for many other specialized 3D rendering and animation software packages. AMAPI 3D is also the choice of many designers using STL or IGES, two formats used by milling machines for rapid prototyping.

Numerous Additional Features
In order to complement its core modeling capacities, AMAPI 3D also offers a vast array of features that are a welcome addition to the 3D designer's toolbox: An advanced measurement and printing module, including hidden-line, printing, surfaces and volume calculation; A unique and powerful unfolding tool; Direct support of the Immersion MicroScribe digitizer for physical data input; An easy-to-use, entry-level animation module, which allows any user to quickly create basic but terrific animations.
