Editors' reviewEven a brief look at the interface gives you a sense for the size and power of this formidable 3D graphics application. AC3D takes the best features from standard image-editing programs and adapts them to the 3D world. You can select a group, object, surface, or vertex, and edit them all. When you choose an action, such as rotation, the interface displays additional features, such as the ability to set an axis and manually enter degrees.
You can add color and apply effects to objects and backgrounds. Creating 3D models is a complex business, and if you're new to it, you'll need to spend some time learning the tools. Even so, we can recommend AC3D to anyone who wants to generate 3D graphics for games, visualizations, or just about any other purpose you could think of.
