Create your own models using your imagination, import existing models, or import in 2D illustrations or digital photos to generate 3D models. Light your scene, arrange your cameras - then render or export for 3D printing! Use 3D modeling tools to build organic, curved models as well as mechanical and architectural designs. Shade gives you the tools; you provide the imagination! Shade is scalable to projects of any size - great art, film or game content development.
