Cheetah 3D first 3D application on new Mac App store

Cheetah 3D first professional 3d application on Apple’s new Mac App Store


Architosh is recognizing that Cheetah 3D, developed in Germany by Martin Wengenmayer, is the first professional 3D application available on the new Apple Mac App store. The Mac App store went live yesterday and we spent some time on it investigating its offerings. Congrats to Martin for offering such a top-notch product offering to this new method of obtaining quality Mac software.

“We are proud to offer Cheetah 3D on the Mac App Store from day one,” said Dr. Martin Wengenmayer, lead developer and creator of Cheetah 3D.

“The goal of Cheetah 3D was always to make the entry into the world of 3D modeling and animation as easy as possible and the Mac App Store makes this more possible than ever before.”

Cheetah 3D version 5.6.1 is a native Mac OS X-only application that has received high praise in the market. Cheetah 3D features an elegant, easy to use user-interface offering the user an array of powerful tools. It offers powerful surface and solids modeling, including subdivision surfaces. It offers joint-based character animation and UV unwrapping, texture painting and a powerful global illumination renderer. Cheetah 3D is extendable through Javascript scripting and supports many common file formats for data import/export via Autodesk FBX, 3DS and Collada, to name a few.

Cheetah 3D is available on the Mac App Store for 149.99.USD.
