Aartform Releases Curvy 3D 1.5
November 6, 2006

Aartform is pleased to announce the launch of Curvy 3D 1.5, an easy and
fast sculpting program for Windows. By focusing on the artistic skills
of drawing and painting it is surprisingly easy for novice 3D users, and
incredibly fast for experienced 3D artists to create natural 3D models.
Curvy 3D is particularly designed for 2D artists with tablets who like
to draw or sketch and desire to add some 3D content to their illustrations.

"It is very quick to learn", says Simon de Rivaz, the developer of
Curvy. "Artists who used to slave for days over shapes in technical 3D
programs are now creating characters, monsters, machines and other props
in just a few hours or even minutes. Curvy hides the confusing technical
side of modelling so you are free to be creative without having to edit
vertices or setup UVs".

Curvy 3D v1.5 brings new speed to 3D modelling by letting you draw
shapes straight into 3D. Create whole models with just a few strokes.
Sculpting 3D models for art and games is quick and hassle free. Colours
and shapes are easy to work with using Curvy's artist friendly tools.
You can sketch and paint colours, forms and bumps directly onto your 3D
models, and then export models and textures for use in other 3D software.

If you can sketch and paint you can use Curvy 3D to create 3D models
simply and painlessly. Now getting your ideas into 3D is easier than
ever. An interactive demo is available at

* What's new in Curvy 3D 1.5

The latest version of Curvy supports more import and exports than before
to allow better cross application modelling with Curvy. Obj is supported
for both import and export and can be used for Poser clothes and props
or to render in other popular 3D applications.

Resolution limits have been raised for all models and textures to suit
the latest round of graphics cards.

New curve and warp tools allow tighter control and fun distortion of
models. It is now very easy to re-shape a curve such as object profiles
to fine tune or change its shape.

Also Curvy 3D 1.5 ships with an extensive lighting library to help setup
scenes with dramatic and interesting effects.

* Availability & Pricing

Curvy 3D 1.5 is priced at $85 and is available as a download of about 4 MB.
