AutoDesSys has announced bonzai3D, a 3D modeling program for Mac and Windows systems. The application provides tools that are designed for quickly building 3D models, with the option to transform the creations into accurate construction drawings for further development. Real time Booleans are supported, along with NURBS curves and surfaces, OpenGL rendering and dynamic graphic editing.
Users can add shadows, transparencies and textures, with over 200 texture maps and a content library for trees, furniture, doors and windows. The software is compatible with Google Earth and SketchUp, along with 20 additional import/export formats. While learning functions, video tutorials can be watched from within the program.
Bonzai3D will be formally introduced and previewed at the American Institute of Architects convention in San Francisco (Booth #1639) from April 30th through May 2nd.
