Though not a classic 3D modeling software, like Poser it is a character creation tool. MakeHuman is the only free character creation tool that we know of. It started out as a plugin for Blender and has since become an independent application.
With MakeHuman it really is child’s play to generate 3D files of humans. As this free 3D modeling software allows you to manipulate what is called a “base mesh” – an ageless, genderless humanoid 3D file. You rapidly flesh out a distinctive and convincing character by sliding thoughtfully organized bars (gender, face, torso, arms, and legs). The customizations are truly comprehensive, you can literally manipulate your character down to the tips of the hair.
Luckily, your creations don’t have to stay nude. There are many different options of clothing available, from casual to chic. But we are only scratching at the surface. As this free 3D modeling software includes extensive rigging options for game development and computer animation alike. Even the face is set up with enough controls to achieve decent facial expressions. This wealth of features enables you to generate convincing 3D models in a breeze.
MakeHuman is also a great tool to create a mesh that you then refine in 3D sculpting tools like ZBrush. For Blender users, MakeHuman offers a dedicated tool that facilitates the exchange between the two. It should be apparent, that this is one of the best free 3D modeling software of its kind.
