Martin Wengenmayer releases Cheetah3D 6.2

Friday, February 1st, 2013 | Posted by Jim Thacker


Developer Martin Wengenmayer has released a free update to Cheetah3D, his low-cost Mac-only 3D app.

Key features in Cheetah3D 6.2 include support for Angle-Based Flattening (ABF), the UV unwrapping algorithm that is becoming standard in 3D software, including 3ds Max, Blender, Cinema 4D and the new LightWave 11.5.

The old LSCM-based unwrapping system has also been overhauled, as have the Ring and Loop selection tools. According to Wengenmayer, the tools “now offer auto-highlighting, support for partial edge loops and rings, are much faster, also work in point mode and, last but not least, also offer support for border loops”.

Cheetah3D 6.2 is available now for Mac OS X 10.6 and above. New licences cost $99.
