Wings 3D - A Polygon Modeler

Wings 3D is a subdivision modeller with an user interface that is easy to use for both beginners and advanced users (inspired by Nendo and Mirai from Izware).

Wings 3D - A Polygon Modeler

Standard tools such as Move, Scale, Rotate, Extrude, Bevel, Bridge, Cut, and Weld.

Advanced tools including: Sweep, Plane Cut, Circularise, Intersect, Bend, Shear, and Inset.

More Features
  • Magnets and Magnet Masking
  • Virtual Mirror for symmetrical modeling
  • Tweak and Sculpt
  • Wide range of Selection and Mesh tools
  • UV mapper, Vertex Colors, Materials, and Lights
Wings 3D gets its name from the Winged Edge Data Structure (WEDS). This is the data structure used to store the adjacency relationships between edges, faces, and vertices in a Wings 3D model..

Wings 3D offers a wide range of modeling tools, a customizable interface, support for lights and materials, and a built-in AutoUV mapping facility.

Quick and Dirty Wings3D Part Creation for KiCAD 3D Viewer
This quick and dirty Wings3D creation micro-tutorial covers creating a 3D part in Wings3D and exporting that part to KiCAD.

MicroPython Board Wings 3D

Jon's Place: Custom MicroPython Board

"KiCad can also show you a 3D rendering of what your board would look like, but you have to supply 3D models of any custom parts you include. My board has a whole pile of parts that I had to create my own footprint for (usb connector, uSD connector, all the Hirose DF-13 2, 3, 4, and 6-pin connectors, etc)."
