Cheetah3D is a lean, fast and elegant 3D modeling, rendering and animation package for MacOS X with an easy learning curve.

Moreover, Cheetah3D is a great tool that offers many useful features from powerful polygon editing over advanced subdivision modeling to HDRI and radiosity renderings.

The Cheetah3D app provides the most useful features you need to get the job done, and organises them within a beautifully elegant user interface that's powerful, intuitive and quick to work with.

Performing truly advanced operations in Cheetah3D will seem like second nature very rapidly. Cheetah3D provides a level of productivity that you will be hard pressed to equal in software ten times the cost!
