Building your 3D skill set using Bryce3D

Bryce 3D is a low cost modeling application that has been around for many years but only recently got proper mesh export tools. There is also now a free non-commercial version .  This Wednesday I will be offering a free intro class on Bryce 3D using shared desktop.

To attend install the Bryce software and email me at with Bryce3D in the subject line.

Topics we will be covering:
  • Boolean Operations
  • Grouping
  • Alignment Tools
  • Group Color Codes
  • Mesh Export
  • Image Rendering
  • Materials Lab
  • Lighting
  • Sky Lab
  • Navigation/Camera Controls
  • Labeling Pieces
  • Selecting Objects
A second class will be in October covering:
  • Metaballs
  • Importing Objects
  • Importing Textures
  • Unity3D/Jibe Import
You need no prior experience to take this class.  I will make sure everyone moves along together and at the end of the class you will be conquering mesh design and more with confidence.

Some examples of what you can make with Bryce 3D can be found here .  Take advantage of this free dry run and add Mesh to your virtual world toolkit!


  1. Thanks to Doug Danforth for pointing out the free Bryce3D activation code on the download page or use this:


  2. is the link to follow tomorrow at 2PM ET. This works on Mac or PC. It is a small Java app so install should be little or none for most. Please add me on Skype for the call pcmash or send me your phone number and I will add you into the call.

  3. Darn. I did not see this message until the morning after the class.

    Will there be another one? If so, when?
