3D RAD - Free 3D Game Maker: Learn How To Make a 3D Game FAST !

With 3D RAD - the hottest free 3d game maker available - you can bring life to your 3d models
and learn how to make a 3d game in a fraction of the time it would take with other tools 
Getting started with 3D Rad

This five-minute tutorial will show you why 3D Rad is the ideal 3d 

development software for CG artists and non-coders!

Complete documentation showing you how to make a 3d game with

 3D Rad is also available!

A page I strongly recommend, if you are new to 3D Rad, is the 3d 

game editor overview.

Modeling for 3D Rad

The official tutorial about importing,
 rendering and enabling physics for 
your own 3d models. Feel 
the power of 3D Rad as you learn
 how to make a 3d game!

Physics in a box

You can enable collision detection and realisti
c physics for your 3d models by simply importing them to your 3D Rad project (no coding!). These 'bodies' can then be combined visually with working joints, wheels, springs, forces and even airfoils, to create any sort of system (cars, aircraft, ragdolls, machines).

Quality rendering

To make setting up eye-catching s
cenes easier, 3D Rad comes with unified shaders designed to smoothly, pre-made natural environment elements, a snap-together road system and many useful resources provided by the community.

Artificial Intelligence

Adding CPU controlled cars to your 
 project is as easy as 'plugging' a special object to your virtual cars!  Simple character A.I. can be achieved by visually combining objects. For more complex artificial intelligence behaviors you have powerful script functions allowing you, for instance, to scan an area for , test meshes for visibility and so on.

Network, Multiplayer

3D Rad includes sample projects demonstr
ating how to render, in real-time, on a remotely connected PC, a  processed on the local machine, how to exchange textual strings between connected computers and how to download artwork from remote server to update the 3d world, run-time.

Sound Effects, Music

Adding high-quality audio effects to 
your projects is straightforward. Sound files in .wav or .ogg format can be either used as 3d sound emitters in virtual space or as 'global' stereo sounds typically used for background music and interface sfx.

Game examples

Using this free 3d game maker software,
 sometimes I make small games to test 3D Rad features. They are free to download and play. Compiled to stand-alone programs with 3D Rad, they are small examples of what you can achieve!

Your 3d games in a webpage!

Compile projects to a format that can 
be embedded into a webpage at your website! 

Your games as advertisement platforms!

Unique technology allows you to update
 textures and 3d models while your game is played, and open a webpage when an item is clicked. The updated resources can be advertisement downloaded on-the-fly from your own website or from a link provided an advertising agency. 

Ready-to-use resources!

3D Rad addons are resources that don't 
require neither coding nor modeling. Users can just add them to their projects, configure them and go!

Whatever you create with 3D Rad can be exported as an addon that others can
 use in their projects, in a very productive way.
