Founded in 2000, DAZ 3D is a 3D content and software company specializing in providing rigged 3D human models, associated accessory content and software to the prosumer market. Originally part of Zygote, a general purpose, application-agnostic 3D content broker, DAZ 3D split off in 2000 to focus on supplying content specific to the Poser market. After the lukewarm response to Poser 5, DAZ 3D took the initiative to create their own 3D posing/animation package, DAZ Studio, while still continuing to make content compatible with both applications for several years. DAZ 3D also sells third party applications usable with their products.

Main applications[edit]

  • DAZ Studio - DAZ's free application for posing, rendering, and animating articulated 3D figures.
  • Hexagon_(software) - a 3D mesh modeler originally developed by eovia.
  • Carrara_(software) - a general purpose 3D modeler/animation package acquired from eovia in 2006.
  • Bryce_(software) - a fractal-based landscape modeler and renderer acquired by DAZ 3D in 2004. Discontinued in 2007.
