Daz Productions, Inc., commonly known as 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. It was originally part of Zygote Media Group, a general purpose, application-agnostic 3D content broker, and split off as "Digital Art Zone"[2] in 2000 to focus on supplying content for the Poser market.

After acquiring other modeling tools, DAZ 3D created their own 3D posing/animation package, DAZ Studio, while still continuing to make content compatible with Poser for several years. DAZ 3D also sells third party applications usable with their products.


  • DAZ Studio, a free application for posing, rendering, and animating articulated 3D figures.
  • Hexagon, a 3D mesh modeler originally developed by eovia, acquired by DAZ in 2006.
  • Carrara, a general purpose 3D modeler/animation package also acquired from eovia in 2006.
  • Bryce, a fractal-based landscape modeler and renderer acquired from Corel by DAZ in 2004.
