Blacksmith3D is a 3D painting and sculpting program that is easy-to-use and creates high-quality 3D art. 3D artists who are using popular modeling, animation and rendering software find it simple to integrate into their pipeline. 2D artists who are looking to experiment with 3D software find Blacksmith3D intuitive since it has a standard 2D paint application look and feel.

  • High-resolution texture painting. System RAM and CPU power are the only limiting factors. In other words, it does not depend on your 3D video card capabilities.
  • Stacked Image Layers - just like your favorite 2D paint application! Create any number of layers, change the blending modes and strengths for ultimate texture compositions.
  • Chisel Deformers - sculpt your models on the fly using Blacksmith3D's powerful new chisel deformers. Just like paint brushes, you can apply swift strokes in the viewport to bulge, smooth, flatten, sharpen and contour details that you never thought were possible.
  • Real-time displacement/bump map painting and rendering. Paint directly on the displacement and/or bump maps and see the result in real time.
  • Auto-UV Mapping – use the Paint Setup Wizard to auto-UV just about any object file with a single click.
  • Presets - Store tools, viewports and brush tiling as presets for rapid reuse during projects.
  • Custom Hotkeys – simply right click on most interface elements to bind them to a hotkey on-the-fly.

Some video tutorials to get you started!
Please note that we have a limited and fixed amount of the keys for the offer!

System Requirements:

Windows XP/ Vista/ 7/ 8/ 10 (x32/x64); compatible with 3D Studio Max, Maya, Lightwave, Cinema 4D, Photoshop, Poser, Daz Studio or any applications that can import and export .obj files and use standard texture maps (jpg, png, etc.)

Great. Sells at Rendo for $129. re: #26 Chuck, I guess you call a 253 page manual no support, or maybe the 30 or so YouTube tutorial videos are no support. As an earlier comment stated, this is for 3D artists and if you aren't familiar don't download it just because its free.
For education and product support, video tutorials available at https://www.youtube.com/user/blacksmith3D and an official Blacksmith3D forum at http://www.renderosity.com/mod/forumpro/showforum.php?forum_id=12459.

The 32 bit exe file needed for 32 bit computers can be downloaded here, under the label "Get the last Blacksmith3D Version 6 Updates" :

https://www.blacksmith3d.com/blacksmith3d-support-cms-60

It works, and registers with the received key. Also, the unzipped folder is still registered after moving it to a different folder on the computer.

This is an extremely confusing giveaway. As others have stated it does not work in 32 bit Windows XP, will try it in Vista Business 32 bit. And may try in Win Vista Ultimate 64 bit later possibly. As I did run it in Windows 7 64 bit, and it supposedly is activated. However it is NOT an installed program on my C:\ drive, nor is it listed as an installed program. Is this a portable program?! I install these giveaway programs off my USB hardrive so they don't take up space locally. So I assume if I delete the giveaway folder the program won't work? More than confusing to say the least. Although it appears to be an awesome program, where are developers during this giveaway? No one has answered anyone's questions? I definitely wouldn't pay $129 for a companies software if they can't even answer a few questions while the giveaway is going on. But thank you anyway GAOTD. All these are worth a try. :-) And we aren't paying so I'm not complaining, just a large critique on this one. If it works in 32 bit Vista I will add to this comment, or if it won't install in Vista 64 bit as well. Have a great day!!

This software is portable so there’s no installer, simply Unzip the Compressed folder. Open the readme file and follow the instructions to receive your license key. If you’re a 32-bit user you’ll need to visit the support page in the provided link below.

https://www.blacksmith3d.com/blacksmith3d-support-cms-60

Read the second block on the left and download the 32-bit exe application file to put into your program folder. This is the file you’ll use to start the program.

I can’t verify it works on 32-bit, (64-bit here working as expected) but with the right application file it should work fine. Good Luck.

Tip: Remember you can locate this folder wherever you want because the program is portable

I would reiterate Original Samuel's points in the Facebook comments . I certainly appreciate the opportunity to get commercial software for free. However, in this case the software company's website (https://www.renderosity.com) appears to incorrectly state that this software will run under 32 bit XP. When I attempt to install it on 32 bit XP Home SP3 I get a message stating that "Blacksmith3D.exe is not a valid Win32 application", and therefore I cannot install it.

Was really interested in trying this, one of the few offers on GaotD that's grabbed my attention. The problem is, as others have also encountered, it's not 32bit compatible as the specifications state and won't install!

Can we please have this offer extended and a link to the requisite download provided? An awful lot of us are missing out, and it's probably mainly those of us with older machines who can't afford to upgrade to 64bit!!

Thanks

Blacksmith3D,

Thanks for the email containing the link, however there's a problem.

Your page says to install using the contents of the zip file, which doesn't work as it's giving the same error as the original download and needing 64bit. If I simply copy the 32bit file from your link and place it in the unzipped folder it starts, but is in demo mode with no save/export - because there's now no way to register! I've tried the link from the original giveaway folder and the page no longer exists!!

Disappointing but going to just have to give up on this one.

I have a question about this giveaway... this is the standard version and so can make no use of the Texture Transformer since that is a Pro only feature, yet you include 140 MB TextureTransformerData folder in the ZIP we download... that's most of what we had to download yet we cannot use it? Most of the other downloads you offer in your files folder do not include the pointless 140MByte file... I presume we can safely delete the V4_To_Dawn.TTPack zipped file?

Installed without issue. License sent instantly.

Of note...the program installs to whereever you unzip it...no offer to install to C directory or to have quick start on the Desktop. I assume I can move the unzipped location into my C Drive and copy a shortcut to my Desktop.

Not a biggy....just some extra steps that usually aren't there.

It will take days before I see if/how the program actually works. Hope there aren't extra steps there too?

bobbo, there's no such thing as in instant, intuitive 3d program - they just don't exist. If the idea of "days" to see if the program works for you is off putting, then maybe this isn't for you. I've been using Poser and Daz Studio for ten years and still feel like a newb, especially with Daz - they keep adding new features that I have to figure out :)

So after again closing program, re-open trying registration again, going to Blacksmith website, I now get 'License key provided is invalid'. Mind you, I have checked the spelling of my name when sent in for key, and have copy-paste key a couple of times.
This is not worth my time to try this software.
Good luck to others!

I am also very happy and pleased to have the chance, to get such a GREAT program as a freebie !! There is a learning curve, to be sure, but there are videos on YouTube to help, and also a downloadable manual. It won't happen today, and it will take time to become proficient, but this is a wonderful opportunity to do some fab graphics. Many thanks !!! No problems with installation or registration. Up and running well in Windows 10 laptop, 64 bit. Thumbs up from me.

Heh - I thought maybe go to their site and download the 32-bit Blacksmith3d Standard 6. See if I can make it work, so the people who are dependent on 32-bit could go that route. As it turns out, they don't actually offer that anymore - for sale or otherwise. The only option is the subscription-based version 7.

Warning: Personal opinion ahead! Subscription based software really bugs me. I know all the big names have gone that road now, and that definitely doesn't make it bug me any less. It's made me go completely freeware/ opensource as a result, and I've chosen to instead give my money to the developers who put so much work and effort into Blender, Gimp, LibreOffice, so on and so forth, making creative software available to everybody.

That this giveaway not only isn't actually a sold product any longer, but a version with less features than another product that is also no longer available, really turned me off of the software. And it looked so promising too. I'll stick with Blender.

Hello Original Samuel,

We can get you a 32-bit version. Please email info@blacksmith3d.com so we have your email to send that to you.

To register, extract all the files from the zip onto your hard-drive. Then, run the Blacksmith3D.exe file and the registration screen will show the first time you open it. Just register through the software and then restart it and you are ready to use.

bob bobson, I concour, the executable supplied in the giveaway bundle is a 64-bit only executable. Even though the system requirements here state x32/x64 compatability (which is not a valid term, it's x86 and 64bit) and even though it says "Windows XP (Yes, the software is Vista, Windows 7 and 8 compatible, 32 & 64 bit )" on their website the only downloadable files I can find are 64-bit executables even those listed in the folder https://blacksmith3d.com/files/

GAOTD please contact the vendor for the 32bit executables, I'd rather try this on my old 32bit vista laptop than risk putting it on my new 64bit windows 10 laptop which is stable in its current form.

https://blacksmith3d.com/files/Blacksmith3D-32bit.exe

it is version 6.2.0.12 not the final version 6.3.1.0

and registers ok... it requires first and last name and an email address to be entered on the registration form in addition to the license code we get from the ./get-key/ page.

Thank you Renderosity & GOTD! I have used layers and done some photoshop types of pictures but never nothing in 3d before. I was looking at the tutorials on you tube and was wondering if there is a specific basic tutorial on how to get started from scratch using a simple photo of a face or is there a demo project file for download somewhere to help learn the process?

I tried the quick start information from the manual, but I am still confused as to where to get or create the .cr2 files, I have read those are cannon raw files, but I'm not really sure how that works, or by that I mean : "Do you create them and if so how? Or do you convert a file to that format to use as a 3d model".

Either way, thank you for the giveaway promotion, it will be interesting to learn how to use, I'm just basically looking for more information.

From the product description: "System RAM and CPU power are the only limiting factors. In other words, it does not depend on your 3D video card capabilities."

That's a nice way of saying there's little in the way of using GPU hardware acceleration, though OpenGL 1.1 is used & required.

Info on version 7 here:
blacksmith3d[.]com/blacksmith3d-version-7-texture-transformer-version-2-released-cms-58

There's an update you *might* *try* here:
blacksmith3d[.]com/download-update-6-3-0-0-now-cms-51

The software is distributed without an installation program -- copy or move the "Blacksmith3D" folder where you'd like, then create shortcuts as you'd like to "Blacksmith3D.exe" or just double click it [or right click & Run as Admin., perhaps at least the 1st time]. The update mentioned above is a new set of files in the same folder arrangement. The download page says: "If you have a previously registered version 6 and have not removed any of the previous files, you should not have to register this update.", so hopefully it will work with the GOTD, but back up [copy] those original files first before replacing them.

The Readme.txt file that comes with the downloaded update says that the package is for the full suite [pro version] with file saving/exporting disabled. It then says that when you register the app it will convert to the product according to the key you used. Since the Texture Transformer is extra or included in the pro version, sounds like the "TextureTransformerData" folder, sadly the bulk of the GOTD download size, can be deleted, but copy it somewhere else, or rename it & try the app without it 1st.

I decided to download Blacksmith3D Standard 6 not because I'm interested in a program like this but just out of curiosity. In short, I had no problem installing and registering this portable. However I'm impressed for the program lack of intuitiveness and the the so cryptic tutorials. In short I'm can't expend my time trying to understand how this program works. Deleted.

I had this before and I'm not going to install this version. It is limited to very minimal rendition of 3D looks.
The black parts of the picture look like a plain black smudge, the people faces turn into porcelain like frozen look, if the background is busy (like trees or distance horizon) turns into a big blur, the hair looks not natural and is like painted on with a course brush and the final look is very disappointing.
Not to mention the time you will put in to build the object(s) around it (it took me 4 hours) to finish a simple project with one object and palm trees in the background and the size is tremendous when saved.

I agree with other comments regarding the program. I cannot install it on my Windows 8.1 Pro 32 bit system. Why wasn't the 32 bit version of the program offered? The 32 bit versions can be installed onto a 64 bit system, but not the other way round.

As a senior pensioner, I appreciate the items that are made available free for us, but can we please be offered programs that can and will work on all current Windows Operating Systems.

Thank you.

DougRT,

64 bit software handles memory differently, & can use more memory. 64 bit Windows includes a sub-system that allows running 32 bit software, which is a good thing because most Windows software is still 32 bit -- the exceptions are software that the developer(s) felt needed the extra capabilities that come with 64 bit code. Lots of graphics-related software, e.g. Photoshop CC [& today's GOTD], are only written for 64 bit, either because the developers couldn't realize their vision in 32 bit software, or felt that there wasn't enough of a market to create a 2nd, 32 bit version.

mike, I appreciate your reply and not disagreeing with you, but on the GOTD offer page it stated that it was suitable for x32 and x64, copied below, which was misleading to interested people.

System Requirements:
Windows XP/ Vista/ 7/ 8/ 10 (x32/x64); compatible with 3D Studio Max, Maya, Lightwave, Cinema 4D, Photoshop, Poser, Daz Studio or any applications that can import and export .obj files and use standard texture maps (jpg, png, etc.)

DougRT, see my reply to lui. 3d graphics is better with 64 bit systems for the reasons he gives and as I said, this software is aimed at 3d artists. Daz studio that I mentioned is a free 3d software program that will alow you to get a glimpse, however as stated it is memory intensive due to the rendering of the images it creates, giving a lifelike image that major film studios use for character generation. An example is the scenery in avatar created using a program called vue, or jar jar binks in star wars

This has a very odd installation process, you almost have to be an alchemist to figure it out. And then what does it do? The package should have a video guide to illustrate its various uses. The software is not intuitive. Step 1, 2 and 3? Even in my car I know where to put the key in, what is step 1 here.

Hello George James Ducas,

You download the zip file, open the zip, extract the files to your hard-drive and then open the executable. The first time you open it, it will show the registration page. There you enter the license key that GOTD gave you. Restart the program and its ready to use. We have videos on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/blacksmith3D/videos and our manual is on our support page https://www.blacksmith3d.com/blacksmith3d-support-cms-60

Hope that helps.

Appears to be pro version but once you go through the registration procedure and re start the prog you end up with standard version as expected,which is a
pretty good bit of kit.
64 bit win 7 and 10 working ok .

How do I know that the software has been registered? I have registered it and after restarting the program the option to register is still there.

Hello Johnny,

Please make sure that you fill out all of the fields in the registration and that you see the "Successfully registered" in the bottom left comment box before restarting. If it was successful, you will see the 'Welcome to Blacksmith3D Standard. Running' message in the bottom left comment box, so the registration window can be closed. The option always exists in the 'help' in case you need it in the future. If you are having problems, please email us at info@blacksmith3d.com with your details.

Please note that we have a limited and fixed amount of the keys for the offer!
The description also implies something that is not mentioned in the capabilities. Thanks GOTD. Be back again tomorrow.

The exe file won't even open. It says "This app can't run on your PC." I have Windows 8.1. Please provide a download for 32 bit users asap...

Reply   |   Comment by Ez  –  10 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+12)

Hello Ez,

That is a standard message when you are running the windows anti-virus/defender that wants to block executable files by default. When that window opens, click on the 'more info' link and you will get a button option to 'Run'. Please email info@blacksmith3d.com for additional assistance.

This product seems excellent, but I won't waste one of the limited number of keys on registering it for myself as I think other GOTD users would benefit more than me.
Good luck guys.

I finally got to the Get Key page after trying via three different browsers and got the key via email.
Ran Blacksmith3d.exe and completed the registration page - to get a message saying key was not valid.

Hello Derek,

Please make sure that you are copying and pasting the key into the field and do not have any spaces before or after the license key. If you continue to have an issue, please email us at info@blacksmith3d.com so that we can help you.

Looks interesting, but beside not being the most recent 7 version, this standard version is very limited compared to the pro one.
If you scroll down this page:
https://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/blacksmith3d-standard-version-6/106976
you will find where you can click to display a comparison chart between version 6 standard and pro.

You can subscribe to the full pro 7 version for a monthly fee of less than 9 dollars, and cancel at any time:
https://www.blacksmith3d.com/mod/bsmith3dreg/subscribe.php

They also explain on top of this GOTD page how you can upgrade from standard 6 to standard 7 with a 40% off coupon.

Downloaded, got serial, etc. But refuses to install. Says it is not compatible with "this version of Windows" (Win7/32).

Huh?

orig_rune, There is no installation, it's portable.

orig_rune, the website says it's compatible with 32 or 64 bits, but the download provided here appears to be a 64-bit program, so will not run on 32-bit systems.

ew, instructions say to install (!) before giveaway period is over. But if you can't believe the 32/64 bit stuff...? Mine won't install anyway (Win 10 64bit), and won't run as portable either. Great.

Blacksmith3D, Thanks but there's no need, I have a 64-bit system and it runs fine. I was just pointing out what the problem might be.

Blacksmith3D, not seeing your support page off Renderosity.. just the store. Could you please supply a link in this thread for those wanting the 32bit version? I've sent an email to you a bit ago, so far without response, so am posting this request in the thread.

Thank you!

Blacksmith3D, what is the URL for your support page I cannot find it using firefox compatible browser on your site, it seems a mixture of navigation styles and no explicitly named support link or button that I can see!

My apologies, I had tried to paste the support link earlier, but not sure it worked right. So, I will try it again here: Blacksmith3D support page.

I've tried typing the registration key and copying and pasting it and I get "The registration key entered is invalid for this product". Any ideas?

Reply   |   Comment by BobH  –  10 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

BobH, Same probleme . Key for version 6 standard. Installation for version6 pro
Is it possible to load version 6 standard instead of pro version ?

Reply   |   Comment by LABUS  –  10 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

LABUS, I don't get it. The version downloaded on my PC is definitely 6 standard.

ouialaraison, You are correct, They are giving us version 6 and you can then upgrade to 7, I assume for a fee.

Reply   |   Comment by Arnold Knack  –  10 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

BobH, ensure you do not have a "space" before or after copying the code.

Hello BobH,

It sounds like you got it registered after making sure there were no spaces before or after the license key.

Until the software is registered, the software is in DEMO/Free Trial mode, which is the pro edition. And it is the Standard version 6 that we are giving away. Sorry for any confusion.

Best Regards.

Blacksmith3D, I haven't been able to register my copy. I'm putting in the registration number properly, but I keep getting " "The registration key entered is invalid for this product".

Reply   |   Comment by BobH  –  9 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Blacksmith3D,

No. I clearly said that wasn't the problem. The problem was, it kept saying the key was invalid, and I couldn't spend my entire Saturday waiting for a response from you. After reading all the other comments I ended up uninstalling it anyway. It just isn't worth the aggravation. Thanks anyway.

Best Regards.
