A lot of time has passed since DAZ 3D offered its main 3d human figures for free, for this reason I publish this new post in which I illustrate the free DAZ 3D software and the free DAZ 3D figures available now. In addition, for those who don’t mind spending a few dollars, you will find information on the Platinum Club +, a subscription that allows to get various benefits on the purchases made in the DAZ store.

Free DAZ 3D Software
DAZ 3D makes available to all users a free 3D suite, including DAZ Studio and Hexagon, which allows you to animate, model and render.
DAZ Studio is a powerful and free 3D creation software that is not only easy to use, but also full of features, and can be used to create rendered images and 3d animations.
You can find more information and the program requirements on this page.
On this page, instead, you will find video tutorials for the two programs above, which will help you start your adventure in the world of the 3d art.

Even though DAZ 3D no longer offers for free its main human figures, with the download of DAZ Studio you will find several bundles that include the basic figures Genesis, Genesis 2, Genesis 3 and Genesis 8, as well as many other free DAZ 3D content such as clothes, poses, hair and props.
