Mudbox digital painting and sculpting software provides 3D artists with an intuitive and tactile toolset for creating and modifying 3D geometry and textures.


Create, texture and paint directly onto 3D models. Digital sculpting and painting toolsets in Mudbox® software help artists to:

  • Create more life-like 3D models with professional digital sculpting tools that have the ability to pinch, pull, grab, smooth, and scrape.
  • Create cleaner, production-quality meshes from scanned, imported, or sculpted data using automatic and manual curve-guided retopology tools.
  • Paint directly onto 3D models created in and imported from 3ds Max, Maya and Maya LT, in a high-resolution, 3D painting workflow.
  • Add detailed textures to assets and render them more efficiently with texture baking tools that use Map Extraction.
  • See your work come together in the viewport using an intuitive multi-touch interface that renders quality results as you sculpt and paint.
  • Iterate more quickly with advanced 3D layer capabilities that let you experiment with design concepts and make changes easily.
  • Move 3D models and textures to and from select Autodesk products, such as 3ds Max, Maya and Maya LT, and take advantage of enhanced compatibility with Adobe Photoshop.
