Open source tool for making 3D characters
MakeHuman is a free, open source software which allows the creation of
realistic 3D human characters fast and in a simplified manner, through the
manipulation of controls for different human attributes.
Users are able to model human characters by manipulating the controls to modify
various human characteristics such as gender, age, height, weight and ethnicity
as well as low level details of things such as the eye's shape, mouth's shape
or finger's length. Via a 'point and click' approach, users can preview and
load poses, animation cycles, facial expressions, hair, shoes and clothes onto
characters from the MakeHuman™ Library. The human characters created can be
saved in the custom MakeHuman format (.mhm), rendered and exported in various
formats such as Collada (.dae), Filbox (.fbx), MD5, Blender exchange (.mhx),
Wavefront .obj, Stereolithography (.stl).
The output characters are licensed under the CC0 license, one of the most
liberal license for output content. This means that artists are given the
freedom to use their creations for both commercial and non-commercial
purposes. The copyright © 2001-2014 is retained by the MakeHuman™ Team
