Versions of gSculpt prior to v0.99.45.1-alpha have a bug that could result in parts of models getting 'poly-souped' when loaded into newwer versions of gSculpt. If this happens, use an older version of gSculpt to convert the project file to an OBJ file, and reimport into v0.99.45.1 or later. This problem probably only affects a small number of project files.

George Supreeth has created a website called Painless 3D. His site has some very well written tutorials to help you get started with 3D and gSculpt.

About gSculpt
What is gSculpt?

gSculpt is an open source, procedural subdivision modeller. It has a comprehensive set of polygon modelling tools, including most of those found in Wings 3D, and more.

Workflow and speed of use are important design goals in the development of gSculpt. Pre-selection highlighting throughout the program, and keyboard short cuts ensure that the workflow is fast and efficient, while providing access to a powerful procedural system which allows mistakes to be rectified easily.

Its procedural modelling system makes it an excellent choice for making modelling tutorials, as the steps required to build the model from the beginning are displayed to the user in a list. This list can be navigated easily, allowing a user to view the process one step at a time, at their own pace, while being able too look at the model from all angles as they go.

gSculpt can import and export Wavefront Object (.obj) model files.

Quickstart and Documentation


Please download the gSculpt installer and the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable (links to the left). Install both packages by running them. Two shortcuts to gSculpt will be created; one in the start menu, and the other on your desktop. Restart your computer. Use either of the aforementioned shortcuts to start gSculpt.

Windows Vista

In order for gSculpt to function correctly under Windows Vista, you will need to disable desktop compositing (gSculpt uses OpenGL, and Vista desktop compositing is not compatible with OpenGL). Modifying the shortcut so that gSculpt runs in Administrator mode may help too.

Linux / source

Ensure that all the required packages listed on the left are installed. Download the source tarball. Decompress it. It will create a directory called gSculpt-<version>. Go into this diectory, and type:
> scons
gSculpt will now compile. Once this is complete, run gSculpt by typing:
> ./gsculpt
Or alternatively:
> python
