form·Z is a general purpose 3D modeler, which combines surface and solids modeling, and includes drafting and rendering, all in a single integrated package. Its users come from all design fields, including illustrators, animators, movie makers, special effects designers, architects, urban designers, landscape architects, interior designers, product and industrial designers, engineers, and even attorneys and doctors. Through the form·Z Joint Study program, form·Z is also used at about two hundred Universities worldwide to educate novice design professionals.

form·Z offers an extensive set of 2D/3D form manipulating and sculpting tools that are accessed through a highly interactive interface. These tools make it possible to easily create any form, real or imagined.

With about thirty continuously updated import/export formats, form·Z has traditionally been recommended as the modeling complement to many rendering and animation programs on all platforms.
