Description: Kanova is a simple, easy to use, VR enabled, 3D sculpting application. It uses the patented 3D Adaptive Distance Field (ADF) technology developed by Foundry. Unlike other tools on the market, Kanova can be used in pure VR form, for creative exploration, or as a hybrid/VR desktop application. Artists can further refine and develop creations by exporting to Foundry’s 3D content creation platform, Modo and Modo indie.

Sculpting in VR completely changes artists typically approach creating 3D objects. Freeing them from learning technical tools and terminology and allowing them to intuitively sculpt 3D objects in a natural fashion. The simplified nature of Kanova’s interaction means that it appeals to first time users to 3D as well as seasoned artists and industry professionals, giving each a unique tool from which to create 3D artwork.

Review: As with all of these 3D VR creation tools I am probably not the best person to review them mostly down to the lack of any creative talent in my body. But all I can tell you is how easy it seems to be and how many tools you seem to have access to at a beginners level. Sadly for Kanova it was way too complicated for its own good and while I did manage to mess about with the tools, in the end, it took me far too long to learn what everything does and from the start, you are kind of on your own. At least it is free I suppose so you can give it a good go yourself, but it was way too complex for me personally.
