3D models are computer files created by special programs designed to simulate the appearance of objects and environments in the physical world. Using calculations based on the interactions between light and physical materials, these programs can render images as photorealistic as the artist's abilities allow.

Popular 3D Modeling Programs

The models linked to through this page were created by fans of Battlestar Galactica, in their free time, using a host of popular 3D modeling programs. The following list of programs is for reference.

  • 3D Studio Max is probably the most commonly used package for games.
  • Blender is a free, open-source package rivaling the expensive modeling packages and offering some relatively exotic features like Game Blender.
