For the low price it does the job required by amateurs just wanting to have a bit of fun (such as myself), but it would benefit significantly from a broader range of import and export file formats and some simple options to create animation files (avi etc) and possibly include sound (not just sequences).
I couldn't help but compare this to Bryce3D which is probably over 15 years old now but seemed to have a lot more features as well object and material libraries (it needs at least one tree, car and human object option to complete its existing object library).
If the creators include enough features I think it would significantly improve its appeal and I would pay up to $150, as this would still likely be cheaper than its competitors.
First off I would like to say that I have used a selection of 3d software before, I use them for my work and as a hobby...
This is a very nice application, I truly believe that it has some great potential to become even better, its not the 'best' I don't believe in best, but this is a very nice and reasonable price and it's not just another 3d modelling application, the developer(s) have gone ahead and designed a really nice set of new features using inovative technology which is specific to this software. If you'd like to learn more look up the Text-To-3D mentioned a lot on the main website and page here.
Aside from that set of Text-To-3D it has a nice selection of simple tools that will allow you to make some really nice models, whether you want to just get into making models as a hobby or if you're looking to mod a game, add items to steam workshops or use it with Unity, you can do all of that, and more...
I think that I like how simple this application is to use, its straighforward, has everything there for you in clear sight. If you're worried about paying for this when you see people saying "just use Blender, its free" give it a shot and if you're having troubel you won't regret snagging this application, its a lot easier to use, it's not the same in many ways and has unique features and Bledner does a couple of things that this doesn't however... You're capable of doing anything that you would need in regards to modelling for any game you would like to create and or any mod content you desire to make and upload to the workshops here on steam. I mention Blender as I know it will come up if you're looking into a 3d software, they both have their pros and cons but if you're looking for something simple, straight forward and easy to learn, this will be the one to pick, blender is nice, but had a steaper learning curve for sure!
Read over the features, check the site out and if you're interested, feel free to add me and ask any questions. I am a fan of this software and I will be using it to teach a couple of my close friends how to make 3d models with it because they were unable to learn Blender and the way that it worked. I personally take a lot longer to do things in Blender than in this too, and Iuse Maya professionally for work. I would happily and may very well incorporate RaySupreme 3D into my workflow for low to medium poly game assets. I very much look forward to seeing where this software goes, I would definitely say that this software is worth a serious look for any amateur or newcomer to the 3d world and even people a little more versed with 3d, it's fund to use.
I apologise to the devs for mentioning Blender in this review...
Kind Regards, Patrick Griffiths
.::Edit::. I am currently recording a set of video tutorials on using this software for making game assets and will work on making a bonus video on importing them to certain games workshops here on steam.
This thing crashes all the time maing it unusable. Should be called CrashSupreme 3D. This was a huge waste of money even though I got it on sale. The fact that it keeps crashing means that none of their supposedly cool features matter. Just get Blender; it's free, does a lot more, and isn't hard to use. Blender also supports CUDA-based GPU rendering.

dont buy the steam version if you are linux user,directly doesnt work.
Avoid the point i cant run the aplication in linux,only i have try few minutes in Windows 7 version,i cant make a "objetive" opinion about the program.This program have a good look but the only true is this have many bugs ,so wait you purchase unless all bugs are fixed.Sadly,at the moment,i dont recommended this software.
No recomiendo su compra si eres usuario de linux,directamente no funciona.
Sin tener en cuenta el hecho de que no funciona en linux, solo he probado unos escasos minutos la version de windows.No puedo hacer una opinion "objetiva" del programa.El programa en si tiene buena pinta pero lo unico cierto es que tiene muchos fallos.Asi que retrasa su compra hasta que todos los fallos sean corregidos.Desgraciadamente,por el momento,no recomiendo este software.
Wasted $40. This may look like its a good program but its not. I cant even use it for 10 minutes then it crashes. It crashes using some tools too. Your better off downloading Blender 7.1 at least with blender it only crashes a couple times a week or so (Maybe 1 to 3) thats using it for hours on end every day. I havent experienced any crashes recently with blender. Blender is much more stable than this program and the best part is Blender is free.
I am not using Ray supreme until they update and fix all the glitches and bugs. DO NOT BUY THIS BUGGY PROGRAM! GET BLENDER.
Im not one to really bash a program but this one is another story. Litteraly no joke It crashes almost every 5-10 min.
If you want to have a good program for 3D download Blender in cunjunction with 3D Coat you will have plenty of tools with those two programs together for any modeling needs. (You have to buy 3D Coat by the way)
If you want a good editor of 3D models, RaySupreme is a good option, got a nice price, good tools, an optimal appearance.
Now with the update, bugs and crashs evaporated, has a cool UV painter with many brushs, unfortunately it does not paint directly on the 3D model, but anyway can be very useful for many people. It has a very powerful renderer, very unusual among from same price software, even more expensive.
+ Array modeling is RaySupreme's strong point as long as a minimum of 4 instances occur. The array tool in RaySupreme is better than many other low cost and free options. + UV options are more extensive than I expected + The nodal options and text options can increase speed if utilized + The included downloadable materials are appreciated and helpful + a variety of stone materials are available after download + path animation is present for objects
- Modeling a single object is not RaySupreme's strong point as doing so is slower than other options available - many metals like bronze and silver are not present - path animation does not work for cameras(At least I haven't figured out how yet.) - no updates to the program itself, as it is being rewritten as an html 5 app - camera options are severely limited... I can't find a way to create a 2nd or 3rd camera... it has free and fixed.. but rendering these frames through this camera, and these frames through another camera... not going to happen unless an update changes things
Still to test
~ Material grouping for Substance Designer... if RaySupreme can do this, then I could go directly from RaySupreme to Substance Designer as I can with Wings3D
So, previous version was a little rocky in terms of stability on Linux. It's been ok, but has crashed and not quite worked for me and maybe others?
So 1.6 came along and you can tell the developers have been working hard. They've clearly listened to users, even us Linux users. The UI looks much better and the application feels more stable.
So for a reasonable priced 3D application, it's good. There are some improvements to be added, but they are catching up on decades of mature 3D applications.
If you are a 3D expert, not sure what this will give you over what you have already. Maybe download a demo and find out, it could surpise you. If you want to get into 3D, this isn't a bad choice and you don't have the steep learning curve of say Blender.
