Argon 11Research, Charitable & Retired Edition 3D modeling offers precision 3D modeling without the parametric history or associativity that can be cumbersome to those just beginning their journey in 3D. Argon 11uses the same intuitive user interface found in Cobalt and Xenon to provide wire-frame, solid and surface modeling, full rendering and camera animation, but at a lower price point. Available on both Mac and Windows, Argon is an excellent way to step into the world of 3D modeling using our unique Organic Workflow non-linear design process.
