Welcome to the website of Pointshop3D

Pointshop3D is a software system for interactive editing of point-based surfaces, developed at the Computer Graphics Lab at ETH Zurich (Switzerland).


Pointshop3D was presented at SIGGRAPH 2002 in San Antonio. The Boolean operation and free form deformation tools of Pointshop3D 2.0 were presented at SIGGRAPH 2003 in San Diego.


Please note that we will give support for Pointshop3D only until December 2006. However, we will not remove Pointshop3D from the web, so it will still be available for download.
