3D modeling for everybody
DeleD is a 3D modeler and level-editor combined into one. It focuses at game development and is specifically designed to create static scenes. NOTE: a new webbased version called DeleD Designer is available at https://www.deled.io ! It has similar capabilities but is generally easier to use. Related project at https://sourceforge.net/projects/deled-plugins/, featuring DeleD plugins. A Lazarus port is available in the repository as well. Check out the official DeleD website at http://www.delgine.com for more info, updates and more.
