"Powerful 3D tools in an approachable interface"

Macworld UK Gives Strata Design 3D CX 4 Stars

From across the pond, Strata gets another stellar review:

"Strata Design 3D CX is a 3D modeling tool aimed squarely at digital artists and illustrators. Everything seems designed to be approachable for Photoshop users - from interface similarities to use of the same vocabulary. It even ships with six Photoshop plug-ins to make using Design 3D CX almost like running a large filter set. Photoshop CS4 boasts some 3D tools but Design 3D CX has much more powerful 3D tools."
