Top 8 AI-Powered 3D Model Generators

The world of 3D printing is constantly evolving, and the development of artificial intelligence (AI) is playing an increasingly important role. In particular, the generation of 3D models by AI opens up new possibilities and potentials. In this article, we present five innovative services that are pioneering in this field.

We have compiled an overview of the current services, services, and concepts that offer or are currently developing Text-to-3D AI models.

OpenAI Shap-E

OpenAI, known for the AI tool ChatGPT, has introduced Shap-E, a tool for text-based creation of 3D models. Shap-E is faster and delivers better results than the previous model Point-E. This AI tool could simplify and accelerate the 3D modeling process, leading to faster prototypes and more efficient production.

Luma AI Imagine 3D

Luma AI has introduced a test version of an AI generator for 3D models called “Imagine 3D”. With this tool, users can request automatic creation of a 3D model by entering text. Although the tool is still in an experimental stage and only accessible by invitation, it shows the potential of AI in 3D modeling. The generated 3D models can be downloaded in the formats obj and gltf.

3DFY Prompt

3DFY.ai has introduced a service called 3DFY Prompt that allows users to make text inputs and receive realistic, high-quality 3D models in response. The generated models are divided into semantically meaningful parts and have excellent mesh topology, high-quality UV coordinates, and PBR textures. The service is category-based and generates 3D models according to real manifestations of the selected category. Prices from 3DFY.ai start at $5 per month.

Spline AI

With Spline AI, users can effortlessly create 3D objects, animations, and textures by providing AI prompts that describe their desired designs. Currently, use is only possible via invitation. Users can register on a waiting list. The basic package is free. Further functions such as team collaboration are subject to a charge.

Kaedim 3D

Kaedim can make a 3D model based on 2D images, which can be downloaded in the formats glb, gitf, obj, fbx, and others. However, the option is also offered to create 2D images via text. There is a trial version and the price otherwise starts at 150 US dollars per month.

CSM (Common Sense Machines)

CSM is similar to Kaedim 3D. Based on 2D images, 3D models are generated. With MidJourney, 2D images can also be generated via text input, which can then be converted into 3D models with CSM. In the future, it will also be possible to use videos as input.
