The Philosophy behind the tool

Botcha is a 3D modelling software that is targeted at product designer. We like to think that you can created inside of botcha any product that fits in a 3 cubic meters volume. The objective that we set to ourselves when we started developing this software was to create a suite that was easy to use and quick to pickup for designers that have little to no experience within the 3D world but have an understanding of vector graphics toolkits (such as Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw).
