SensAble ClayTools™
Sculptural Modelling for Digital Content Creation & Fine Arts

The ClayTools system delivers incredibly fast, unconstrained modeling and is ideal for sculptural modeling of complex, Organic shapes for digital content creation and fine arts such as sculpture and portions of jewelry design. With ClayTools software and the PHANTOM® Omni™ device, you model with virtual clay and then smudge, smooth, carve, and tug to add details, blends, and textures that are challenging to achieve with traditional modeling tools. This natural and direct way of working makes the ClayTools system easy to learn, and users typically become productive within a few days.

  • Model in a faster, unconstrained, and more flexible way
  • Produce highly detailed models for game characters, props, and scenery
  • Add Organic detailing and texturing to jewelry designs
  • Use with 3ds Max®, Maya®, Rhino™, and other design applications that support .stl and .obj I/O
  • Add sculptural details, handcrafted modifications, and embossed textures to existing models
  • Create texture maps from high-res, detailed models to apply to optimized poly models for games, videos, and films
  • Gain the benefits of digital modeling - create multiple versions, duplicate handcrafted modifications, and create and use a library of parts
  • Output for Rapid Prototyping or casting
  • Expand your existing design and modeling workflows

    For Digital Content Creation
    Create detailed, ClayTools texture maps that are ideal to apply to low poly models created in popular modeling and animation packages such as 3ds Max and Maya. ClayTools data can be imported into 3ds Max and Maya for animation purposes.


    Generate 2048 x 2048 resolution normal map from an 8.5 million triangle model in less than 1 minute.

    ClayTools TextureKiln™
    Texture baking at blazing fast speed:
  • Allows Texture baking at blazing fast speed
  • Provides stunning visual content for real-time rendering and fast, high-detail, off-line rendering
  • Supports multiple map types (normal, height, color, and occlusion) for next-generation games, film, and design production pipelines
  • Large models – supports pieces each with over 20 million triangles
  • Streamlined – no need to decimate or export dense models to 3ds Max, Maya, and other animation packages
  • Quick iterations – maximize creativity and refine the final textured model without preprocessing steps

    ClayTools System - System Requirements
    Last Updated - October 2011

    ClayTools Qualified Configurations
    SensAble has tested and qualified the following specific configurations. Choosing one of these configurations will ensure the best possible experience when running the ClayTools system.

    Important: Using the ClayTools system with one or more discrete components of a fully qualified configuration (graphics card, for example) as part of an a la carte configuration does not imply qualification of any kind, partial or otherwise.

    PHANTOM Device Driver version 4.2.131 is required for Windows 7.

    ClayTools v3 Qualified Configurations
    Desktop Workstations

    1. HP Z400, with single 6 core Intel XEON W3680 @3.33GHz
    • Qualified for Windows7 32bit and 64bit
    • 12.0GB RAM
    • A SensAble-approved graphics card
    • BIOS Version: 3.07 or newer
    • Firewire driver: LSI 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller, version 6.1.7600.16385
    • Haptic Device Connectivity
    PHANTOM Omni connected to onboard FireWire 1394A port

    Laptops
    SensAble has qualified only the following laptops for use with ClayTools. These laptops are suitable for demonstrations and working at home, for optimum performance we recommend using one of the qualified desktop workstations.

    1. HP 8740w Intel Core i7 Q820 @ 1.73GHz
    • Qualified for Windows7 32bit and 64bit

    • Firewire driver: RICOH 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller, version 6.1.7600.16440

    ClayTools v2 Qualified Configurations
    The qualified systems are robust high-performance workstations and can be downgraded for economic considerations by reducing the number of processors from two to one, reducing memory and selecting a mid-range graphics card from the SensAble-compatible graphics cards. Changing the processor or component types makes the system no longer qualified.

    Important Notes
    • SensAble has tested a variety of hardware platforms in combination with the graphics subsystems listed above. While we make every attempt to be as thorough as possible, hardware manufacturers change their products frequently and may be shipping newer products or have discontinued active support for others.
    • If you run ClayTools on a non-qualified system that meets the system requirements described above and experience problems, SensAble support will make every effort to help solve the problems but cannot guarantee resolution.
    • Some SensAble users have had success running system configurations that deviate from the above. In such cases, these configurations are not officially supported by SensAble Technologies, Inc.
    • The PHANTOM Omni device is IEEE 1394a compliant. However, Sensable is aware of customers that have experienced performance difficulties with their PHANTOM devices when using controller cards with certain IEEE 1394a chipset, such as NEC, or driver combinations. In these cases, it may be necessary to update or change the 1394 controller card driver or to try a separate add-on 1394 controller card.
    • Note: SensAble doesn't officially support Mac machines; however, some SensAble customers have had success in running ClayTools with Windows on Mac using Boot Camp.
