This is where the 3D Builder doesn’t impress, and it’s a bit ironic considering the name of the program. Comparing it to Sketchup and Blender, it’s definitely lacking in features that will make it a better 3D building software. You can’t select individual parts of an object and that means the shapes that you can create with the software are a bit limited. There are also no powerful viewing features that will allow users to view their 3D models in different ways. That said, this software does seem aware that it’s not really meant for that kind of heavy model-making, so it’s hard to fault it for that. In addition, it does have a lot of great things to offer. While the 3D Builder’s 3D modeling features aren’t entirely stellar, it does still have a lot of great things to offer. For example, this program is one of the best programs to view 3D models and print 3D images from. You can also turn 2D images into 3D files. The conversion isn’t perfect, but that it does work. You might need a better image in order to create perfect 3D files. 3D modeling isn’t this program’s strong suit. It doesn’t have a lot of modeling features that the most popular modeling software like Sketchup or Blender has. However, it doesn’t seem to have been designed for heavy-duty 3D modeling.
Instead, it’s all about viewing 3D files and printing them.

It won’t compare to the juggernauts in that respect, but if you just need a 3D file viewer then the 3D Builder is a pretty good program.
3D printing has opened up object design and manufacturing possibilities that not so long ago were almost unbelievable for computer users.
