Sculptris - 3D Modeling Software

I usually don't like to write posts about software that I haven't had hands-on experience with, but after reading about Sculptris on Download Squad I had to share it. Sculptris is free 3D modeling software for Windows (no Mac option, I have a Mac). Sculptris is designed for creating mock-ups of sculptures and 3D objects with an almost "hand-drawn" appearance. Sculptris doesn't appear to be intended for creating boxy architecture drawings. Learn more in the video below.

Applications for Education
Sculptris looks like it could be a neat program for art students to use in the creation of sculpture models. Students could design 3D images before moving on to the use of clay or other materials.
