Human body is made up of flexible and robust bone structure known to us as skeletal system. Adult skeleton is made up of 206 bones whereas an infant skeletal system is made up of 350 bones. In an adult skeleton, 650 different muscles of different shapes and size are functioning enabling us to move and work properly. To study and understand the whole complex bone structure of human body is never easy. For the purpose of facilitating people in studying human body, 3D skeleton software can be highly beneficial. The animated skeleton and high definition 3D images of human body could be of great help in visualizing the whole structure.

These 3D skeleton models are composed of high graphics and images that enable us to have a clear view of all the body parts and understanding it's functioning. As we all know that body structure of male, female and infant vary greatly from each other, thus, you would also get different models for all of them. 3D skeleton software provides every possible detail regarding their bone structure to the person with properly labeled images of all the muscles. By going through all the images and videos, you would be able to understand the functioning and the means of communication of the whole human body in a clear way.

There are various methods and techniques used to build 3D skeleton software with the help of different and advanced computer programs such as Maya, 3D studio max, Cinema 4D and BodyPaint 3D. Software companies use CAT scan and MRI data to build these models as they want each muscle and bone properly placed and labeled in their software in order to avoid any mistake anatomically. By using these techniques, they demonstrate the correct number of bones, sizes, shapes and location in an accurate way.

How to build 3D skeleton models:
The details about all the softwares that are mainly used to build3D skeleton system to give a clear understanding of human body is given below:

3D Studio Max:
It is one of the most common software used by various people and considered to be the most powerful 3D modeling, rendering, and animating software. It is highly beneficial for the creation of all the parts of human body.

Cinema 4D:
It is also widely used for the 3D animation purpose. Students mainly prefer this software as its price is quite reasonable but its functions are limited if compared with 3D studio max.

It is also widely used for the purpose of giving unique visual effects and animations. It is widely used for the 3d meshes human heart, 3d human models and many other graphic designs.

Body Paint 3D:
This software is mainly used to give a detail view of the texture with complete layers and tablet support. It is highly beneficial for the building of human 3D models where a simple texture won't do any good.
