In this article from Utah Business, Daz 3D is featured as a major technology used in creating digital identities with utility beyond a simple profile picture. While many PFPs are 2D art, Daz 3D brings full 3D avatars to the space and provides fully-rigged models to be used in Daz Studio.

This is where Daz 3D comes in. If you own an CloneX (RTFKT), you can use it to create content in Daz Studio, which has software tools with extra assets. Daz’s free software tools allow users to adjust the avatar’s body size and shape, pose it, customize skin tone, background, hair, and other features, and then apply digital clothes that automatically adjust to the size and shape of the avatar’s body.

“Daz makes it easy for anyone new to 3D to come in and start making free content,” Le says. “And supporting the creator economy is in both of our companies’ DNA.”
