3D Content Database 2


  • Product Code: ps_ap231b
  • DAZ Original: NO
  • Created By: Imagination Illustrated (with scripts by OrcaSoul & Geoff)
  • Released: Feb 26, 2009



It is vital that you DO NOT open a database (BBD file) from a previous version.

Because of its new features and fields, Version 2 is NOT compatible with 3D Content Database Version 1, 1.1, or 1.2.

  • Install the 3D Content Database 2 by running the setup program but do not uninstall the old version. (The two programs will not overwrite each other.) Create a new database in version 2 and then press F1 to bring up the User's manual. It has complete instructions about how to safely update your data using Web Catalogs and scripts. It also has a step-by-step Quick Start section.


  • Install 3D Content Database 2 by running the setup program. The first time you open the program, you will need to create a database. Select “Create new database…” from the menu options. (If you don't know what to name the new file, try something like My3DContent, StarterDatabase, DAZStuff, or PoserInventory.)
  • When the starter database loads, check it out. Press F1 to bring up the User's manual. It has complete instructions about how to use your new program, including how to use OrcaSoul's DAZHistory script to import your entire DAZ purchase history, with an image for each product!


Artist's Note

Special thanks are extended to OrcaSoul and Geoff. Your scripts made 3DCDB2 much better than the first version.

Thank you to everyone whose patience, feedback, and encouragement helped bring this product to market. :)

I hope you enjoy the upgrade. A lot of work went into making it easy to use, efficient, and flexible enough to work for those with large and small 3D content collections.

SCRIPTS NOT WORKING PROPERLY? OrcaSoul has kept them up to date. Please get updates from his website (follow link below). He also has others to help speed data entry and keep your database current.
