What is MakeHuman?
MakeHuman is a tool which creates 3D humanoid models. Normally, this would be a difficult task to accomplish with other utilities. But this particular utility makes it easy to mold human like visuals into 3D models.
The installation process lasts a rather long time due to all the plugins, textures, and other elements included with the program. Once the installation has finished and the program is opened, the interface will display on the screen.
MakeHuman includes a lot of textures and elements which you can use. This tool is used for making the details you want so the human you are designing looks the way you like. There are multiple things which you can do in this app such as adding your human’s age, gender or you can even look at the small details like the eye characteristics.
Since the first release, makehuman uses a unique mesh, that has evolved through successive releases, incorporating community feedback and the result of studies and experimentation.

You can customize the view too. Use the two quick buttons to zoom away to a world view or zoom in to a closer face view. You can export your model creations in formats like DAE, MHX, STL, and OBJ. These file formats can be opened in software programs like Blender or Collada.
Overall, this tool is a great solution for someone who is interested in creating their own 3D models.
