Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Breaking loose from the confines of the Labyrinth, the Minotaur has forced his way into DAZ. This mighty mythos dominates any who oppose him with powerful Full-Body and Full-Head shapes that were meticulously sculpted to bring out the finest details in High-Definition.

No detail has been overlooked in this addition to the Genesis 2 Male collection. With bovine leg options, horns and a tail, the Minotaur can crush, impale and maim his enemies in a variety of ways.

Minotaur 6 is built on DAZ's revolutionary Genesis 2 Base Male so you can mix and match him with any other Genesis 2 Base Male morph or character.

Some key advancements with Genesis 2 include:

  • Morphing:
    • The concept of morphing has been advanced further in the Genesis 2 product line. Genesis enabled a figure to be morphed little by little toward a child, a monster, a supermodel, a muscle-bound warrior or even an alien. Now with Genesis 2 more points of articulation, more polygons in the figures and a male and female specific base allows you to easily sculpt Minotaur 6, and any Genesis 2 figure, into more detailed, more articulate and more gender specific forms.
  • Increased details:
    • With over 2,000 more polygons than even the Genesis base had, the detail levels on some of the most critical body parts, like faces, feet, hands, as well as knee and elbow joints, produce a much more realistic end product.
  • Articulation:
    • No matter how good a figure looks, it has to move right. It has to react well with its environment in a realistic way. With Genesis 2, changes in level of articulation are one of the most significant updates to the base. Specifically, this includes increases in the individual movement of ears, toes, breasts, body joints and torso, as well as reworked weight mapping to show the effects of theses movements and the gravity they happen in.
  • Facial expressions (Read More)
    • In order to produce more realistic facial movements and expressions, Genesis 2 includes a dynamic and movable jaw, as well as significantly increased facial polygons and a new eye reflection mesh.
  • Compatibility:
    • Due to consistency of key body parts and shapes, such as feet, users are able to utilize content and accessories intended not only for Genesis 2 Males, but to also leverage their Genesis content through the DAZ Studio “auto fit” process. Additionally, due to the ability to go directly from a Male base to another Male base, the auto fit process for Michael 4 content has also been improved (this processes requires the use of the Michael 4 for Genesis 2 Male product).
  • Software support:
    • The two industry leading software products for leveraging the DAZ 3D models are DAZ Studio (which can be downloaded for free at and POSER. Whichever of these you prefer, Genesis 2 will work just fine. Minotaur 6, and any Genesis or Genesis 2 figure, will simply drop right into DAZ Studio seamlessly, or can be easily imported into POSER using the DAZ DSON import utility available at
