Free easy to use 3D graphic program?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I need something that is simple for designing a computer case. Easy as "I need a few 1x1x24" rod" gets me a few, and a "1x1x6" rod with 11 degree angle at both ends" gets me a few.

Blender is about all you can really do that is in the free market. There was another free one similar to zbrush, but I can't remember the name off hand.

Google Sketchup works very well for rectilinear forms. It does curves alright, but it can't do true curves so any sort of rendering will suffer from the facets. Blender is nice for anything more curvy and free form though it has a steep learning curve and it doesn't translate well to other 3D programs.

I have not overly used sketchup that much, only for exporting engineering models; can't you soften the normals on the model to reduce the hardness of the edges?

Sketch up is more architecture, Blender would be better. If u could get a copy of 3D Max all the better

Actually, come to think of it, you can get Maya Complete for free as a student on their website. Maya is also a good choice and my primary modeling package.
