    3D Modelling software


    I'm traying to find a software for 3d modeling. I've been trying to use Blender, but I would prefere to find something more on the line lik Rhino3D on win. Becouse I can draw every line exactly like a CAD software, but then put everything into 3D.
    Anyone know of something like that?

    I found Wind3D, but I still can't model in the lines like I mentioned above(not precise enough).
    I'm using Ubuntu.

    I know I'm being a pain in the... but I've tried modeling with prgrams like Blender, but I just prefere the CAD style. Unfortunetly CAD software doesn't usualy let me do 3D work.
    Thanks for the help.

    Wings3D is an alternative to Blender, but I'm not sure what the interface is like.

    Some free CAD apps with 3D capability are: VARKON, Synergy, ARCAD, and Cycas. VARKON is in the Ubuntu repositories so it's probably a good one to start with.

    I would say the easiest way is to search in synaptic package manager for 3d modeling, it will give you several 3d programs.

    BRL-CAD would be a good choice for axiological reasons.

    It's a released, free U.S. Military program for 3D development.

    For basic users, it's not that much of a big deal.
    For advanced users, it requires programming in C.

    However, it uses a command-line interface with a GUI output.
    It also has a bit of a GUI input, but it is limited.

    By the way, I tried installing BRL-CAD on Kubuntu a while back. It wasn't too successful.
    If you can get it working on a Linux OS, could you come back and say how you did it?

    ...this thread is old...

    Thanks for the info.
