Modelling software for people on a budget

Postby keith1961 » Fri Feb 17, 2017 1:11 pm

I’m an amateur modeller so I can’t afford, and don’t have time to learn to use, the expensive professional modelling apps. So for a long time I thought I would be stuck with the choice of Hexagon or Blender but there seem to be quite a lot of new free 3d apps around at the moment and I have been testing some of them out. One of the easiest to use is Rocket 3F It is quick to learn and works well with Moi3d and 3D Coat, which are my other two favourites at the moment. Where rocket also scores highly in my book is its low cost to power ratio. If you are happy to renew your license each month (a few mouse clicks) its free to use with no restrictions. It’s much easier to learn than Wings or Blender so a good for beginners as well as experienced modelers who want quick results. Vectory might also be worth a look but it’s not quite so easy to pick up and runs in a browser. Because of the flexibility of Simlab I have managed to import models from all of the above apps into Simlab for rendering.

3D software is very difficult to learn. Therefore, I see no reason to study the little-known and not common software.

Small budget?
Blender is a very powerful free package. A lot of tutorials, plug-ins etc...
I very rarely use the subdivision modelling and I chose Silo 3D. Silo is very similar to Maya, easy to learn and coast about 100$. It depends on what are you going to do.

How long have these two guys the patience to develop this Rocket? Where is the guarantee that Vectary will be developed further?
