3D modeller for Windows 10
« on: August 07, 2021, 02:08:11 »
On Mac I use the excellent Cheetah3D and currently looking for something similar for Windows 10. I don't mind free or paid for options. Of course I also don't want to pay silly money as I don't ever plan ( or can ) on generating super AAA stuff.

Derron, yes I know about Blender and will give that a try :))

If you are unfamiliar with Cheetah3D then take a quick look on YouTube so you can see the kind of style and simplicity my little brain needs ;D

Suggestions? :)

Mac mini (2020 ), M1 SoC, 8 GB LPDDR4, 512GB NVMe 
Commodore VIC-20, 1.1Mhz MOS 6502 CPU, 5KB RAM, VIC ( 6560 ) GPU

Until the next time.

I would suggest Blender also as it really is very good once you know how to get it to do the things you want . I can build a model , export a uv map and animate my creations . That's all I really need to know but it does more I'm sure of that . First class bit of kit . I used to use wings3D but It could not do animation so outgrew it .

Well, yes besides Blender... maybe Hexagon might be up your alley.

That was the first modelling app that I was comfortable with. Not sure if it is developed anymore, but it is available.
Ahh thanks, forgot all about Hexagon. I remember that from years ago but it was something I never used. I agree that it doesn't look like it's still in active development but that doesn't mean it just stops working ;D

I'll give it a whirl along with Blender to see which suits the best, thanks.

I was interested in Modo but once I saw the £1500 price tag I've never closed down a browser tab so fast in my life :P

Oo, that looks very interesting and no silly price tag either. Cool, thanks, will have a nosey into this.

Is Silo in active development again? I remember that they had stopped for a long time working on it.

There's also nVill by DigitalFossil. It's pretty cool.

Is TrueSpace or its sibling GameSpace still around?
Prepare to be assimilated !  Resistance is futile!

That looks pretty intuitive, thanks. Will have a nosey at some ooTube videos.

Yeah there is still a community hacking around with Caligari TrueSpace. For me though it died the day Microsoft bought it and sub sequentially dumped it for free with no further updates. Don't know if they were just after some tech or patents, who knows. These days though TrueSpace is really showing it's age with the modeller.
