    Hi all!
    I´ve been looking around and tested a few softwares to make a creation
    so, if someone could make a sticky with softwarelinks and some info sticked to it
    I prefere freeware so please add if it´s free or trial or whatever too

    I found some awsome models in sketchup and it sems fairly easy to use and here i found a plugin to, haven´t tested it yet though

    that´s why I asked for a sticky so it will be easier to next searcher to find

    just for info, I´m picky with details and quality on my creations so that´s why I still search for the best FREE software

    (yes, some models is usable if the possibility to shange texture is avalable :twisted: )

    Sketchup is a great tool if you take the time to learn it. Also, for editing 2d drawings, try out

    Someone posted a thread for a plugin that can allow you to flatten a model so as to export it for print.

    what I´m looking for is one program similar to sketshup but fith better folduptool than the plugin.
    a program that can handle a bit bigger files, any 3D file (or most of them)
    I´ll try blender again later when I fix my main computer, it doesn´t work well on this one i´ve missed, i´ll check it out...

    No ... not really. =P

    I 'tried' to use Blender but had a problem trying to understand the interface as there seems to be some kind of emphasis on the placement of one hand constantly on the keyboard and one hand constantly on the mouse. All for convenience and efficiency.

    Not to say that Blender may not have what you are looking for.

    Pepakura is a great program if your going to get into designing. I'm kind of puzzled as to where they are getting their on site exchange rate because $38USD does not equal $51Cdn.
