Rhino (full name: Rhinoceros, AKA: Rhino3D) is a lightweight but extremely powerful advanced 3D modeling tool with a lot less hardware configuration requirements. Don’t dismiss it, because it contains all the NURBS (Non-Uniform Rational B-Spline) modeling functions. As a matter of fact, many users often use it to perform modeling, and then export high-precision models for other 3D software to use.

Wings 3D – Powerful yet easy-to-use advanced subdivision modeler

To learn 3D modeling, most people will recommend 3ds Max and Maya these trump-level of 3D computer graphics software to you. But what I want to emphasize again here is – the best may not be the most suitable for you or the one that best meets your needs. For those who are interested in modeling but don’t have much time to learn modeling techniques systematically, it is unwise to choose them. This case, we need a simpler and more user-friendly modeling tool such like Wings 3D.
