Which 3d modeling and engineering program
I am new to 3d modeling and printing. Before I go and buy or build a 3d printer I would like to start 3d modeling.
Out there is chaos. I mean there are over 15 programs that do 3d modeling. Each friend I ask he uses a different one.
So I need some help. Here are the requirements:
1)Software must be good for 3d printing
2)I don't care if it is hard to learn (if the results are good and the possibilities are endless)
3)Must be also engineering compatible (e.g I would like to build a suspension, or apply heat to a model and see what happens, or apply pressure at a specific point and see what happens)
4)Cost is not a problem,because my boss is paying
5)I have windows 7 64bit 4GB ram
Thank you all
