Ultimate Guide to 3D Freeware by emtilt Ultimate Guide to 3D Freeware by emtilt
NOTE: This is extremely out of date and likely useless. I no longer use deviantART, and I no longer maintain this list.

Here it is. The complete guide to 3D freeware and shareware. Each entry includes a description, a working link, the platforms supported, licensing, and known alternate download locations. It includes over 100 applications for nearly 10 operating systems. This should help all of you on a budget, and now price is no reason to avoid 3D graphics. There are 3 versions of this list, a doc file, an HTML file, or a txt file. The doc file is reccomended for easier usage.

This list was compiled through searching the internet. I have found these programs over the course of a year, trying to find a way to get into 3D cheaply.

Soon I will have similar lists for 2D graphics, video editors, sound editors, and HTML editors.

I am going to be continually updating this list. If you find any mistakes, or have any corrections, please note me. If you know of a program that should be on this list or any info to contribute, please note me.

If you have questions about any of this software, feel free to send me a note asking about it. I have used/tried out a large number of these programs and might be able to help, or at least point you to some info.
