Google Sketchup is powerful and free. It can be downloaded from the Google web site.

Im pretty proficient with sketch up but it just doesn't do organic type models very well at all! Stove designs and tents or building sure! but when your trying to model a waste belt for example good luck!:) Do you guys have maybe a plugin to work around its limitations? Thanks again guys!
