Iv been watching a few tutorial videos by tornado-twin which have been very helpful so far. But he mentions that its better to use different 3d modeling programs instead of just unity when creating 3d objects in a game.
I just wondered which is the best choice (that is free to download) of 3d modeling software to use and learn on?
Anyone one anything other than Blender, google sketch up or maya? I would be interested to know what you all use thanks! =)
i know this is old but sooo many people miss this.
maya is in fact free if you are a student. just go to the alias site and navigate to the student page. actually don't bother cos it's here, look, just below :)

I'm using sculptris and have found it really quick to learn and easy to use: http://www.sculptris.com/download.html
Heres a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DNRg6pdNeE
It's a sculpting tool so it best suited to organic things like characters and trees, less suited to making buildings.

I suggest that you either use Blender 3d or Cheetah3d. Do NOT use google sketchup,as models created in it are hard to make well and are very simple. I know you asked for free modeling programs,but you can get very good ones for about $20.
