Caligari TrueSpace3D as an altenative to Blender

For those of you who find Blender too difficult to use, it may be an idea to download the Caligari TrueSpace 3D version 3.2 which is available in a free version at

The program can save scenes in WRML version 2.0 which the Stentec Object Editor can read and convert to Stentec 3D Model ( xxxxx.s3d )

(Forget all about this message if I'm the only one who find Blender difficult :-)

Hi Lars

Thanks for the information and link.
Always useful to have as many options as possible.
Will have a look at it myself. Don't know about restrictions though of using any 3D models made with it for routes on line, as have put the models I make into the routes and there are 12 or so available from Texino's site.

I have just put the tutorial back on my site for Blender.
Details on how to make a simple coaster.
Biggest problem though is getting boats to float with the Object Editor as impossible to get some of them to float such as the steamer I made and some of the narrowboats.
Blender can now save direct to vrml2 as before you had to use a script file.
Also click www link below for site.

I am still using Blender but have a new computer with ati radeon 9800 AIW card and find Blender is not running as well on it as on the older computer.
