lol... best fix for vista yet... :D
Since I use Sketchup on my Macbook Pro, I haven't noticed any "vista" bugs....
Blender? I am... unaware... off to Google!
Blender.org It's an open source 3D application. I've used 3D Studio Max before and took a shot with Blender, but work and family precluded me getting any real results. Here's hoping you like it, because I'd sure like to see the output.
If anyone uses Blender a lot I would be really interested in some instant tips on how to use it. I have dabbled in the past but found that there is a bit of a steep learning curve as I think a lot of stuff is done on hot keys. Its really about time I switched to it tho. I know that there are loads of tuts on the web but I would need just the odd question answering etc. Right now tho I have no spare time to play with it.
I've spent quite a bit of time on blender. Mapping has kind of take over from modelling in my life so I haven't really used it for about a year, but I do know a few things if you need some questions answered. Its up there, in my view, with Gimp and Inkscape in the top three free apps available on the web.
Will take you up on that offer but gimme a few weeks - I am overloaded right now. Blender is a great free app but didn't it start out as a commercial one and got bought out by FSF or am I thinking of another app. But yeah, demo images from it can be astonishing.
Don't forget Wings 3d - it's not as comprehensive as blender, but it's free and (imo) easier to use.
