    I usually model in Rhino, which is a great program for modelling machinery, vehicles, etc., but not really suitable for organic modelling (animals, people, etc.).

    Now I would like to experiment with organic modelling, with a view to printing the models at Shapeways.

    What software would forum members recommend?

    Many thanks in advance

    Thanks ao2design. It sounds good, but it seems to require Zbrush?

    Sculptris is stand-alone and free software... it works well, but has a few quirks, be sure to save often.

    I made this squid using a base .obj model imported into Sculptris for organic 'adjustment'.

    Sculptris is a standalone application [mac or pc]. Zbrush is not required to run it.

    This video is a good place to begin your 3d sculpting journey:

    Thanks a lot guys.

    Sculptris sounds like the one to start with, then!

    Trying it out now, and it is indeed a great little program - just what I needed. And free, too. Amazing.

    Many thanks again guys.
