I currently use AutoCAD 2008 for both 2D and 3D, but have found that the 3D part is sometimes difficult to use. I am looking to "upgrade" to a "true" 3D application. I have looked at 3d studio Max and Blender. Which would be the better route to go? Cost is not the main issue here. I just need some input from you guys who use these as to which would be easier to learn and/or use. Also if there is another app you recommend just let me know. Thanks for the input.
