    I am a smart fellow with programming and mathematical training but not in 3d modeling. I plan on becoming quite proficient in it though and using it to create objects to be printed. Based on that can you recommend a single software package? I don't want options. I'd like you to tell me what to use. Thanks all!!

    Hi marcus. Seems like there are a number of bugs on OS X. The lighting is screwed up and certain commands do not render properly. Any alternative suggestions?

    Oh, you're on Mac...I'm just guessing now, but you might try POV-Ray.

    There's a list of supported apps here if that doesn't work for you.

    I would second Rhino as well. Especially because of their trial before you buy. I'm mostly a programmer but I've found their interface to really work for me.
