I suggest you start with Rhino. I use Rhino, ArtCam Jewelsmith and
Z-Brush in some instances. ArtCam is high dollar and I see a lot of
folks getting the same or better results with Rhino and a hand full
of plug-ins. None of it is hard… the thing that makes it "Look"
hard is that there are so many ways to do the same chore at hand. I
started 12 years ago or so and have seen it FINALLY evolve into a
very useful & creative tool. Jump in!
