    Wings3D is probably the easiest 3D modeller without being totally useless for real modelling. There are some obscure tricks you might not discover on your own, which watching the workflow of others and tutorials will help with, but everything is laid out for you in menus, and all commands are summarized at the bottom of the screen by default. If you’re in the process of using something like Move, this will be replaced by contextually appropriate information (like that holding shift/control/alt will constrain to units defined in the options). If you’re used to a different camera system, Wings offers presets that can make it more like your favorite 3D modeller. You can assign hotkeys to any command in any menu (insert), and delete them again at will (delete). The interface visuals can be extensively customized. It’s much more flexible than it may first appear, though that might be less obvious with non-standard window elements. Maisha /
