Can anyone recommend a good 3D vector graphics / CAD programme for Linux? Ease of use wins out over complicated features here…

I have heard good reports of Blender, although I haven't actually tried it myself. I think Ease of Use and 3D Vector Graphics don't really fit in the same sentence, alas.

Disagree. My dad had (has?) a very nice CAD (as opposed to 3d graphics) package which I picked up very quickly.

It wasn't a cheap one, let's leave it at that.

Blender is very handy for 3D-art type stuff (I learned to use it to create 3D head models while working at BT over a summer), but isn't really very useful as a CAD package - unless it's been improved it used to be that you couldn't even directly input exact values for line lengths, rotations and so on, depending on doing it by eye instead. If you want to produce 3D art/models is a well-made program, if you want to produce accurate CAD representations of something I'd find a different program.

SketchUp is supposed to be good, but dunno if it'll run in WINE...
