Renderboy
RenderBoy is an integrated object based 3D boolean solid modeler and photo-realistic "ray-tracing" renderer. What does that mean? Well, using RenderBoy's simple graphic user interface, you can create photo-realistic 3D graphics in an intuitive what-you-see- is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) point&click fashion. You can specify how your designs should look (dull, shiny, mirrored, textured, etc) and add working light sources to illuminate your design. New with Version 2.2.0, RenderBoy can also create stereographic images. http://maccentral.macworld.com/news/0202/15.renderboy.php http://www.render-boy.com

3D Canvas
Freeware modeller/raytracer/animator. 3D Canvas is a freeware real-time 3D modeling and animation tool that incorporates an intuitive drag-and-drop approach to 3D modeling.

Complex models can be constructed from simple 3D primitives, or created using 3D Canvas' Object Building Tools. Modeling tools are provided to deform, sculpt, and paint 3D objects.

Creating an animated scene is as simple as positioning the objects within your scene for each point in time in your animation. 3D Canvas will ensure that the resulting animation runs smoothly. No complicated scene timelines are required. Your animation can be stepped through a frame at a time, viewed in real-time, or recorded to a Video (AVI) file so that you can distribute your creation.

Tool roll-up groups allow you to customize the 3D Canvas interface so that only those items you use most frequently are visible. And if you need access to a less frequently used feature, the tool roll-up is always one click away.

Since 3D Canvas imports many popular 3D file formats, many of the public domain 3D models available on the Internet can be incorporated in your scenes.

3D Canvas is freeware, no registration is required.
