a very detailed turorial for rhino3D can be found here:
Wunwinglows Rhino Tutorial, Sukhoi Su7

For prices you may check US-dealers for it. As far as could I find out
the price for the complete package (be sure to get hold of a student's
licence) is from $ 195 to $ 495. (The commercial licence is $ 1,695).

McNeel Rhino3D offers two comprensive training books and also a comprehensive
tutorial for marine design.
(Other tutorials available are irrelevant for card modelling).

As said before: Rhino3D is absolutely perfect to design the model's
shape and outline and to unroll all surfaces. To take material thickness
into account is a challenging task within the Rhino3D designing process,
because Rhino3D estimates a thickness of "zero" as default.
As always practice is necessary

See attached some pictures having been filed during the design
process of the Saint Lorenz Cathedral in Nuremberg ....
(The first five are renderings from the virtual 3Dmodel)

Cheers
Thomas

pretty cool. the workflow looks about the same as AC3d.

I put up a series of videos on my site that follows through as I design a model in Rhino:

Murph's Models - Videos

I dunno how helpful they'll be, but they show exactly what I do. I had to stop the videos before I finished the model, because recording was slowing me down, and I had a deadline.

One thing I do when designing in order to get parts edges to line up, is I design it as a paper model.

After posting this question several years ago, many have contributed to what I finally purchased.

From all the Rhino comments, tried the Rhino 5 for the thirty day test you can do for free. Created a few things, but did not complete them to final model print. Decided it would work if couldn't find something else.

Aspire, Sheet Lightning, and a few others that had free test periods. Decided to keep looking.

Talking with one of my customers, sell welding and safety supplies, one of the local Engineering Firms Owner/Designer was talking about AutoCAD.

I asked him what he used, he said Autodesk Inventor 2016. We talked about the benefits of going with Inventor for my projects.
1) Ease of use since already know AutoCAD 2013
2) Flatten Command does just that to 3D models
3) Unlimited painting options

Only real issue is the price. Way more than my 2000 Chevy S10 Blazer is worth....

Today is the day it ended up on my computer. Now to follow Aaron's 3D video in Rhino to see what and how to design 3D!

Thank you everybody, just re-read all the posts! Great projects posted with outstanding reasons to try that particular program!!

Mike
