    I use POV-Ray. It's free, too. It's a ray-tracer actually not a modeller. So you have to hand-code your scenes instead of dragging and dropping.

    I tried Rhino 3d but still at a very beginner level only because i can't find any good step-by-step tutorials on it, i mean, a thorough one.

    I also tried out blender but hate it's interface. Also can't find clear tutorials on it.

    Any one? Any ideas?

    With 3dsmax?

    there are about 6 tutorial "topics" with 2-5 tutorials in each.
    you can try out gmax which is a free pretty easy to use version of 3dsmax. I really like it. find it at http://www.discreet.com/products/gmax/

    Oh and check these out =)

    This one was just for fun. Threw it up in like 10 minutes:

    AWESOME free 3d suite. I prefer to 3dsmax.
    Goto download to get it. The forums are great, as is the community.
