Any 3d Cad software available for linux?

Been playing with Draftsight, and loving it, but now looking to try out some 3d stuff if some are available. Anybody know?

There is Blender, but it's very challenging to learn and I believe it's more of a 3d Studio Max type of software. I like to run Sketchup through wine, mixed results, but it does work (in some ways faster and better then on windoze).

I'll have to look into that. Wine has always been a pain in the past though.

There is freecad which look promising but is still rough on the edges.

You might have better luck at these forums.

Also look into MeshCam, runs on Wine.
