Hi guys, do you know if there were ever any 3D CAD Programs such as Rhino3D or Solidworks available for Macs for the classic OS? Which ones were the most popular ones?

Strata 3D is what I used to use in the early 00s under OS9.

Ashlar Vellum's Cobalt was/is probably the most powerful solid 3D modeller for OS 9.2.2. It is very capable and can render outstanding screen images. It was without a doubt far superior to the other CAD packages, and it is very quick to learn. Most of what is available, even on the PC side, started in the work that Ashlar did.
