    Hi, In school when we are modelling designs for engineering or graphics, we use well to be honest, of the top of my head i can't remember the name of the program, but the problem was it was PC only therefore i can't practise at home because i have a Mac. Does anyone know any Free/Cheap applications for Mac that i could use to design the basics on. (Desks, game console, computer, phone)

    Try Google SketchUp. Easy to use, free (for non-pro version) and works on both Mac and PC.

    Still no idea what you are using?

    Blender (Free)
    Cheetah (Cheap)

    Also worth looking into the Mac beta for Rhino 3D It is free — just register — until official release.

    i know Solidworks 3d Design is really good but it is pricey. i think it's $150 for newest one. But if you only need it for a while you can use trail.
