Does anyone know of any decent free 3D modeling programs that are available for Apple computers? Thanks.

You could also try SketchUp 6, from Google. Simple but great for quickly putting something together. I've found this particularly helpful when doing architectural/furniture work.

DAZ released Bryce 5.5 as a free download when 6.0 came out. It's not as powerful as some of the others but it's pretty easy to use. Available for OS X and Windows at Download.com

Best modeler out there, in my opinion. I do all my modeling with SketchUp and then render with other programs (when I do actually render).

Blender > All on the free 3D front.

Maya Personal Learning Edition would be the best except it water marks your renders so is not really an option unless you are using it to test if you want to buy the full version of Maya which is slightly more expensive :p.
