3d software for advanced kitchen design?

by divebel / September 21, 2008 8:30 AM PDT


I am looking for a 3d software for mac, to better my design portfolio for client imaging, etc. A colleague uses 3d Studio Max but he is on PC, where as I am on mac. For work so far, I use a dedicated kitchen design software which is well-known in the industry, and it is pretty good, but I would really like to take my images/environments to the next level. The kitchens are very modern and unusual and with extra work on an advanced design software, they could really come alive.

I heard that Cinema 4d can be pretty good, but with so many different softwares to choose from out there, I am not quite sure which direction to head. I need to choose something that I know will create great results if I put the work in, but at the same time doesn't baffle me with science!!

I am on a macbookpro Mac OS X 10.5.4. - 2.5Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB 667 Mhz DDR2 SDRam.

I would be really grateful for any advice.

Thanks for your time.
