Can anyone recommend a 3D modeling freeware tool, preferably catering to 2D graphics aswell, for someone new to the digital arts and interior design?

I've located some possible solutions here and here, but would value the advice of an expert before downloading anything.

Stop looking for freebies. Some software is good enough

Thanks KP, that's extremely helpful ...

...but be that as it may, what I'm actually looking for is a recommendation/advice on some software, that is good enough that they choose to give it away.

What could? My response to your short ambiguous response(s)?
by Xandar45 / January 19, 2006 3:48 PM PST

Or are you suggesting that software (with an emphasis on freeware) advice/recommendations are forbidden within this forum? As opposed to those I've witnessed throughout other CNET fora, I mean. If so, is that on all levels ...including appropriate ones?

If a newbie to image editing asked for a recommendation (freeware-specifiic, for example), I would, from my own (admittedly limited) experience, suggest that they might like to check out Irfanview. And hey, what the hell, here's the link. Enjoy. Where's the harm or difficulty in that?

I honestly don't see what the big deal is...

Again, I'd welcome a reply from anyone in this conference as regards the 3D/2D Modeling query, if it's not too much trouble.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
