    Ranking

    If you are starting to design or just to manage 3D files you may have to choose with 3D Designing Software is the right one for you.

    So we created this table with the information you can find on this wikipedia page.

    We decided to add a column to the original one:  Characters that is the number of Characters of the relative Wikipedia page. The longer the Wikipedia page, the more common the software should be.

    The other columns are:

    Name: quite obvious

    License: basically if you have to pay for it or if it’s free.

    3D Rendering: if 3D Rendering is supported or not.

    These are the different kind of Licenses:

    BSD: BSD licenses are a family of permissive free software licenses, imposing minimal restrictions on the redistribution of covered software. This is in contrast to copyleft licenses, which have reciprocity share-alike requirements.

    CommercialCommercial software, or seldom payware, is computer software that is produced for sale or that serves commercial purposes. Commercial software can be proprietary software or free and open source software

    Freemium: Freemium is a pricing strategy by which a product or service (typically a digital offering or application such as software, media, games or web services) is provided free of charge, but money (premium) is charged for proprietary features, functionality, or virtual goods.

    Freeware: Freeware is proprietary software that is available for use at no monetary cost. In other words, freeware may be used without payment but may usually not be modified, re-distributed or reverse-engineered without the author’s permission.

    GNU GPL: The GNU General Public License (GNU GPL or GPL) is a widely used free software license, which guarantees end users the freedom to run, study, share and modify the software.

    GNU LGPL: The GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL) is a free software license published by the Free Software Foundation (FSF). The license allows developers and companies to use and integrate software released under the LGPL into their own (even proprietary) software without being required by the terms of a strong copyleft license to release the source code of their own components.
