I’m a landscape architect who is thinking about getting into 3D modeling. I want to create 3D scenes based on 2D landscaping/architectural plans for sales presentation purposes.
I’m examining different options for software. I have been considering SketchUp but was told by someone with a great deal of 3D modeling experience that it is not very sophisticated modeling software. 3ds Max was recommended but I’m not sure if I want to pay the hefty price for it.
So my questions are: Is Blender better than SketchUp for what I want to do? Will it do what 3ds Max does? Is there another software that I should be considering?
