I have recently discovered some tutorials on youtube for Wings3D and what I know about this program is based only on what I have seen it do.
I would like to get some feedback from users that are familiar with the program and understand it’s pros and cons.
I want to start learning this program as a replacement to Blenders modeling tool set, not replace it entirely. I haven’t tried Wings3D yet, I just want to figure out if its worth it.
So far I’m impressed with :
1.The general look and feel of the UI. I think it’s very smart and the commands are very intuitive.
2.Circularise. I haven’t seen blender or any program be able to do the things that you can do with this function in Wings3D.
3.Right mouse click context sensitive is IMO the best way to go that I’ve seen so far.
4.The multiple ways you can interact with a tool based on lmb or rmb etc.
5.The information system at the top ( length and other geometric information )
6.Work planes. Blender doesn’t have that.
What I have seen that are current limitations :
1.No proper boolean operations.
2.No follow path for easily creating profiles.
So my conclusions until now would be that Wings3D is very good at what it does. IMO it’s better than Modo ( very popular Modeling program ) , not to mention Blender based on what I have seen so far.
Please give your suggestions or what you have experienced so far, what you have used it for and what other useful information you might have in order to help me make a better decision.
I look forward to hearing from you !
