Hello,

Modo is effectively a great program. Personnaly, i choose Silo, just to be in line with Fugazi's tutorials. Wanted to learn how to model my own stuff. Fugazi 1968 did a very great serie to learn how to model your own dress, pants, shoes, etc...

Already had 4 modeling programs, finally, Silo is a very good and affordable program. It also has tools for easy UVMapping.

Just a suggestion,

Hope it helps

i have silo .. since i have MODO i never even used it anymore..

Silo is good ..but not in on the same level as Modo..

I agree with you on the price Silo is a low priced tool but its ONLY modeling..

One thing i learned the hard way .. buying cheap in the beginning might be even more expensive in the end ..

I have Silo, Hegagon "before it was free", Vue, carrara, zbrush "sold it btw" ,shade ..etc etc..

At the End ..it was 5 times more expesive as bying One tool from the start ..

BEST advice keep your money save ..TRY em all out for at least 2 weeks and think about hwat you want and need .. like UV mapping render option texture baking etc etc ..

It depends on your budget and sense of commitment to a tool.

I would love to buy modo. There is no way I can afford $1200.00 as a hobbyist. If I were a professional modeller and were looking for the optimal tool and price was not a consideration, I wouldn't hesitate: modo would be my first choice.

I have Silo. It is a decent modeller and there are some great tutorials written for it (Fugazi). It's currently on special as well (well, was on special from SM, not sure if this is still true).

Then, if your budget is really tight - that would be most of us battlers, I reckon - there's always Wings3D... or Blender3D. Blender is full-featured, with more to come, but some find it a bit difficult to learn. However, there is a lot of support - tutorials and videos and more - and you can't beat the price.

Well then Check out the MODO luxology forums .. often .. the marketplace forums has people selling their Modo .. for 50% etc etc and you are then ligit to upgrade for discount etc etc..

Modo is a great application, but I haven't used it in about a year, because i'm used to a non-destructive modeling workflow, and Modo doesn't, or didn't at the time, didn't offer this. Some sort of non-linear workflow, I suppose, could be had through reorganizing the command history options, but I'd prefer a much more parametric workflow, where modifiers, deformers, or even polygon and edge operations could be stacked and reorganized very simply in the process, as in the Modifier Panel of 3dsmax, or even to a lesser degree, hypergraph in Maya.

Have the newer versions added any kind of non-linear modeling features?

The more I understand Blender the more I love it. I'm still using Lightwave, which as a great modeler, but this days, Blender is a really GREAT software.

I use both Modo and Silo. They are both great programs. However, if you are new to modelling then I would suggest Silo and Fugazi's tutorials. Blender and Wings 3D seem to be good free alternatives.
