Blender 3D An Alternative for Costly 3D Suites

Arguably the biggest hurdle for someone considering learning 3d is the steep prices of most 3d suites. Industry recognized programs used by studios or influential professionals cost anywhere between 1000 to 5000 USD for the full featured product. Some of the companies that produce these programs offer packages at more affordable costs but with fewer features, and some provide a time limited use of the full featured application for learning purposes.
