Are There Any Free 3D Design Apps?

  • I recommend either Blender or Fusion 360.

    "Lens Studio supports the FBX and OBJ file formats which can be generated by many 3D tools."


    The FBX file format is very feature rich and can contain data like mesh, animation, skeleton, textures and more. OBJ files only contain mesh and texture but offer high import compatibility. 


    Generally speaking, if you're exporting your own 3D objects, it's recommended to use the FBX format and follow our 3D Object Export guide. For 3D objects that are downloaded from other sources, like Sketchfab and Google's Poly, it's recommended to use the OBJ format for the highest compatibility."

    From the 3d object import guide


    Hope this helps

  • Autodesk Fusion 360 lets you add textures, colors and highlights, calculate angles and test reliability. For example, when designing mechanics, you should test functionality, durability, potential, and quality. Because Fusion 360 offers CAD, CAM, and CAE options, many businesses use the platform to design and prototype their products. Once you get used to the user interface and controls (it takes time), your workflow is limited only by your imagination.
