It’s always had great features for architectural modeling, but this new version brings even more to the freeform table. New features increase the options you have for dynamic modeling of roofs and stairs and also deliver an array other geometry shaping goodness, including direct modeling with new parametric features, updated deformation tools and new NURBS functionality that makes fixing up those forms a lot easier. Here’s a look.

    I have been trying it and created several designs so far, including things i didn’t know I could make, like a monster truck, a motorcycle, an airplane. I even designed a paintball marker in it as well and 3D printed it. Its not only for architecture.
