Hi ppl, not directly related with openGL but what is the best/easiest CAD software to start, in order to build some complex models for opengl?
Depends on what kind of models you want to make and if you want to pay for the software or not…
There are lots of them, 3D Studio/GMAX are pretty common but there are lots of others.
You don’t have to use CAD software. 3D Studio Max, for example, is not CAD software. It’s animation software. My preference is to model with another animation package called Lightwave. My LW models are converted into OpenGL code using a translator called 3D Exploration. It is not a trivial process.
