How to make a 3d modeller?

I’m looking to make a program similiar to 3d Studio Max…they layout anyways…I want to know where the best place to start is. I want to have the 4 display windows probably using a splitter, and have the toolbar on the left side rather than the right. I would also like to have the menus for exiting and saving etc. displayed along the top. Any suggeestions of sites to start reading about, etc?
