Cheetah3D is an OpenGL API-based 3D modeling, rendering and animation package for Mac OS X, with an easy learning curve. It offers a wide range of 3D modeling tools form polygon modeling over subdivision surfaces to spline modeling and supports UV unwrapping, texture painting, PDF import, HDRI, radiosity, and more. The new v3.2 adds support for rendering caustics (e.g. light patterns caused by the light focused behind a lens or a glass of water), a single unified light source making ieasier to switch between light types, and a fast binary file format.
