      Simplistic modeling, excellent UV mapping interface, obj and gltf/glb export, great mouse interface. Buggy but the best free and simple 3d modeler.

      Natron vs Blender opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Natron is still a legitimate alternative to Blender, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      tvgoing1 it does not build 3d models, it has no game design, natron is mostly use for videos, and it doesnt allow 3d models in the program

      It does compositing too. If this isn't an alternative, you might want to take Nuke off as well

      erisdiscord Cinema 4D is a professional alternative to Blender the only other contender is Maya but I consider Cinema 4D to be the best non-free 3D editor suite out there.
