    AutoCAD is beyond expensive and prices the average user completely out of the picture. There is no good reason for the exorbitant rising costs of this software. None!

    If you're talking about Autodesk software the 3D software is Revit, which is amazing, but AutoCAD is much more suited to 2D modelling and doing 3D requires a larger time investment or understanding of procedural coding etc.

    As for Revit, it leaves Sketchup in the dust, but it's also very expensive(I didn't see it on the list even after scrolling down, hmm).

    Onshape vs SketchUp opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Onshape is still a legitimate alternative to SketchUp, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    It's web based. I want native 3D modeling software.

    Linux = browser based, if I wanted browser apps I'd select web for platform.
