Re: 3D Software?

CAD data imported into a polygon-based program requires extensive cleanup and/or rebuilding. The process that converts parametric data to a polygonal mesh is inexact, to say the least, and the resulting mesh usually unsuitable for professional work. Since you'd have to learn poly modeling to rebuild it anyway (or invest in decent retopologizing software, which still takes time to learn), you'd be better off just jumping in to modeling directly.
