Cheetah3D 1.2 is a fast and elegant 3D modeler for Mac OS X with "an easy learning curve. It offers many tools from simple polygon editing over advanced subdivision modeling to boolean operations and Beziere splines."

It also includes the first public preview of Cheetah3D's OpenGL hardware renderer. The $60 application runs on Mac OS X 10.3 or later (only on G4-based Macs).
