Free 3D modeling programs
Blender 3D - Blender is one of the most powerful 3D modeling programs out there. However, with great power comes a steep learning curve, at least on the pre-2.5 versions. 2.5 is much simpler to use.

Wings 3D - Wings 3D is a decent 3D program, known for its subsurface modeling ability. Its learning curve is shallower than Blenders', too.

Anim8or - Anim8or is another average-level modeling program. Its speciality is animation(funny that).

Truespace - Truespace 7.6 is now available free of charge. It's a very solid modeling platform, and fairly user-friendly.

Softimage XSI Mod Tool - Softimage's Mod Tool is a cut-down version of their standard 3D modeling package. It's designed for modders, which is what we are, essentially. Definitely worth checking out.

Gmax - The honourable mention. Gmax is getting old though.

This list is by no means a conclusive, end-all list, but those are the most popular and perhaps best free 3D modeling programs around. You can find more here, and here.



Non-free 3D modeling programs

Milkshape 3D - A solid, although fairly basic program, Milkshape 3D only costs about 25 dollars, which is very cheap. For modding and game design, it's a good choice, especially for low-budget indie users.

Quote from MuffinLove
3dsmax, cgtuts.com
I wasn't planning on adding max and maya and other expensive programs, because if you already have it you know what it is, and if you don't have it, it costs A LOT of money, so most people would just torrent it. I don't want to support illegal torrents in any way so yeah :/

I'll add cgtuts.

I do stuff and thingies... Try widening and reducing the number of small nooks and crannies to correct the problem.

Show them your butt, and when you do, slap it so it creates a sound akin to a chorus of screaming spider monkeys flogging a chime with cacti. Only then can you find your destiny at the tip of the shaft.

Adobe made some older programs free to use. Maybe these are helpful, too.
