does anybody know about a pc software for designs an 3d animation BUT, which allows me to designs mainly mechanical things or devices?... mmm let me put it this way: a software which could let me design a clock in and outside so i can see how it works would really help me :O....

i was thinking about turbocad 3d or bender, any ideas?

please help!!

wrong

use autoCAD, solidworks or catia

EDIT: maya or blender could do it but because you said mechanical i'm assuming you want some sort of accurate measurements and so on? if so you need to use CAD software, I havent heard of turboCAD

I believe for mechanical modelling and animation you really should use 3Ds MAX rather than Maya, this is from 4 years of experience of both.

I don't know much about it but I think AutoCAD is the way to go here.

I created a fully working steam machine in SolidWork as my school project. It's a very good tool for create and emulate how different parts interact with each other.
