Meshlab

Meshlab is a free and easy program to use – it does much the same thing as Wings 3D but has a far more intuitive interface which makes working on, importing and exporting a model so much better.

It obvious what to do from the start and the online Wiki (http://meshlab.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/MeshLab_Documentation) is excellent.

Here I have imported the Maserati car Collada file that I extracted from the Google Sketchup .KMZ file earlier.

Meshlab manipulates, scales sizes, renders limited colours quickly and easily.

It also has a lot of export options for transferring output files to different formats of model.

Here the Maserati is being exported to the .OBJ format that can be imported into a more professional graphics package like Blender or Maya.
