Another great way to introduce students to 3D modelling is through sculpting packages. Traditionally these have been expensive and required high end computers to run them. Now however, basic computing power is sufficient to run these packages and there are now online sculpting packages such as Sculptgl.

It is a nice alternative to the very technical tools that require some familiarity with 3D concepts such as Blender or even Sketchup. Sculpting is very intuitive like painting and drawing and students can just simply play with the shapes until they begin to figure out how to achieve their desired result.
