Time was when 3D sculpting packages cost a lot of money and needed some serious hardware to run. Now, you can run a sculpting package in the browser on a fairly standard machine.

Sculptgl offers free sculpting online through a browser app. I have just been working with students to do some 3D sculpting as part of their online STEM classes. This is a realy great way to explore 3D modelling as it requires very little technical knowledge. Students are free to just sculpt away, have fun and learn something about how digital 3D models are constructed.
