A while ago I went looking for 3D CAD again, after giving up on TurboCAD in disgust.  Found FreeCAD (  Works on Mac, Windows, Linux.  It's a computational solid geometry program.  One of the interesting features is a Python API; the model I created (Rolf Nelson's spaceship) is 5000 lines of Python.  It also has a GUI, of course; I went the Python approach because it let me construct stuff numerically with ease.  It also let me customize the export machinery for POVray output.
