If you really want to do 3D modelling in an application running completely on the Mini9 then perhaps you should look at Blender.

Blender is the free Open Source 3D content creation suite which is available for all major operating systems under the GNU General Public License.

For the Mini9 running Ubuntu it is already available from the Add/Remove Applications menu option so it’s simply a case of selecting the program, and installing it.

Here it is running in full screen mode:


Rendering seemed to work OK too.

What is the future for applications on mini9 and other similar devices, will they all have to be free?

So far, you have a full suite of Office style applications, can write and develop your own applications in a variety of different languages and can do 3D modelling and rendering all of these for free.
