I use Cinema 4d. I wish I had Xara 3D, but they dont make a Mac version. I've emailed them before and they said they weren't planning on making version. So I emailed them back just saying that they should definitely reconsider making a Mac version! I haven't gotten an email back since though.

Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

Graphic design or 3D modeling? For design I use the Adobe Creative Suite (CS5.5 Design Premium at work, CS5 Master Collection at home). Oh, and Lightroom for a lot of my photography work.
I don't have any 3D modeling software apart from Blender but I never really got the hang of it. I'd like to learn 3D but don't want to put in the hard yards

To the OP: I'm not sure that "graphic design" is the common term (at least in the Mac community) for 3D programs like Cinema4D. I think the common term is, um, well, 3D design.

There are many 3D design programs available for the Mac, ranging from architectural to landscapes to character modelling. Here's a quick list of some options.

A lot of companies that swore they'd never go Mac have reconsidered over the past few years, so maybe Xara will "see the light" at some point. If they don't, every Mac sold today is more than capable of running Windows so you could just go that route.
How could you not go mac! I absolutely love my mac! I don't think I ever want to go back to pc's and windows!
