A while ago I went looking for 3D CAD again, after giving up on TurboCAD in disgust. Found FreeCAD (https://www.freecadweb.org). 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.
