>>514791Most people will say Blender, but it depends on if you just want to dabble in 3D for your personal use/amusement, cause it still pays to learn a popular high-end package like Max or Maya, even if it means torrenting them.>>514813Most high-end software with physics simulation can do that fampai
>>514839I want to add that traditional modeling software will only get you so far in 2016, eventually you'll also want to check out some sculpting software as well, like ZBrush, Mudbox, etc. Most of them pretty much require a pen tablet to use, but down the road it'll all be an essential addition, regardless of the type of work you'll decide to specialize in.
