Silo for Mechanical Objects

I'm a hobbyist and dabbler in 3D programs, and have been using Sketchup for much of my experiments. However, it's become too limiting for me, and I'm thinking of upgrading to Silo, which has been recommended.

Most of the promo materials focus on organic shapes. While I certainly appreciate its ability (and look forward to experimenting with) to do organic forms, how does it perform for more angular objects, such as "industrial" starships and weapons?

Any feedback from users is greatly appreciated.

Silo is very much a hard surface modeling tool, so spaceships, vehicles, weapons, buildings, objects of any kind, are really easy to create in Silo. I personally think it's harder to create something organic with it.

Excellent. Thank-you for the feedback.

The pricing seems pretty reasonable, so I will give it a try.

Blender is FREE. Perhaps you should give that a try.
