: what are your favorite tools for visualizing new and designs?

If you wanted to communicate how a proposed intersection or roadway redesign would look and feel to the public, what would you use?
I'm looking specifically for examples of tools that are fairly easy to use by non-experts and can create realistic renderings suitable for engagement.

Thank you!

@DrTCombs This is something I'm tempted to do for a road near me. I'd probably draw over a satellite image using Inkscape, or maybe Blender3D. The latter definitely has a steep learning curve though.


@SamP20 Oh yeah I spent a hot minute trying to figure out Blender3D before I realized I was in far, far over myhead.
