I have to make some 3d expo booth designs. I worked with 3D Max before but I am not sure if that's the right tool for this kind of thing. Also I was not very good at it.

Some examples:

Is there a good and easy software for this kind of 3D design? Where can I find library resources for this kind of things?

Bonus points if the software is open source or freeware!

I think SketchUp would be a very good fit for this. It is very beginner friendly and the basic version is free.

A really handy feature that would be a benefit for this specifically is the prefab library that's included

Egg Chair Prefab

You won't have to spend hours modelling a chair/counter/whatever if you can find something close enough in the 3D warehouse.

The built in rendering isn't anything to write home about, but there are many plugins available to produce a much more polished look

Using "3ds Max" will be more helpful for you but you have to learn using Max by youtube or any professional course

Can you please give some hints or is there an tutorial for "3ds Max" (link?)? BTW: Welcome to GD.SE! – Kurt Oct 19 '14 at 9:54

3Ds max is best for stall design. You do not need to learn advanced modeling skills, you need to know only basic modeling, texturing, lighting and rendering skills. There multiple tutorials available for this purpose on internet. You will get very good speed & rendering output through 3ds max. There are also free 3d models websites available on the interne, which can be used in your projects for free. Also there are stalls and stall components available on the internet. See this link: Download stalls Also this: Reception desks download This models can be used in your projects. You can download max files for stalls and reception desks. You can learn 3ds max and v-ray settings for the stalls from the files downloaded.

The op asked not for models, it was asked for a software, if possible free, if possible not 3d Max, because the op was not good in using it. This smells to be spam for the linked models and company ... – Kurt Apr 23 at 14:36
