I'm not an architect but due to professional reasons I had to start learning some of the architecture basics. Now I need to use a 3D program which allows me to create a building and walk around it, seeing all the internal and external details.
I've tried the 3D Home Architect Deluxe 6 but the "walk around" tool is not working good with me, since the navigation is done with the mouse. Could someone here please tell me what's the best program available for this purpose? The me is being able to create any kind of building and being able to walk all around it in 3D.
I'd also ask you people to point some sites where I could learn more about those 3D programs and the architecture basics. I'm a complete newbie.
Thanks in advance,

seconded. try http://www.cgarchitect.com for galleries and tutorials on 3d modelling.
i learned all there is to know about sketchup in a day. been using viz for 2 years and i still find new tricks and tools all the time.
