Most raytracer and rendering programs such as Povray for the
PC's and Lightwave for Silicon Graphics computers can map 2d
images onto 3d objects. In Povray you can also use an image to
specify a height field (3d object representing an array of heights or elevations). I'm not sure what others can do this but
I know Povray can and (if my memory serves me right) so does
Lightwave.

    I have had a look around the web for you and one of the best FREE 3d editors I could find is Genesis 3D and its pretty smart.It's packed with features and get this, its realtime so what you see is what you get and I'm sure it will fulfill your task

You can download Genesis for FREE from

http://www.silicond.demon.co.uk/

Im assuming you are using either win95/98 or NT although there is a version for 3.1
