I know for sure that Maya is available under linux, it's great software but of course it's commercial. Wings 3D are available under linux, but it's young project
progeCAD from progesoft it's free for private use and you can try it under wine
that is all I can say, I don't know a lot of free modeling software

For Free alternatives to AutoCAD, there's QCAD and LinuxCAD.
CATIA running on *nix is doing an emulation.
