If there is no version for Linux available then you might consider using them under Wine. Look into Wine site to see if the softwares would run in wine or not.
Or else you could find out Linux equivalent for those.

Those programs don't seem to work in Wine (check the AppDB for lists of apps working in Wine). Blender is a great alternative, though:

These were created with Blender:

3D Tool Comparisons:

Worst case, you could run your software in a virtual machine (VirtualBox, VMware, Qemu/KVM).
