What 3D modeling software should I use to make infographics?

What is the best 3D software (preferably for Mac) for doing stuff besides modeling motorcycle parts and video game characters? I'm primarily interested in creating things like infographics in 3D

I don't necessarily mind if they ALSO do things like making parts, but if there's software that's made more from an artist angle than from an engineer angle. On the other hand, maybe to do this kind of precise infographic work I need a tool made for engineers. tl;dr I know nothing about 3D software, and I'm ready to learn whatever's the "best".
I don't think I have any budget constraints on new software, so let me know any and all suggestions.
I'm also curious how things like this are designed/created
. I imagine some sort of 3D modeling software, but I could be mistaken (and I have no idea how they'd export it to be able to be printed/cut/folded)
Any tips in terms of representing data in 3D forms would also be appreciated.
Thanks a bunch,
