Software that simulates a wooden drawing doll?


Question

I am learning to draw figures, and a wooden doll (pictured below) is a lot of help. But I'm having issues keeping a specific angle in regards to the doll. Even a little shift in position can make the drawing off.

Is there a program that provides a 3D dummy figure which can be adjusted to any position like a wooden doll? This would enable me to keep the angle exactly the same without having to worry about movement.

In the realm of "Free" alternatives, two pop into my mind that I use:

Blender

A free 3d Rendering engine which Offers a variety of rendering and animation options for creating photos and movies.

EDIT: Since the original request was for the wooden mannequin, here's that exact model already done for you in blender for free: Wooden Mannequin - Rigged by jgilhutton. (The actual model doesn't come with the chair, that's an additional 3dmodel)

Daz3d

A free 3d rendering engine similar to Poser, but with a "premium" shop where you purchase models.

For either of these options, you should key in on the words "rigging", "rigged" or "fully rigged" models. Those models have all of the joints to act like the puppet, where you can move the joints and the model acts like it has a connected skeleton that can be animated.
