I was just wondering what is the best 3d software to design multicolored objects on a Mac (two stl files or amf file)

That would depend on a few things. One would be what printer would you be using. If you are going to use a printer that has 1.75 filament, then you should check out the Mosaic Manufacturing Palette. It can splice in new colors and has software to take your already present designs and assign colored filament with it.

If you are talking about straightforward design programs, there is a lot of options. Meshmixer is available for MAC and PC.

There are a lot of alternatives for you to look for as it would depend on what you are designing: Architectural, mechanical, organic, etc.

And then there is 'bforartists' (Blender for Artists) which is an artists oriented version of blender. It appears to be a more conventional version of Blender and is fully compatible with Blender add-ons.

And, remember, "Best" is what works for you and the way you think. what is 'best' for one is not best for another.
