Blender3D is a freeware, multiplatform and open source 3D modeling (and more) tool.

Here are two more plugins:
- meshIO by ousttrue. Can be used as its own or with Blender. The Swiss Army knife of MMD export plugins. Basically it mostly eliminates the need for PMDE. Uses a dictionary for importing and exporting bones, which means you only have to give only the English name for your bones. Licensed under a permissive license, which means you can freely edit your dictionary script if a bone is missing from the list and distribute these files as long as you keep the file under the same or a compatible license (libpng/zlib license);
- exp_pmx by NYSL. It is ideal for those who can't run PMXE for some reason. It can do some of the shiny PMX sliders. Video (with DL): Uses a separate text file for the dictionary instead of a script, but you have to enable Japanese support beforehand using the script. Requires bone and expression names to be specified in Japanese. Export-only plugin.

Oh, and one more thing regarding exp_pmx: it needs Windows Vista and up or any Linux distribution and Blender 2.74 and up to work.
