Hi all,

Yes I've been working with Blender, a 3D program, to create models. 
Blender is free & open source (see www.blender.org)

I have developed more stuff for creating 3d models and there are plenty 
of resources only in the form of tutorials and howto's, whcih include 3d 
printing. I have previously used shapeways and I'm currently trying to 
use the 3d printer we have. Shapeways has a good tutorial on 3d printing 
with the STL format and it can be used for most 3d printing systems.
