Resource Description Tinkercad is a wonderfully simply and easy to use online CAD editor that you can use to create 3D models for printing.

There's much more of a learning curve here than tinkercad so if you're new to 3D modelling stick with Tinkercad. SketchUp is another good CAD program, but again there's quite a learning curve you've got to get through before diving into anything too complex.
