There are a lot of freely available lessons and software online. Here are a few we recommend:

Thingiverse - Find and download models other users have created and shared.

Tinkercad - The interactive lessons are perfect for the first time user! This free cloud based 3D modeling software will have you creating your own designs in just a few lessons.

OnShape - Use either the cloud based software or as an app for iOS or Android devices. More sophisticated design tools than Tinkercad.

FreeCAD - Advanced users will appreciate the power and depth of this software that can you download for free to your computer. Video tutorials

MeshMixer - Clean up, modify, and sculpt 3D models. Perfect for separating objects into individual STL files. Video tutorials
