google sketchup. not hardcore, but good non the less. (got the idea from BIM way back when.)
there is a plug in feature, so your not limited to just what you have in the program. there is a involute gear plug in that ive been itching to try out and print from shapeways.

it gets some flak for being mostly a 'grafix' 3d program, but works well enough. tho it took me a while to get use to the idea of 'watertight' designs and shapeways has a limit of no more that 3 (or is it 2)_ faces intersecting at any time.
i hear its different from 3d grafix design. tho i never messed with that.
