===Additional notes===It is important to do some light research on what software may be best for you. For example, if you plan to create a very simple shape and know nothing about 3D CAD, TinkerCAD is the software you want to use. If you would like to create a more complicated shape and do not mind investing an hour or two learning the software, Fusion 360 is likely your best bet. If you would like to create a device with moving parts and be able to test its mobility in the software, Inventor is likely going to be helpful. And for character creation, animation, or simulation (stuff not always meant to printed), then Blender, Maya, and 3DS Max will be helpful. There are also other lots of options not some of which are listed here, but be and some are not. Be aware that using those software options in the Design and Build Lab means that none of the staff on hand will may not be able to properly assist you if neededfamiliar with every software option.
