There are many different programs that can produce printable 3D models. Most 3D modeling software will output the filetype we can convert, the .stl file. Solid modeling CAD software is much more likely to produce a successful print than surface modeling software. A few popular options are SolidWorks, Inventor, 3DS Max, Blender, Creo, AutoCAD, Rhino 3D, Sketchup and Tinkercad.

If you don't want to create your own, you can check the MakerBot Thingiverse archives for objects, models, and designs that you can bring in to be printed.
