For those of you that might be interested in Blender to visualize your robots or create 3D meshes for 3D printing I cannot suggest strongly enough getting this program. It is free, open source and highly supported.
Some of us use high end programs, i.e. 3D Max, Maya, Solid Works, Autodesk Inventor and on and on, these programs cost as much as a small car. And truthfully the learning curve is as steep for these packages than for Blender.
@Richard R, I went to blender and found their sister site for training. https://cloud.blender.org/join or this one I am going to look at; https://cloud.blender.org/training/3d-printing/

Upgrade to ARC Pro
Synthiam ARC Pro is a cool new tool that will help unleash your creativity with programming robots in just seconds!
@ Robot Doc, Go to that training link in the first post. The video tutorials are great at bringing you up to speed
Also, using the laptop trackpad is not recommended - use a real mouse. this is because many of the commands will require holding SHIFT or CTRL or ALT when dragging objects around. The middle mouse button is used often as well, something that we're not normally used too.

I was happy to import stl files and create ezbit assemblies for animation.
Like DJ said, it's not all that difficult once you get in to it.
