    cowy, judging from this and your other questions you have posted, it sounds like you want to design in order to translate your designs into finished objects. I can tell you have the interest and curiosity, but to design for production will also require some mechanical and/or mathematical abilities and a willingness to do precise work. So assuming you have those as well, and since you have no experience, I suggest choosing software that has a vast amount of tutorial documentation available (on youtube and elsewhere).

    SketchUp Make would be a good place to start. 3D House Design Software Free Download | skp | SketchUp

    Then get online and start watching videos. Search for videos that are made for beginners. Start simple and progress at your own pace.

    This is by no means the only software available. Everyone has a unique path to get there. I myself had a good bit of computer programming experience, so my entry into the 3D design and printing world was a program called OpenSCAD (very little tutorial information though). I am currently learning Fusion 360 (lots of tutorial information, but extremely complex).

    Good luck in your pursuit!

    If you join Instructables, they offer free classes in using Fusion 360 3D Design Class. They also have 3D printing classes that start with designing the part in Fusion 360 and printing it.
