I'm new to reprap, and I'm looking to start putting together some designs. I need a piece of modeling software. I'd prefer linux and open source and, of course, capable of generating stl files that reprap can use.

What should I look at?

I took a brief look at blender, but it looked far more focused on 3d animation than I need.

Hi Annirak -- this will get you started...

AOI is the program used to generate the shapes:

Notes about the Reprap host software:

I would also suggest Blender [www.blender.org]. Not the most intuitive interface...but wow, the capabilities. It also exports STLs.
