@ EtchedPixels and nosomosnada

What software do you use for your 3D designs?

The motor block is entirely done in OpenSCAD. That's a rather different approach to CAD than drawing type tools - its basically a programmatic approach and as a programmer suits me better than macdinking.

Some of my other bits I'm actually writing apps to do the work and feed into things like OpenSCAD to do the generation of the object. It's how I do some of the 2D stuff as well - easier IMHO to teach a computer to draw Stanier coach sides than do them by hand. That's after all what they are for !
