Need help with 3d modeling in opengl

Hi, I need a 3d modeling program which would help me build objects which I could then use in my opengl code.
Does anyone have any suggestions on a program that a beginner could use and how to import an object from that program into my opengl code?

Cluchess just posted a link (in the advanced section) to some code and .dll that does just that with .3ds files. I know there are others as well, but this was the most recent that I’ve seen.
