Fusion360 is free for hobbyists and great for 3D printing. Lots of great tutorials on the web and a very active community. HUGE learning curve for sure. Downside of the free version is printing full size plans on actual paper. Not a prob for 3D printing, but is if you are making stuff out of balsa.

Tinkercad is great for really simple stuff. Super easy to learn, but you'll outgrow it quickly, better to invest the time in learning Fusion360.

Blender is really good for sculpting and "natural" shapes. Also a steep learning curve, but easier than Fusion360. More for artists than engineers maybe?
