Unless you're doing something like printing some kind of sculpture, in which case something like Zbrush might be better.

Cad software is only if you are wanting an accurate model considering stl turns my cad built models into poly on export. The free Repetier-Host software uses stl and you must make sure to use a hi face count to get rid of the faceted look on large curves. Don't know what the newer multi material printers use but surely a refined model will give better results even on sculptures.

Stl has been the printing standard until recently.

truespace has stl export so will be useful in 3d printing listed or not for awhile..
