Good Question.

The easy way to start is to Customize using a co-creator


create an item from a Sketch

Learn 3D modeling software, SketchUp is free and possibly the easiest to learn

Blender is also free but has a steeper learning curve

If you are a student you can download 3D software for free from Autodesk like
Inventor, 3DS Max, Maya,

Check out our tutorials on getting started too http://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/

Good luck
