Are there programs for creating 3D models of robots before building them?

Osgeld

yes they are cad programs and can range from free to slap your momma expensive

also most 3d modling programs will provide the tools needed to make a scale model

anything involving 3D and measurements will have a steep learning curve, but its not impossible

What about 3D modeling programs such as 3D Studio MAX and 3D game engines such as Unity 3D, CryEngine, and UDK? I tried to use Microsoft Robot Studio and V-Rep Pro (http://coppeliarobotics.com/) but I don't know how to use them.

Are you trying to create a functional model  or just a 3-d picture of a robot ?
