Questions regarding 3D printing

I'd like to try out making my own figures and details through 3D printing (especially figures, since most commercial figures look like toys compared to the precision and detail of vehicles). I've never done this before, but I'm fairly conversant with design software like Photoshop, and willing to pick up the skills necessary -- plus, I think in my case it would be the easier path compared to traditional sculpting. What I'd like to find out, from anyone who has experience in this field, are two things:

1. What 3D design program would you recommend, and why (must run on Mac); and

2. What service would you recommend for the final output?
