3D Space Maps

Does anyone know a way to make a 3D map of space? I need to make my own, it's part of research for a story.

Yeah like that! But I need to actually MAKE it, it's for a fictional story and I would like to be able to make maps of planetary/asteroidal orbits (it's a sci fi story obviously) and the ships/stations around them.

Autodesk has some amazing 3D modeling software, a little expensive though.

Autodesk has a project where students can get the different programs for free. The software is a student version, so most of the finished objects will have watermarks. The only downside is the uphill learning curve, the programs can be intimating if you're not use to Autodesk format.

Also, they're is a game called Universe Sandbox. It allows you to create solar systems, planets, and other space related objects. This game may fit your needs.
