    For what its worth there are some built in mesh creation functions in Direct3D X Helper Library. I think teapot, sphere and cube come to mind.

    Code:
    D3DXCreateTeapot( ... );
    You'll need

    d3dx8.lib and d3dx8.h

    You probably mean an actual program to make models and them convert them into X file's and use the meshes though...in this case I'm not really sure. I use 3D Studio Max but it certainly isn't free I know DirectX comes with a 3DS -> X File converter so if MilkShape or any free modeler can export to 3DS you are set.
