Blender is a free, powerful, 3D modeling program. If you have not already downloaded and installed it, do so.

Open blender and delete the default object. (Keep the camera and light if you want to render)

Click Add => Mesh => Circle. On the lower left panel you should see "Add Circle". Make this circle have 36 verticies and any radius.

If you are talking about animation, yes, you may use this model like every other model in blender... So yes.
