    what do you want to do? archviz, circuit boards, schematics, auto and engine design?
    what's your budget?

    ^What he said...
    For solid modeling Solidworks or Inventor, they're really similar and both have advantages, I prefer Inventor.

    you could probably use any freeware CAD soft or the GiMP with vector graphics. Graph paper does the job as well

    If you want to create a 3d model: Google Sketchup should be suitable for what you want to do. Ive never used it but I've seen plenty of basic conceptual design work done with it.

    But if its just for the layout (top-down view of the controller) then just use something like Inkscape (vector graphics app) or Gimp to do your layout. Just make sure that when you create your graphics layout / 3d model, you do it in real-world units (inches / millimeters etc.) as opposed to pixels or something else.
