Does anyone know of a good free voxel editor and/or voxel-to-mesh converter?

Thermite3D is a voxel-based game engine. It isn't an editor per se. It does, however, have a list of voxel editors on its wiki here: Thermite-Recommended Voxel Editors.

Of those, Sproxel, Voxel, and QBlock are all free. Paint3d and Everygraph (Voxel3d) have trial versions, and one not on the list, Qubicle Constructor, has a crippled trial as well.

Note that the Thermite-Recommended Voxel Editors wiki page has moved to – milliams Mar 7 '13 at 12:59

I wrote one for my Voxel Roguelike. You can get it here: link

If you need some info on the file format, just post a question on the blog and I can help you out.

That looks amazing! – kaoD Feb 23 '12 at 11:47

There's also Thermite3D. I've looked at it a little but haven't actually used it. The forum community is very friendly and helpful, however.

PolyVox (previously part of Thermite3D) can now be found at a new site. – milliams Apr 23 '12 at 23:07

You could try this one, though I think it's not being maintained anymore (still, it's open-source, should you want to mess with the code).
