Question

I really want to create something mesh in blender and I was wondering what makes it mesh? Is there a button that changes the object to mesh? Or do you upload it as mesh? I just don't want to go through the whole building process to find out at the end that it's not mesh.

In Blender when you create something it is usually mesh. There are also other objects types in Blender except mesh (like curves, NURBS objects). You can convert those into mesh in Blender.

When you plan to export something from Blender to Second Life all objects must be mesh before the export because Second Life accepts only mesh objects.

How to export?

In Blender menu: "File, export, Collada (Default) (.dae)"

Then from "Operator Presets" select:
"Second Life Rigged" (<-- clothes usually are rigged)
or
"Second Life Static"

It's good to select also:
"Apply Modifiers"
"Selection Only"

After you have exported the file from Blender, you can import it to Second Life by using the viewer.
Fom the viewer menu select: "Build, Upload, Model"

Make an easy experiment to see how this works:
• Create a simple cube in Blender
• Export it to .DAE file
• Import it to Second Life
