The pics in your link look like basic flat-sided objects. There's no reason you can't create them natively in AE without Invigorator, so long as you don't need curved edges (or anything else that isn't flat).
You'll need a face-on layer/graphic of each visible face of the objects. Orient and position each layer to make up your 3 dimensional object.
You can create the washing machines in their own comps, then precompose them with collapsed transformations into your main comp.
Like Andrew said, building them in AE might be your quickest solution. Look at Stu Maschwitz's blog post for some inspiration:
Your other two options are, like you said Zaxwerks Invigorator Pro and waiting for AE CS4 and PS CS4, but these two options require you to build the 3D models in something like the free Google SketchUp.

thanks guys for our input, I've ended up trying to go the invigorator way cos i have other objects that aren't flat sided...however i think zaxwerks can't handle that many objects- once i start seriously duplicating it crashes every time i go to save :(
Rick- i actually did your tutorials many years ago- ther are very useful- thanks for the reminder! :)
