Tinkercad was one of the first reliable web-based editors created with an eye to 3D printing, and it has continued to grow steadily over the years to being more and more capable. It has joined the Autodesk 123D series of apps.
Tinkercad is an easy-to-use tool for creating digital designs that are ready to be 3D printed into physical objects. Users are guided through the 3D design process through ‘Lessons’, which teach the basics before moving on to more complex modeling techniques.
Tinkercad was founded in by Kai Backman and Mikko Mononen in 2011, bringing the first browser-based 3D design platform to the masses. In June 2013 Tinkercad became part of Autodesk, joining the 123D family of products in helping students, makers, and individuals from all walks of life to design and make the things they imagine.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
