3D Design Software – Tinkercad Browser-based 3D design platform #3DThursday #3DPrinting

This week, I am sharing about 3D design software that I recommend for those who want to get started with design and modeling for 3D printing.

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.

A few of my favorite features are these:

  • Solid modeling — always produces a model that can be printed.
  • Web based with cloud storage — you can pick up on your work easily on another system.
  • Share your models, or even fork a version to remix and rethink to produce a new model.
  • Import 2D and 3D shapes.
  • Rulers and snapping make it easy to build to precise measurements.
  • Use a workplace to export a SVG slice so that you can laser cut a cross-section.

But probably my favorite feature at the in-editor “quests” that teach you all of Tinkercad’s tools quickly and efficiently. Here is handy Getting Started in Tinkercad resource as well.

More details online here: Tinkercad Browser-based based 3D solid design platform:

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.
