Using Tinkercad

This is a general overview of Tinkercad.

Tinkercad is a free web-based 3D modeling tool found at https://www.tinkercad.com/. One of the great things with Tinkercad is that you don’t need to download software, it works right in your browser! All you need to do is set up an account and jump in.

Using Tinkercad is much easier than most 3D modeling software out there. It may seem a little too simple at first, but once you learn how to stack, duplicate, combine, and cut forms into different shapes, you’ll find that the possibilities are limitless.
