Tinkercad Updates Their Browser Based 3D Modeler for 3D Printing

Posted by in What's Hot 1 Reply

Tinkercad have made some advances in their quest to make 3D printing easy with their latest release of their browser based 3D modeling software.

The latest iteration of the free software includes more complex base geometry, letters, numbers and symbols to make it easier to personalize and 3D print a design.

The most useful aspect in my opinion is the ability to basically ‘drag and drop’ geometry to assemble a form as shown in the series of ‘quests‘ used to teach people how to get started with Tinkercad.  This would be even more powerful if one could import an STL like in Meshmixer to modify more complex forms such as an iPhone case or mouse housing.

A beneficial aspect of a browser based modeling program is that Tinkercad can continuously update and improve the software without the need for users to download updates. So along with these major changes to the interface and functionality, Tinkercad can continuously improve the user experience.

    I was hoping to do some designing on my, er, …. lunch break … at work but the darn firewall won’t let me!
