Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video Learning the interface, part of Learning Tinkercad.
- [Instructor] Let's take a tour…of the Tinkercad interface.…The interface is broken up into a few parts.…At the top, we have this header…with several icons.…The Tinkercad icon in the corner…will take you back to your dashboard.…This box with the bullets is a list of your designs.…You can click the X to leave that box.…And then we have an auto-generated file name.…You can click on it,…click delete, and type in your own title.…Click enter.…On the toolbar below, we have a variety of tools,…copy, paste, duplicate, delete.…
Now you'll notice on these that we have some shortcuts,…and it says control-D.…If you're working on a Mac, you can do command-D instead.…Then we have undo and redo.…Over to the right we have our modify tools,…show all, group, ungroup, align and flip,…and then some tools for importing, exporting,…or sharing your files.…On the right hand side over here is our shapes panel.…You can always collapse this panel to make more room…by clicking the arrow here on the side.…
At the top, you're going to find the workplane…
