Learn 3D modeling in Tinkercad, the free online app for anyone who wants to get started in 3D design and CAD.
- [Instructor] Hi, I'm Kacie Hultgren and welcome to Learning Tinkercad. Tinkercad is a free online application that anyone can use to create 3D models. It's a great choice if you want to design objects for 3D printing, or learn CAD basics. We'll learn to navigate in 3D, create and modify shapes, as well as use the workplane and ruler to design more accurately. We'll also explore ways to incorporate outside assets, like SVG and STL files. This course is meant for beginners.
You don't need any previous experience with 3D CAD design to get started with this course. But this course is also great for Tinkercad users who want to take their skills to the next level. Jam-packed with keyboard shortcuts and pro tips, this course will help you utilize every facet of this simple, yet powerful program. Let's dive in.
