Description

TinkerCAD is the perfect software to learn the basics of 3D modeling. The software allows you to create 3D models that can then be sent to a 3D printer or CNC machine to be made. If you are interested in learning how to create your own models to print on your 3D printer then TinkerCAD is the best place to start. It is fairly simple to use, allows you to create a wide range of objects and best of all, the software is completely FREE!.


It is important that you learn to model correctly from the start if you want to become a proficient creator and TinkerCAD gives you a great grounding in this area. By learning to create objects from basic shapes you are forced to use your imagination to edit these shapes into the parts you require. This skill is an important part of modelling that will stay with you as you progress on to more complex software.


TinkerCAD is also great for kids to learn as its simple and colourful interface make it fun to learn and create. After taking this course you will be able to teach your children to model a wide variety of objects limited only by their imagination.


In this course, we not only teach you how to use the software but let you follow along as we model some items such as a sign for a bedroom door or workshop and a toy train.


The course also includes some quizzes to help you ensure you understand the basics of TinkerCAD before moving on.


3D printing is fast becoming one of the easiest ways to create your own objects at home. It's becoming more and more popular every day and the ability to create objects yourself rather than relying on finding objects created by others will become a more important skill in the future.


If you have a 3D printer or CNC and would like to learn to create your own models rather than just relying on downloading others then this course and TinkerCAD is the perfect place to start. Even if you don't have a 3D printer but would like to learn to use this totally free software then you will find this course enjoyable and informative. You can always send your models out to be printed.
