Mind to design in minutes

With Tinkercad you can quickly turn your idea into a CAD model for a 3D printer.

Learn to use Tinkercad
in three easy steps

1Place

Shapes are the basic building block of Tinkercad, a shape can add or remove material. You can work with pre-existing shapes or import your own."

2Adjust

Shapes can be moved, rotated and adjusted freely in space. Use tools like the ruler to input exact dimensions.

3Combine

A custom shape is created by grouping together a set of shapes. By building more intricate shapes you can step by step create very detailed models.

Your idea in 3D

Designing physical models for either manufacturing or visualization requires solid modeling. All operations in Tinkercad generate proper solids.

Tinkercad users

Thankfully, I discovered Tinkercad – not only was it extremely easy to learn, it allowed me to start building the things I imagined in my head in no time.  Read more...

I didn’t foresee being able to deal with the 3D programs and we were looking for someone to make 3D pieces for us, but then I found Tinkercad.  Read more...

Features & Benefits

Solid modelling

Designing physical models either for manufacturing or visualization requires solid modeling. All operations in Tinkercad are guaranteed to generate proper solids.

Cloud storage

The 3D designs created with Tinkercad are stored in the cloud for easy access from anywhere. We always use SSL encryption (same as online banks).

Laser Cutting

The SVG export in Tinkercad is specifically tailored for laser cutters. The standard workplane will cut a slice through your model which can then be laser cutted.

Shapes

Shapes are the basic building block of Tinkercad. Any shape can add or remove material and in addition to pre-existing shapes you can also import your own.

Share models

As Tinkercad is a web app you can easily share your models just by copying the link. Tinkercad also lets you fork someone elses model and develop it further.

Import 2D

With 2D import you can create vector shapes in your favorite vector editing tool and import them into Tinkercad and extrude them into solids. Great for adding logos or images.

Grouping

By grouping together a set of shapes you can create a new shape to work with. By building more and more intricate shapes you can create extremely detailed models.

3D printing

Tinkercad supports all 3D printers on the market that accept the industry standard STL file format. You can also download VRML files for color printing.

Import 3D

Tinkercad features revolutionary 3D import that lets you turn an external file into a editable Tinkercad shape. There is a growing number of supported formats.

Web based

Tinkercad runs in any web browser that supports HTML5/WebGL be it on Windows, Mac or Linux. Suggested browsers are Google Chrome and Mozille FireFox.

3D printing services

With direct integration with 3rd party printing services you can print a design from Tinkercad with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Fast

The Gen6 geometry kernel that performs all your editing operations runs in a large computing cluster with dozens of machines. This means everything is very fast in Tinkercad.

Export

There is a growing number of export formats to let you take your Tinkercad design and work on it further with some external package or device.

Resolution

The Gen6 geometry kernel supports a modeling objects the size of a car with a maximum resolution of 1µm. The editor constrains this to slightly smaller objects.
