"Tinkercad"

What do you like best?

Lo mejor de tinkercad es que funciona sin realizar ninguna instalaci├│n en tu computadora, y todos tus proyectos quedan guardados en la nube, siendo posible hacerlos p├║blicos y accesibles con otros usuarios.

Tinkercad es un editor de gráficos 3d, con un panel de control muy completo e intuitivo, y aunque claramente esta orientado a un público juvenil y poco experto, con maña y experiencia se ven creaciones alucinantes en la comunidad de usuarios de Tinkercad.

Además un proyecto Tinkercad puede ser exportado como archivo para imprimir en impresora 3D de plástico con facilidad y rapidez.

Tinkercad requiere una cuenta de email para registrarse pero es gratuito.

What do you dislike?

Se echa en falta de que además de hacerse públicos, se pudiera trabajar de forma colaborativa en los diseños entre varios miembros de un grupo de trabajo.

Otro aspecto desfavorable es que aunque la ionterafz es muy intuitiva, no es fácil de hacerse a ella desde el principio, requiere de un tiempo para acostumbrarse, aunque en general, la curva de aprendizaje no es muy acusada, en una hora aproximadamente uno se hace al panel de herramientas de diseño. Con esto quiero decir que aunque los más pequeños pueden usarlo, hay que recalcar que necesitarán paciencia.

Como mencion├ę antes, Tinkercad se queda corto para alguien que busque una herramienta profesional de dise├▒o 3d. Por ello no tengo nada malo que decir acerca de Tinkercad.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Muy recomendable para que los más pequeños se animen en el modelado 3D e impresión en plástico de sus propias obras. Además gratis.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Se utiliza con los estudiantes más pequeños para que aprendan a diseñar sus propios proyectos y a imprimirlos posteriormente en una impresora 3d. Se han realizado muñecos, casitas y llaveros en plástico de múltiples formas y colores.

"Tinkercad y la impresi├│n 3D"

What do you like best?

Tinkercad tiene las siguientes ventajas:

- No hay que instalar nada, te registras y se usa en l├şnea con tu navegador preferido.

- Es gratis

-. Tiene una interfaz muy amigable, intuitiva, moderna y fácil de usar hasta por niños, que en poco tiempo te permitirán crear complejos modelos de figuras.

.- Fácil de exportar en archivo STL para poderlo usar con tu modelo de impresora 3d.

What do you dislike?

- Consume muchos recursos, si no tienes una computadora relativamente potente puede ir mu lento y bloquearse tu navegador al trabajar en el modelado de tus figuras o piezas.

- Requiere una conexi├│n a internet con gran ancho de banda, o tendremos problemas de rendimiento.

- Esta pensado para hacer figuras llamativas pero simples, si quieres realizar algo más complejo no te servirá.

- Incluye una biblioteca de formas básicas algo limitada que esperamos todos que con el tiempo se amplie.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si tienes una impresora y quieres crear tus primeros modelos de forma sencilla, divertida y sin invertir ni un dolar, reg├şstrate en la web de tinkercad y pru├ębalo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Nos ha permitido iniciarnos en la ense├▒anza y aprendizaje con alumnos adolescentes y les ha encantado.

Hemos hecho mu├▒ecos muy originales para vender.

Hemos hecho piezas de protecci├│n para patines y bicicletas.

Hemos hecho llaveros de plástico.

Y al ser el programa totalmente gratis, nos hemos divertido haci├ęndolas y no ha supuesto ninguna inversi├│n y s├ş ingresos con el peque├▒o mercado de piezas a medida generado.

"Great program to start learning 3D design"

What do you like best?

The interface is really easy to use allowing the user to do a huge range of posibilities without any effort. The program is quite simple, you just need a few days to get used to tinkercad. It provides STL files which can work with a 3D printing slicer program. The tutorial is really good to get started in tinkercad

What do you dislike?

In complicated design it is a bad program, you won't be able to use the program as you expect. Also the server sometimes doesn't work at all and this means that you won't be able to work until it gets fixed. More shapes could help the user to make more designs

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a free program, so i recommend you to try it at least. If you are doing complicated designs, maybe it is not the best option

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simple design related to basic thinks, allowing us to print them easily

"Tinkercad should be the first choice to whom start learning 3D design"

What do you like best?

Tinkercad is a fantastic tool to learn 3d design. You could create 3d models, Arduino projects and much more in Tinercad. Tinkercad is a free platform for all aspects of learners of 3d. There is a teacher module in Tinkercad. From there, you could establish classes, invite students. Electronics and coding sections aim to STEM education. You could design lithophanes, business cards, nameplates, Minecraft objects, lego parts etc. without any hustle with this evolving tool.

What do you dislike?

You could design relatively low poly objects in Tinkercad. The designed object's total surface triangles can't exceed allowance value. The same thing applies when importing files to the system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend for everybody who wants to start learning 3d design. Tinkercad is a kind of jewellery for the education system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for designing simple 3d parts. Tinkercad is very useful and handy, in the case of designing simple shaped objects.

"Middle School STEM"

What do you like best?

Tinkercad is very easy to use for my middle school students. Since they are just beginning CAD, this is a perfect product for them to get used to how CAD works. The tutorial is especially helpful for my students.

What do you dislike?

There are some limitations as to what my students can create. Since this program uses geometric shapes, it can be difficult for the students to get too creative as they cannot draw what they want to make. They have to figure out how to make it using the provided shapes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As an educator, the main problem I am solving is how to get my students to think more like engineers and designers. By utilizing this software, I am able to much more efficiently teach how CAD software is used outside of education.

"Great software for learning CAD"

What do you like best?

Tinkercad is a simple, easy to use and easy to understand design software that is easy enough to understand that anyone can use it and understand the basics of CAD. One of the best features about it as well is the ability to switch between orthographic and isometric viewing easily to get a better idea of what you are doing.

What do you dislike?

Since it is a simplified CAD program, it is much more difficult to make complex shapes on there than on something like Inventor or Solidworks. Molding functions, screws, and 2-D planes are not included, so it is not ideal for custom shapes and designs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

From an educator point of view, it is an easy way to teach others the basics of CAD, and getting others to start creating designs with it. For students who have never touched a design software before, it is a great introductory step.

"Una buena herramienta para comenzar en el mundo del dise├▒o 3D"

What do you like best?

Es un entorno muy sencillo de utilizar y con dise├▒os y colores muy vivos, lo que favorece su uso en edades tempranas como recurso did├íctico. Adem├ís, es una aplicaci├│n web, con lo que no es necesario instalar software en el ordenador. Tambi├ęn permite de manera muy sencilla exportar los dise├▒os para ser impresos en impresora 3D.

What do you dislike?

Aunque es un problema menor para el uso que le doy, al final está bastante limitado respecto a otros editores 3D más avanzados.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Primer contacto de ni├▒os y ni├▒as de Primaria con un entorno de dise├▒o 3D.

"TinkerCAD the easy AutoCAD"

What do you like best?

ThinkerCAD is the easy AutoCAD. Sometimes you want to design something simple and you do not want to use the AutoCAD for this. AutoCAD is very complicated, you have to wait for hours to install it, and to learn it is very difficult.

With ThinkerCAD all this is easy. You can design an object that you want in no time. When you start with ThinkerCAD you have some lessons to learn to design the simplest objects. In 15 minutes you learn everything that one needs to start. For example with ThinkerCAD you can design in 5 minutes a pretty complicated shape, and in 1-2 hours an entire car. With AutoCAD this would have taken hours and hours of work.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that when you try to design certain parts, it is very difficult to follow the dimensions. ThinkerCAD is easy AutoCAD and because of this some of its features are not very precise. This is the worst part of ThinkerCAD, it is not very precise, although it is fast and easy to learn. In a way is like a having a bycicle instead of a car.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend ThinkerCAD to all people. ThinkerCAD is very easy to learn. If you have something simple to do, use ThinkerCAD instead of AutoCAD, it is easier and faster.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was participating in some design contests at Desall. I never won something with my ThinkerCad drawings but I gained sufficient experience to tell you about ThinkerCAD.

"TinkerCAD is as entry-level as it gets CAD software"

What do you like best?

It's all in the browser. TinkerCAD is a very simple to use CAD software, and provides downloadable STL files suitable for a 3D printing slicer software. TinkerCAD on the web + Cura on your local machine is a great path to 3d printing for beginners. The interface is very straightforward, and the tutorials are just enough to get you going.

What do you dislike?

TinkerCAD does things its own, simple way, that doesn't translate to other more advanced CAD packages for me. That is, it is a great tool for beginners, but it is not a suitable first step towards AutoCAD or SolidWorks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's free, just try it - start with the first demo video to get the basics, then try your own designs. I would say if you intend to eventually move to a more traditional CAD package, then you might try OnShape instead - the learning curve looks steeper but I think the skills will translate better.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

TinkerCAD was by far the easiest way to get going with 3D printing. I designed a few cool models in it very quickly, and would use it again if I needed to do some more design.

"Does what it ought, a good intro"

What do you like best?

Easy to understand the UI, very simple and useful for teaching beginners the basics of 3d modeling.

What do you dislike?

somewhat limited in terms of what you can do. some functions are not as intuitive as they are in sketchup. it can be difficult to locate certain shapes/functions and there is not always a good way to create the shape you would like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out, if you enjoy it, consider switching to Sketchup after you have the basics down.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we're designing 3d models to print out using our 3d printer. kids like bringing their designs to life.

"Great for students learning 3D Design"

What do you like best?

Tinkercad is a great drag and drop program that allows my students to learn the introduction to 3D design. I enjoy being able to monitor their accounts and jump on their projects from my end of the software as their teacher.

What do you dislike?

I wish the shapes were more adjustable like shapes are on programs such as Photoshop or Pixelmator.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tinkercad is great for the elementary student for 3D Design. After using this program, they will move onto SketchUp in the middle school. The drag and drop features make it very kid friendly.

"Great for an online tool, but held a few bugs and difficulties. "

What do you like best?

The simple to use, online interface allowed me to construct a 3d model without having ever used a 3d modeling software before.

What do you dislike?

As simple as the tool was, it caused for some difficulties. I found it hard to align some edges of certain forms absolutely perfectly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking to get pixel perfect work, I would not recommend, but if you're looking to quickly whip out a basic prototype idea, this is a great web application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am attempting to use this software as a simple and quick of building 3d models in order 3d print custom parts.

"3D Modeling "Pocketknife""

What do you like best?

1. Online, you have it with you when you need it, to fix something quickly.

2. very very easy to learn and use!!

3. you can group and ungroup objects so it's not destructible like other software.

What do you dislike?

sometimes the connection is not so good, especially when you teach it in a class with many computers. some of the operation is so complex so the software freeze and can't make what you want so it's not so good for very complex designs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

you can continue to use your big software, but it's nice to have this "Pocketknife" around....
