Tinkercad Aggregated Reviews
If you’re a complete beginner doing simple things Tinkercad works as well.
I love Tinkercad, and these files are really well done. Nice work.
*quickly downloads the files for his own use*
There is Tinkercad, a website that will let you work with 3D files, which, being a website will work with Chromebooks.
Tinkercad is the way to go. I’ve been able to model quite complex functional parts with it. Get yourself a cheap pair of calipers too
The easiest to learn is tinkercad I think. It’s just drag and drop shapes, but it is ridiculous to actually make something in tinkercad. For actually making things, onshape is probably the easiest to get into. It’s very simple, yet very similar to industry software, and there’s no download. It just a website. I’ve used many cad packages but I prefer onshape for simple things because it is so much faster and is pretty easy
hold my beer, gonna make a sketch too on tinkercad
Did some tinkercad a few years ago, wow I could never make something as nice as this.
They’ve both got their purposes. Sketchup is better for stuff like architecture and visualizations, while Tinkercad is better for stuff like modeling (I find solid based modeling a bit easier, and Tinkercad undoubtedly wins there). Sketchup is also trash for modeling for 3D printing as everything it exports tends to be horrendously broken, which is kinda unfortunate since I do like Sketchup a lot.
I used tinkercad a lot! But according to some people say sketchup is better, but I can’t build anything lmao
Tinkercad is the easiest if you want thing that a certain dimensions.
I’d suggest you start with Tinkercad, it’s aimed at people like you. You use basic shapes (cube, sphere etc) to create a new object. Lots of tutorials on YouTube.
Start with something simple like a phone stand, drawer handle, soap holder and so on. Your first goal is to learn how to think about 3D modeling, not to create something complicated.
The best way to start is by looking around your home and trying to find something simple to fix or improve with a 3D printed part. You’ll soon start to get a feel for what’s possible or not and how hard (or easy) it is to model something.
Tinkercad. Is simple.
TinkerCAD’s problem is that it is very limited, and almost nothing you learn from using it will translate to any other CAD program out there. You would be better off spending an hour watching some tutorials for the other programs suggested and starting there. Even if the interface and features aren’t identical among my suggested CAD programs, the concepts are typically the same.
Changelog – pre-ecosystem era
v0.1.8 Hound @ apps.the.gt – b2b prospecting platform
v0.1.8.1 Business directory – content experiment to support b2b prospecting platform.
v0.1.6 GRIN tech affiliate program is live.
v0.1.5.3 GRIN jobs experiment started
v0.1.5.2 Working on cool in-house lead gen project - Art Director is preparing 100 picks of Business Cards in various niches.
v0.1.5.1 GRIN games emerged
As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
v0.1.3 Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
We love Wordpress and recently shipped two plugins into open beta for commercial sale.
v0.1.2.2 King The Monk - wordpress plugin to virally grow your email list
v0.1.2.1 Plain Conversions - wordpress plugin to convert your visitors
v0.1.1. Expanded core offering to visual productions
v0.1 It's Autumn 2017 and GRIN tech agency's website is born.
We have it saved for the history.
