3D Modelling with Tinkercad

We’ll start with one of the quickest programs to get started with and the easiest to learn. These files can even be downloaded and printed out with a 3D printer.

It’s called Tinkercad, and it’s all online and it’s totally free! You’ll have to create an Autodesk account, if you don’t have one already, in order to get started.

There are some easy tutorials to get you started. Please access those here.

Once you’ve got the hang of the basic controls, I recommend taking a bit of a video course so that some things can be explained to you. The course accessible at this link is pretty interesting and informative, but the keychain is a piece of junk! Well, it’s not too bad, but the loop that attaches it to your keychain is too small, and it’s kind of weak so it’ll break off (trust me.) Can you improve on the design to make one that won’t break and will fit better?

Eventually, you will make your own model to hand in for marks.

Tell Mr. Robson what's on your mind!
