Tinkercad is an impressive browser based 3D printing modeling tool that has brought happiness and joy to many creative minds. Its intuitive interface and its powerful tools have made it possible for countless 3D print hungry individuals to bring their creations to life.  Today they have just made that experience a whole lot better.

With a major new version on their website, designers around the world can now create better 3D prints with an even better interface and, with much more ease. The new release looks stunning and feels just the way you’d want it to feel.

The new and improved Tinkercad

Considering I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Beta version of this new release, I spent some of my time having a look at it. My first reaction was “Wow! The new version looks smooth.” It was like opening Google SketchUp for the first time, it just felt right. With the short amount of time that I had at my disposal, I managed to create the following items without too much hassle. And  I am not a Tinkercad specialist. It was thanks to the intuitive interface that this could come to life within about 10 minutes

Made in Tinkercad in about 5 minutes

Another 5 minutes and I had this in my screen

Another great addition to this new release are the Quests. They are so useful! Whenever I needed to create a specific shape or I needed some guidance, these built in tutorials led the way.

With this new release, Tinkercad raises web based 3D modeling to an unmatched level. It’s really impressive and most importantly, fun to use. It kept me interested and I still am which is exactly what you want from such a software package. One thing I still haven’t found was a sharing button somewhere, but like I said… my time was limited. So it might actually be there and I missed it. But after all, let’s not forget that I was using a Beta version. I look forward to spend some more time on this newly improved Tinkercad in the future. Hopefully I’ll get to upload some of my work in our gallery as it has a very useful integrated button to i.materialise.

Add complexity to your designs

So what are you waiting for? Go out there and try it yourself! And if you like what you designed and need a 3D print done, just click on the print 3D button, choose i.materialise and we’ll do the rest!
