What is Tinkercad? What is it used for?


Get Top-Notch 3D Designs 

3D designing has always been a hard nut to crack. From gaining basic skills to flourishing as an expert in the business, you need an app that has an interactive and useful interface. This matters a lot if you’re a beginner, as you will need to be guided in your learning journey. You should consider Tinkercad to aid you as you move up the design proficiency ladder.

If you have young people who want to start a career in design, Tinkercad is always an effective solution. It’s the go-to app for educational purposes, as many teachers in colleges use it for instructional purposes.

Tinkercad is the best design app with which to begin 3D design. Chances are that even as an expert, you may find yourself using it to simplify your design.  Not just that, your attention to simple details can be enhanced by Tinkercad. Keep in mind that it is not a full-on design option.  It rather contains educational and instructional materials for teachers who are in the STEM field.

Tinkercard's Features:

Some of the features Tinkercad possess are:

  • Multiple modules
  • Coding classroom
  • Minecraft
  • Lego bricks

Tinkercad is very important for 3D activity, especially printing. Design export in STL file format is a service accessible on Tinkercad. You could also export in OBJ format, which is used mostly by 3D printers. Basic designs are underrated, but with Tinkercad, you could get the most out of simple designs. 

As an app that was designed with newbies in mind, Tinkercad has no animating or sculpting tools. If you’re looking for something a bit advanced, you should consider trying other software. One of Tinkercad’s strongest points is the fact that its compatibility with most 3D printers. You will find that most advanced apps still encounter difficulties with 3D printing. 

It is important to note that one of the qualities the developers of the app find important is ease of use. This is still the reason why most advanced designers still make use of Tinkercad. Its compatibility qualities are unrivaled and unmatched, while other advanced 3D apps are quite complex and complicated. This puts some pressure on designers who use those apps.

If by any chance you need a simple 3D printout from your printer, you should make a design on Tinkercad. Again, its ease of use can never be overstated. You could also use it as your 3D file repair tool if you want. All you need to do is upload the file to Tinkercad and then download it. The fact that your file has been rendered in Tinkercad format automatically affects repairs. 

One of the qualities that Tinkercad has which is not exactly beneficial is the fact that it is dependent on an internet connection. This means that once the internet connection goes off, then the app stops working. Here are some pros and cons;

Advantages of using Tinkercard:

  • Tinkercad is very easy to use
  • It is compatible with 3D printing, and it gives you dependable 3D files needed for 3D printing.
  • Tinkercad is fun to use. You will discover that a lot of 3D models are created by private designing communities. You could take advantage of the opportunity to share your designs or even work with people on design projects.
  • It is a proper tool for teachers in STEM fields


  • Tinkercad is an online tool. If the internet is off then Tinkercad stops.
  • Tinkercad is mostly for beginners and students of 3d design. Its capabilities have a limit. Besides Tinkercad touch screen device capabilities are also limited.
  • Rendering options are very limited, nearly none. There is no lighting feature. You could only give plain colors to your models.
