Get to know the basics

Welcome to the world of design!
Design is the art of discovering all the things that haven’t been made yet. It is equal parts learning and teaching, breaking and making, seeing and showing.
Design is sharing!
Tinkercad is an amazingly powerful easy-to-use tool for creating digital designs that are ready to be 3D printed into super-cool physical objects. You will be guided through the 3D design process via easy hands-on “Lessons”, that teach you the basics of Tinkercad before moving on to more complex modeling techniques.
