    NEW FEATURE: PHOTO UPLOAD. A new feature released this week included the ability to upload a photo to your Thing. Take a look at an example of upload by Tinkerer MakeALot and the "Striped 73 Knot."

    Tinkerer Morena has discovered another clever way, via screen shots, to use photo upload. For more detailed instructions on how it works read on

    #CHESS CHALLENGE WINNER. Between the MakerBot and Tinkercad designers, we had to chose a winner for the #Chess Challenge's grand prize: a MakerBot Replicator. GIANT shout-out to Joseph Larson for his winning design. Read more about it here. A follow-up post is in order (next week) as we want to show all of the other insanely awesome entries.

    EASTER BUNNY GIVEAWAY. We had a bit of fun with an Easter Giveaway last week. The winner of bunny cuteness was @desundial who stopped by the Tinkercad Helsinki office and got a wee bit of a tour, too. Congrats, Diana!

    SONOMA COUNTY KIDS MINI MAKER FAIRE. What a trip! We had a great time hanging in Santa Rosa at the Sonoma Country Day School teaching kids (and some parents) about Tinkercad and 3D design. There were several kids who were laser-focused on completing their Quests and designing their Things. Check out more photos from the event.

    UPCOMING COMPETITION? Tinkercad peeps are already inquiring. Preparations are beginning for Facebook fun around...Quests. Stalk our page to keep in the know about what's next!

    Tinkercad on Pinterest!

    FLICKR TIME. Yup. We finally opened up an account. And nope, we haven't uploaded a lot of photos, yet, but we'd love to see yours!

    EXCEPTIONAL TINKER. Is there a design on Tinkercad that you love? Not just like, but LOVE? Or perhaps there's a Tinkerer who has made exceptional progress with their designs. We're always looking to recognize Things and their Tinkerers, so pass them on to us:

    Have a great weekend!
