Custom colors in Tinkercad!

Hi everyone,

This is Guillermo again.

New week, new great feature coming directly from your feedback. We got several requests of being able to have more control on colors. This is why we added a Custom option when choosing colors. When clicking on Custom, you get a color picker along with a set of values. If you are not familiar with color pickers, RGB stand for Red, Green and Blue. Each of them range from 0 to 255. We also support HSB, standing for Hue, Saturation and Brightness. You don’t need to know these values if you simply drag the cursor on the color picker.

Finally, the # field shows the Hex value, which may come in handy in many cases.

Custom Color


Last but not least, we added an option called Multicolor. This preserves the colors when grouping. If you don’t want shapes with different colors to end up being the same color when grouping, this is what you need to do:

  1. Create the group. Colors will get merged.
  2. Select the group and click on Color
  3. Select Multicolor
  4. Done!

We hope you love this new feature. Please let us know what you think.

A huge thanks to Petr Broz for this great enhancement!


The Tinkercad team.



  1. Thanks, this is nice. Quite a while ago I requested a “transparent” color, which would make it easier to see what’s going on inside complex objects as they’re built. At the time, Shino suggested using the “hole” setting as a workaround. This is sometimes adequate but not as useful as a true transparent color would be I think.

  2. All my ojects such as spheres, boxes, letters etc. have the color black, so it is impossible to see any details. what can I do, that my objects will have their original colors?
