Solving Xbox One Problems with Tinkercad and 3D Printing

Tinkercad user ProwlingTiger found himself facing a problem recently: he had an Xbox One Kinect, but no way to keep his new device stable, because TV mounts were sold out everywhere due to the rush of people buying the new console. Instead of going online and spending $20 + shipping then waiting days for a hard-to-find item to arrive, ProwlingTiger made his way to Tinkercad and created what he needed instead.

Knowing other people might be having the same issue with finding a suitable mount, he shared the link to his 3D model, made for printing on a Makerbot, with Reddit, where he was quickly inundated with requests to purchase his creation. This led to him opening up an Etsy store so anyone without access to a 3D printer could buy the mount he created.

It’s awesome seeing what creative folks do when faced with a problem, as well as to see how quickly other people can benefit from it. Fortunately it doesn’t take lots of engineering degrees or extensive training to get to this point – as we can see below, anyone with a desire to make things will find a way to do so:

This is a great example of how 3D printing technology can make our lives a lot simpler. We look forward to seeing what ProwlingTiger and all of our other Tinkercad and 123D users will show us next.
