    Teachers & Parents, Inspiration


    : My name is Josh Ajima. I am a teacher. I believe that I can MAKE a difference.

    Tinkercad User Name: DesignMakeTeach

    How Did You Find Out About Tinkercad?: Web search, way back in the day when there was only 1 free design.

    What is Your Favorite Feature in the Editor?: My favorite feature is the ability to import & export SVG files, this gives a common workflow with 3D printer, laser cutter and vinyl cutter.

    Why are you a TinkerStar?: I regularly create and publish models for others to use and remix. Tinkercad is my primary 3D design tool and I've used it to create models that have been featured on Thingiverse and Youmagine. I also teach Tinkercad to students and teachers in my school and summer STEM camp. I frequently post designs and 3D prints created in Tinkercad on Twitter @DesignMakeTeach. In 2012, I helped plan a TEDx event. My TEDx wish was for a 3D printer for my school. When that wish didn’t magically come true, I decided to MAKE it happen and bought a 3D printer out of personal funds. I now DESIGN, MAKE and SHARE lessons on MAKING in the classroom.

    What is your favorite model you have designed in Tinkercad?: Chesapeake Bay Watershed Contour Map

    One last thing: Josh has an amazing blog that you should all check out!

    Congrats Josh and wear your hoodie with pride!
