TinkerStar: Joao Duarte

ddddNameJoao Duarte

How Did You Find Out About Tinkercad?:  Actually I was studying my options for designing 3D objects for 3D printing. But since I needed to create something really fast and I didn’t have any 3D design knowledge, a flowchart lead me to Tinkercad.

What is Your Favorite Feature in the Editor?: I have to say the align feature. It comes in really handy sometimes, for example when I want to center two pieces on each other. It is awesome!

Why are you a TinkerStar?:  I think I am a TinkerStar because I’ve made some awesome projects with it. Ever since I started using it, I never stopped using it! Always developing something new, a more complex more interesting project. Not only what I’ve done, but I’ve made my friends addicted as well. Now they are Tinkercad fans also! Besides I made a good advertisement for Tinkercad, since one of my projects was featured in many  websites. Check out more of João’s projects here!

joaoduarteWhat is your favorite model you have designed in Tinkercad?: My favorite and most successful model so far is my DNA Lamp. I made it for the Instructables 3D Printing contest, and it was a huge success, having more than 30 000 views on there!

Also is worth mentioning that since the project was so successful, it was featured in publications like: 3dprint.com3ders.orgHackaday and Adafruit.
