    Tips & Tricks, Features

    Last week we had some updates to the Tinkercad Beta editor that should come in pretty handy.

    screen-shot-2016-11-28-at-5-01-21-pm1. Favorites are back.
    We added the ability to select shapes that you use most often and add them to a Favorites category.

    2. Shape Generator Tab.
    Create and edit your custom Shape Generator with code, now in the Beta environment as its own tab.  Just look up by the TinkerCrafting pickaxe at the top right of the editor.

    3. The Text Shape now supports many languages.
    We've added Chinese, Japanese, Korean, German, French and Spanish characters, to name a few.

    4. Disconnected Status.
    Now if you lose your connection to Tinkercad for whatever reason, you'll get a notification so as not to lose work.

    Improved SVG import of curve accuracy.
    Increased max sides of cylinder, cone, and and pyramid to 64 sides.
    Improvements to Tinkercad Beta lessons.
    Improved memory performance and various bug fixes.

    Give the new features a go and let us know what you think!
