How did you find out about Tinkercad? I did a search for 3D modeling software that was free and easy to use. Tinkercad was one of the top search results.

What is your favorite feature in the Tinkercad editor? My favorite feature is the shape generator. It’s almost like using OpenSCAD, but having access to fast rendering in a web browser is a killer feature. The ability to copy and edit shape generator code from other users in the community is great.

Why are you a #TinkerStar? I’ve found that Tinkercad is great for rapid prototyping. I’ve used it to design and tweak switch enclosures and fan duct mounts for my 3D printer, and create original toys like a spinner that has two spinners inside it. I also use it as a tool to visualize large projects in three dimensions before I start construction.

What is your favorite model you have designed in Tinkercad? My favorite model is the Octopus Stand for my Illuminated Octopus project.

Anything else you would like us to know? I plan on continuing to use Tinkercad for art projects, 3D printing projects, and home improvement projects!

Thanks Garrett–Keep on tinkering!
