How did you find out about Tinkercad? At a local maker space — we used it for Computer Aided Design (CAD).

What is your favorite feature in the Tinkercad editor? The hole feature.

Why are you a #TinkerStar? I am a TinkerStar because I spend all my free time designing and printing. Sometimes I spend days (weeks for the one I sent you that I am still working on) putting in an immense amount of detail in my designs, detail down to .25 mm. I am mostly self-taught and have spent 2 years honing my skills, and I have taught a number of my friends how to 3D design. In addition, some of the people who work at my local maker space told me that I am qualified enough to teach the 3D printing classes (although I am  too young – I am only 11). This year my school got a 3D printer and I taught one of my teachers how to use Tinkercad. Lastly, my first CAD choice is always Tinkercad.

What is your favorite model you have designed in Tinkercad? t725

Anything else you would like us to know? I am eleven years old. I am in love with 3D printing. Also, I have won a maker merit award and a best in class and an editors choice from make. Plus, I have been interviewed by my local maker space.

I am not finished with my design.

Thanks Jacob! Keep on tinkering!
