    Published on - March 22, 2018 by Tricia Taggart


    If you haven’t been in the Tinkercad Shapes panel recently, you’re going to want to launch your Editor …. STAT! We’re following up the recent Parts Maker launch with more big updates to Shapes, like a rebuild of some of our Basic Shape sets to make it easier to find what you’re looking for. On top of that, we’ve added 5 new part COLLECTIONS that are chock full of fun AND useful shapes that make quick, easy work of designing cool characters, skeletons, dinosaurs, electronics, and more. These features can be super helpful in generating ideas for your next school or home project, regardless of your level of expertise. The only limit is your imagination!

    Here’s a run-down of what’s now LIVE:


    Characters Part Collection: We took some of your favorite parts and added a slew of new props to deck out your next character build.

    Circuit Component Collection: Select from a variety of real-world electronic components to help you mock-up your next mechatronic masterpiece.

    Skeleton & Dinosaur Collections: Poseable, creepy creature kits designed specifically for easy 3D printing. Each of these use the same ball and socket designs found in the Connectors kit (more below), so you can mix-and-match parts to design and build your own creature menagerie!
