    Inspiration, Tinkerstars

    Flowalistik 21 [3D_A] 015 final

    Agustín Arroyo is a designer, a professor at Madrid's Universidad Francisco de Vitoria, and a content developer for Wikifactory. We asked him to share one of his earliest designs and catch us up on what he's up to now.

    How It Started

    This simple character called Filla Fella design was originally designed in Fusion 360 as a canvas for my students to learn Tinkercad and collaborative design basics. As an instructor, I always try to find inspiring ideas or designs for my students to learn while putting their creative skills into practice.

    Designing their own character is definitely one of my favorite learning experiences, and it allows my student to learn about 3D modeling and 3D printing in just one afternoon. As you can see in the image, they're given the basic shape, and then they play with the different features to create their own version.

    How It's Going

    The last project I've worked on is the Kasukabe House. This architectural model was designed in Fusion 360, and it's the project I show in my 3D Printing and Design for Architecture Models online course at Domestika. I teach step by step how to design it and how to make the best possible 3D printed architectural models.

    The geometric shapes of this design allow anyone, even Tinkercad users, to replicate it at home. It's really inspiring to see simple shapes come together to create a complex structure. I love this type of projects as their educational value is really high, but without sacrificing aesthetics or functionality.

    Why do you think Tinkercad is still going strong after 10 years?

    Because no matter how experienced you are with 3D modeling software, Tinkercad will always be one of the fastest and most accessible ways to design and prototype.
