    Are you ready to design your dream skateboard? In this guide by Mike Warren on Instructables you'll learn how to create a custom-shaped skateboard design in Tinkercad. If you have access to a 3D printer, Mike's snap-on wheel design allows you to turn your creation in to a fingerboard that you can print and play with.

    So what are you waiting for? You can dive into Tinkercad and follow Mike's step-by-step instructions. Or, copy and tinker Mike's existing design and add your own graphics, maybe create someone (or something) to ride on it, or create multiple designs for different styles of skateboarding (street, ramp, freestyle, off-road, longboard).


    Still want to take it further? Why not try designing a skatepark full or ramps, bowls, or whatever terrain you can imagine. 

    Keep an eye on the Tinkercad blog and our social media channels (Twitter, Facebook) for more step-by-step guides, design challenges and other inspiration.
