                             TINKERCAD 

     

              TINKERCAD IS AN ONLINE COLLECTION OF SOFTWARE TOOLS THAT ENABLE
              COMPLETE BEGINNERS TO CREATE 3D MODELS. THIS CAD SOFTWARE IS BASED
              ON CONSTRUCTIVE SOLID GEOMETRY (CSG), WHICH ALLOWS USERS TO CREATE
              COMPLEX MODELS BY COMBINING SIMPLER OBJECTS TOGETHER. AS A RESULT,
              THIS 3D MODELING SOFTWARE IS USER-FRIENDLY AND CURRENTLY ENJOYED BY
              MANY, PARTICULARLY TEACHERS, KIDS, HOBBYISTS, AND DESIGNERS. THE
              SOFTWARE ALLOWS USERS TO CREATE MODELS THAT ARE COMPATIBLE WITH
              3D PRINTING. A GREAT OPTION FOR BEGINNERS TO THE TECHNOLOGY.
