TinkerCad is a web based program for creating 3d files.

I haven’t used TinkerCad yet but I’ve heard a lot of good things about it. Most everyone coming in to use the 3d printer have built their files in Google Sketch up. We’ve had some good results but Sketch up can leave some parts with open vertices, which the 3d printer doesn’t know what to do with. So I wanted to throw out TinkerCad as an alternative. I plan on playing with it as soon as I get the chance.
