Publisher Comments:

Tinkercad is the perfect software solution for millions of people who want to start experimenting with today's exciting new 3D modeling and printing technologies: Makers, DIYers, and hobbyists of all ages. It's friendly, it's web-based, and it's free. You don't even need a 3D printer to get started. There's only one problem: Tinkercad's documentation. It's sparse — and often, it's way too technical for most newcomers.

 

That's where 3D Modeling and Printing with Tinkercad: Create and Print Your Own 3D Models comes in. Packed with bright, full-color photos, it brings 3D projects to life — and it explains everything you need to know in plain, simple English.

 

Author James F. Kelly is one of the world's leading experts in demystifying cutting-edge technology: he's already done it for everything from 3D printing hardware to robotics. Here, he starts slow, assuming absolutely no knowledge, and teaching through real-world examples to make sure you understand everything completely before you move on.

 

Step by step, you'll practice through hands-on activities that build your comfort with Tinkercad as you gradually master all the techniques you'll need. Kelly even offers projects specifically designed for parents and children to work on together.

 

As you build confidence, you'll gradually move towards more advanced projects which show off Tinkercad's full power. Along the way, you'll master standard CAD terminology, walk through building several models, and learn how to export them to a 3D printer or an online 3D printing service. Kelly concludes by introducing software alternatives you might want to explore now that you're an experienced 3D modeler.
