An excellent simplified 3D software modeling for beginners or students who are interested in 3D model.

It's a great tool for teachers to use in some creative classes related to computers. Kids or students will be very interested in it while studying using computers.

I like Tinkercad enables a student to be as creative as possible. Once the student goes on their own to discover the possibilities, there is so much that can be done.

I think that Tinkercad enables creativity. Creativity is a craft that is overlooked far too much today and this brings that presence back. I like how the visual field has a 360 view which really can capture everything.

Great tool for those who are just getting into CAD

Overall it is a great tool for hands on learners. On the downside, if someone is used to the classic way of learning where the teacher is giving instructions , there does not seem to be any videos or visual instructions. It mainly seems like a hands on learning experience. It seems like it would be most useful if instructions were given in the traditional sense and then time was also given for students to play around with the website for hands on learning.

Great software for Design and Art classes

If you are designing something for class this is the most intuitive software to use. It is easy to learn for younger students but able to be used for more complex design jobs as well. I use this software for anyone between grades 6 and Year 12 Diploma classes and it is easily adaptable between all levels. I especially like that it is a desktop online tool so students can create a free account and not lose there work.

Powerful, easy, and free web based CAD software which allows students of different ages to learn about CAD and engineering

I LOVE this app. I use it often with my students to explore the Engineering Design Process. This can be a resource intensive application, and can slow down older devices, and use up bandwidth. Additionally, if a student creates a very intricate design in Tinkercad, it can take a VERY long time to load, and in the case of my Chromebooks, it can even crash Chrome.
