Have you been checking out the new Tinkercad Beta?

Recommended Posts

Pioneer Brian Wetzel just shared an article today about this week's major Tinkercad Beta launch -- Tinkercad Beta: Great Strides But Still Some Tinkering To Do.

This piece has some praise for the new launch, emphasizing how essential this tool has become for educators in the 3D space, as well as some tough constructive criticism for the collaboration model.

From his wrap up:

 

Overall, I think this is great progress for Tinkercad. Autodesk has managed to make a sleeker and more user-friendly design. It seems to load and run faster, and makes common tasks easier to complete. Real-time collaboration obviously gets a major thumbs up. However, it is still in beta form, and many of these great additions still need major tweaks; users should expect some hiccups while experimenting with the beta version. I am excited to see how Tinkercad is changing and can’t wait to see how we will be able to tinker with our models in the future.

 

 

  • What are your experiences with the beta?
  • How many educators here are considering making the leap to using this beta in their classrooms this season, vs waiting?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
