The gap between house hold 3d printers and advanced 3d software is a huge one. Tinkercard fills the gap in the 3D printing industry of accessible, cheap and easy to use 3D modelling software. Based in San Francisco, CA., Tinkercad has recently rasied over 1 million dollars in vc funding to help boost their wonderful product and hire more staff to continue developing the software.
“Thus, the story begins of how Kai Backman and Mikko Mononen founded Tinkercad bringing the first browser-based 3D design platform to the masses. Based in San Francisco, CA, Tinkercad is an easy-to-use and powerful 3D CAD tool enabling design of physical products ready for 3D printing. Users are guided through the 3D design process through ‘Lessons’, which teach the basics before moving on to more complex modeling techniques.”
