Tinkercad is coming to Boise and they are bringing their expertise with them! On July 25th librarians, educators, makers, and eager learners are invited to attend a day of free workshops and interactive experiences centered around 3D design. Tinkercad is a simple, online 3D design and 3d printing tool for the masses. Whether you’re a designer, hobbyist, teacher, or kid, you can use Tinkercad to make toys, prototypes, home decor, Minecraft models, jewelry – the list is truly endless!
If you are experienced with Tinkercad or brand new to 3D design, the day will offer something for you. Hosted at the Boise Centre on the Grove, workshop sessions will include intro to Tinkercad, Tinkercrafting (Tinkercad + Minecraft), Tinkercad 2.0, and Fusion 360. In addition, local organizations are invited to host a table with interactive opportunities to display what maker projects they are working on.
Whether you can make it to the training or not, please share what you are designing with the hashtag #IDdesignday
