April Ideas



Last month Tinkercad announced that they were shutting down their application. This was not great news for educators of younger students. But there are alternatives out there.
  • Effective 3/26/13 TinkerCad closed sign-ups for new users

  • April 30 2013 - All free accounts will be changed to read only

  • August 31 2013 - All academic accounts will be changed to read only

  • December 31 2013 - All paid accounts will be changed to read only

  • June 31 2014 - Read only access for all users will be discontinued



This month we'll explore those alternatives so that students can continue to use their MakerBot Desktop 3D Printers to engage in the technical, conceptual, and aesthetic aspects of designing.

From April 3 until the April 30 you will find a new web page that features ways that students can continue to develop their ideas. Read through and modify to suit your needs, and don't forget to upload the results to Thingiverse .
