Tinkercad, don’t want the inability to learn CAD to hinder innovative solutions. Ever. Creating physical products, or what it calls ‘design literacy,’ is a right the entire world has. One of the keys to ensuring the success of Tinkercad’s mission is to provide the future makers of the world access to Tinkercad. As Co-Founder Kai Backman has said, “A key part of learning is to have great tools at your disposal.”
- The $50,000 translates into 1,000 registered users per qualifying institution for the 2012/2013 school year, which includes summer of 2013.
- There is a single administrator who owns the account and can add and remove students at any time.
- Digital manufacturing devices also qualify in place of a 3D printer. These include, but are not limited to, laser cutters and CNC machines.
