Major Tinkercad update: you can now import 2D/3D designs!

Today, the folks at Tinkercad released one of their coolest features ever: the possibility to import existing 2D or 3D designs. Tinkercad is a free 3D design app that runs in the browser by using the latest web technology (web GL). The great thing about it is that you don’t need any previous design expertise. Just open your browser, go to and start creating!


With the release of the import feature, we can’t wait to see all the crazy mash-ups and modifications people will come up with. The only downside for now, is that the STL import is limited to 25 000 triangles. So don’t go crazy just yet.

So how does an imported 3D file look in Tinkercad? Have a look below.

We can’t wait to see what’s coming next…and don’t forget you can still EXPORT your designs to i.materialise for 3D printing.
