Description

CRAP! This means I have to learn another CAD program (which probably isn't too hard or bad news), but Tinkercad worked really well for me.

I have tried all of the "alternatives" and I am finding nothing is as good as Tinkercad...

I have played a bit with 3DTin, but I can't make sense of how it scales. I.E. A 10mm object in Tinkercad renders a different dimension when imported into 3DTin, and vice verse. And Autodesk 123D crashes like the Hindenburg whenever and however I tried to run it (at least a dozen times).

I have tried the app and the standalone program. For some reason whenever I try to do anything in either one my display driver crashes.

I guess 3DTin would be the next closest thing to Tinkercad. Anyone ever tried it?

I would happily pay for a downloadable, desktop Tinkercad application. It is what I show CAD/3D Printing noobs to get them started.

"Crap" is right... I was impressed with Tinkercad's simplicity and intuitiveness. Anyone could could design a 3D thing with Tinkercad.
