negative space/intersecting 2 objects

by emaglott

Not sure how to describe this... look at this thing:


I want the intersection of the 2 objects but I also want to remove the part of the pink objects that stick up into the open center of the blue one and the part of the blue object that sticks into the open part of the pink ones. How can I accomplish this in the best way?

Looking for help printing/creating something like this.

by menglor

Good morning!

I am totally new at this, and tried to design and then ultimately print the attached pictures.

Lets just say , it didnt look like anything to be proud of.

the hearts one looks all pretty, but what printed was disgusting, ultimatly I think maybe the walls were too thin?

the following is what I am trying to achive, either a in filled hexegons, hearts or some king of shape.

is there a better way to do this? even getting the hearts to line up was a 2-3 hour exercise.

Ability to print two objects and have 1 object fit inside the...

by oranthor

I am new to designing 3d objects. I am trying to print a 25mm circle 1.5mm high. I then place a 5 point star in the middle of this circle. The star is 20mm by 1mm high. The star sits .25mm into the circle. I want to print both pieces (each piece a different filament color) and then place the star in the cutout in the circle? I have printed both pieces (the cirlce with the star as a hole) so I know the pieces are exactly sized right. However, the star actually needs to be just a hair smaller to fit. First of all, how would I accomplish this in TinkerCAD or something else? Secondly, is this possible using TinkerCAD or should I be using something else? Thanks for helping a N00B.

alternative to tinkercad.

by mer2329

now i love tinkercad, it is easy and meets my needs perfectly.
but im not a fan of how to use it.
a) go to the website
b) try and sign in.
c) if signin fails 3 times disable my script block (i have all the needs for tinkercsad set)
d) try again.
e) disable my adblockign,
f) try again
g) scream at the top of my lings about not being able to sign in...

you get the idea.
now i know my account is not wrong because im use google to sign in.

now what i want to know? is there any cad program like tinkercad. that i can use on my computer. without the need for an internet connection?

also i am not a fan of using websites for things i use frequently (like tinkercad). so some kind of offline tinkercad would be wonderful.
i tried the windows app and i cant sign in at all
