Tinkercad is a free web application for 3D design, electronics, and coding. It is the perfect introduction to CAD and is very intuitive. It has been designed with the classroom in mind and is suitable for both primary and secondary students. This professional learning session is suitable for beginners and beginner to intermediate teachers and by the end, participants will have the resources and confidence to use Tinkercad to design products with their students. 

The session will be facilitated by Anthony Bacon, Head of Technologies, at Mentone Grammar School who came into education after working as an Industrial Designer!

This session will be centred around developing modelling skills for Laser Cutting and 3D printing. Contemporary CAD/CAM manufacturing in the classroom.

In this hands-on session, teachers will be learning CAD skills through designing a product and will cover the following learning outcomes: 


  • How to use Tinkercad basics
  • Setting up class accounts
  • How to use for 3D printing and laser cutting


  • Hands on design projects that can be used with students
  • Navigation around Tinkercad
  • Applications of essential tools


  • Participants must set up their own education account on Tinkercad - https://www.tinkercad.com/join -  (Please note that we do not have capacity within the workshop to troubleshoot set up problems, so please let us know ahead if you have issues with the download and we'll do our best to help.)
  • Participants must ensure they have PC/laptop - this workshop does not cover Tinkercad on iPads.
  • It is optional to have a mouse to use with this application.

    Participants will receive the recording, presenter slides and associated resources after the event.

    NOTE: The Webex link for this session will be sent via email a business day prior to the event.
