Creating your own models

Updated 3 days ago ​by Tomáš Chvalina

To create a 3D model yourself, you need a dedicated program. It may take time to find the one that fits all of your preferences. We are listing here some of the most popular ones.

Modelling programs for beginners

  1. TinkerCad (www.tinkercad.com): The easiest way to quickly create your own models. It is an online editor (no installation needed) - you create your 3D model directly in the browser window. It is free, is easy to operate and you will find even basic video tutorials, so after a few minutes nothing prevents you from creating your first 3D object. 
  2. Fusion 360 (https://www.autodesk.com/produ...): Another popular tool for creating models or PC, Mac and iPad. More complex than Tinker Cad yet the website provides a quick guide along with detailed video tutorials so it’s also a very good choice for novice enthusiasts.
