Tinkercad Creates Vector Drawings

vector image uses mathematical formulas to make lines. These lines can be combined to form shapes (or geometric “objects”). Another term for vector is “object-oriented”.

Since Tinkercad is a vector program, the designs you create can be changed in size without losing any detail.

How Does 3D Printing Work?

After you draw your object with software and send your drawing to the 3D printer, the printer converts your design into lots of very thin layers. Then, using hot plastic, the printer builds your object one layer at a time.

It’s like building a cake one very thin layer at a time. The 3D printer starts at the bottom and adds layers on top.
