Tinkercad who runs an easy to use and powerful browser based CAD aimed at designing physical things for 3D printing annouced on Monday a new release of their 3D modeling software. This new release inludes an integration with the 3D printing service offered by Ponoko. This integration joins the previously available services by Shapeways and i.Materialise. Users of Tinkercad can send their design directly to the above three 3D printing service companies. Tinkercad also supports leading consumer 3D printers like the MakerBot.
The service is currently free to use for non-commercial designs.
Tinkercad wants to make 3D printing accessible to a wide audience and to teach people how to design using a simple and powerful 3D design tool.
"Tinkercad is one of the best new 3D design apps, and we're proud to offer our 3D printing services directly through Tinkercad via the Ponoko Personal Factory API." says David ten Have the CEO and co-founder of Ponoko.
