Is your Dojo up for the Autodesk 3D design challenge!?

Bring 3D design to your Dojo with Autodesk®

Want to provide your Dojo with fresh challenges for the rest of the year? With Autodesk®  your Dojo can branch out into the awesome world of 3D design, 3D printing and electronics!!

Benefits for your Dojo

This challenge is designed to unleash your Ninjas’ curiosity, creativity and innovation. As an education software partner, Autodesk is providing all CoderDojo Ninjas and Champions and Mentors around the world with free* access to their powerful 3D design software as well as five fun and engaging design badge challenges.

Get Inspired with Tinkercad

Tinkercad is an easy-to-use tool for creating digital designs that are ready to be 3D printed into physical objects. Users are guided through the 3D design process through ‘Lessons’, which teach the basics before moving on to more complex modeling techniques. Get Inspired by visiting the Tinkercad Gallery where chess boards, rockets, i-Phone cases and many other things are being showcased every day.

Tinkercad is now open to users of all ages

Tinkercad is now open to users of all ages. Any user can now create their own Tinkercad account! For our younger users, you can create your very own account and have the adult in your life approve and moderate your access. For those TinkerTeachers out there, that means you can now use it in your classroom. This is one of the biggest asks from the Tinkercad Community and we are happy to make this announcement!

New login process

As a result of Tinkercad now being open to all ages, there have been some changes to the login process. You may have noticed a little change in the Tinkercad log-in process – we are now using Autodesk 123D accounts. Details regarding the new process are available here.
