I am happy to announce that we have just signed a deal where Autodesk will purchase the Tinkercad site and core technologies. This is a great day for all Tinkercad users, Autodesk is a very enthusi...
Late March Tinkercad sent out an announcement that were shutting down operations.
I, like many others, expressed sadness that this was the end of TinkerCAD. Tinkercad like a handful of other 3D startups brought fresh ideas and new hope to the CAD industry (even if they hadn't quite figured out their business model).
March 27th - @4Dpipeline - RIP Tinkercad, the only 3D modeling environment with a non-atrocious UI.
Well, that said, they are back from the dead. Autodesk spotted the opportunity and made them an offer to find a new home with the growing list of acquisitions at Autodesk HQ. I'm not sure now what the future will hold for them now. I suspect Autodesk might fit this into their 123D offering. Regardless, I'm glad to see the Tinkercad guys have a happier conclusion (end? beginning?).
The 3D/CAD App space continues to excite! It's never a dull day.
