Powerful App - Great for Complex 3D Models
The 3D modeling capabilities of Tinkercad are phenomenol. In particular, the boolean functions are able to handle subtractions and merges of extremely complex objects. Very few apps have this level of mathematical computational power that can run on an iPad without bombing out. There are people who claim Tinkercad is a toy app, meant for kids, and not adult draftspersons or engineers. Don’t listen to them. Those naysayers don’t know what they are talking about. Tinkercad is not CAD, but is a much faster tool for visualizing and drafting in the 3D space. The dimensional accuracy is high and the precision is to the hundredths of a millimeter, so I’ve used Tinkercad for rapid development of tools and parts to outsource for DMLS production in aluminum, steel and titanium — and where I’ve managed the entire design to production chain on an iPad while waiting a few hours for connecting flights. To the new users: once you learn how to merge and subtract objects, there are no limits to what you can do with Tinkercad for 3D modeling. I am amazed that such a powerful app as Tinkercad is free. I hear that Autodesk is no longer developing Tinkercad and is developing something even more powerful with tiers of paid subscription. Whenever that comes out, I’m “in”! Kudos to the developers and engineers at Autodesk for Tinkercad. Great app. 👍

Buggy and not as good as the web interface
First off, I really appreciate that Tinkercad is free. I used to use the web version to design all my simpler stuff because I was too lazy to learn Fusion 360 or Onshape well. It’s pretty amazing what you can do with a simple little CAD. However, the iPad app is not nearly as good as the web interface. I honestly could live with the clunky interface if it weren’t for the major bug I’m seeing when you tap a dimension and enter it with the keyboard. After hitting “OK”, the keyboard takes a long time to disappear and most of the time that same dimension box will come up again and require you to enter the number yet again and hope it works. It was just frustrating and significantly took away from my experience. If I notice that the bug gets fixed I’ll update my review to 5 stars. Now after getting an iPad Pro, I decided to try out Shapr3D and absolutely loved the user interface. The integration with Apple Pencil is very seamless and intuitive. It’s a powerful CAD tool with a lot of potential but of course it’s not free (subscription service too...)

Worked great for more than a year, then it didn’t.
Love tinkercad and use te web browser all the time now. I recently attempted to log on as normal (so keep in mind I had not been on the app for easily more than a year) but when I try to get on now, it gets stuck in this strange loading page where it’s not quite done with the first loading screen but another screen behind it saying “Connection Lost” is also trying to load at the same time. The then create a weird pulsing screen affect from the blue first loading screen and the second white loading screen that is an infinite cycle and does not appear to ever resolve itself (it was running for more than an hour doing this). Even after uninstalling and reinstalling the app it still does this. Would be a 5 if not for the recent problems above, but overall a really great app and I’ll most likely continue to use the web browser whenever possible.

Bit of a learning curve, but very good!
I tried dozens of 3D CAD programs after a hiatus of 6 years from 123D. This one works well everywhere since it is browser-based except on iOS where it is native. It’s pretty intuitive — a major requirement IMHO. For my limited needs, it worked very well after a few tries and going through some tutorials. Docs are useless. Blogs only a bit better. Email support was instantaneous when I asked about truncated cone dimensioning. Support of Apple Pencil is very good.

Totally web based / online
I use tinkercad web-based cad to design various odds and ends that I 3D print. When I saw there was a “dedicated” iPad app I was excited to have this capability on my mobile device. However the app is merely a web browser that shows their website. It’s basically the same experience you get if you visit their website on safari. Thus it requires 100% online connectivity on your iPad to function, and it is not tightly integrated for tablet use at all. For example when dragging a new object with your finger or Apple Pencil you see a prompt “Hold C to…” which is clearly designed for laptop / desktop use. Still giving 4 stars because it’s free and very useful. However their “dedicated” iOS app is misleading.

Good for children and beginners, not advanced modeling
It fulfills everything someone who knows nothing about modeling or someone only needing simple designs would need, however, beyond that it can create more frustrations than necessary if you are wanting to make more advanced models and don’t have a ton of time to make every small detail from small shapes… And if you do make it to the finish line with very detailed models, it can be a pain to transfer to a slicer if you are using the program to 3D print. Other than that I wish there was a way to search through the collections of shapes without having to go through tabs manually.

Not bad.
I really have a lot of fun with this app but I do have some suggestions. One is I would like to have an erase option to just take square edges off. I would also like a better way to tell if the object is in the print bed. I have made things that looked anchored but would up in the finished print with supports under them. I also have a problem of deleted objects showing up when I go to slice. I can get rid of them but it’s aggravating. I think it would be great to bring photos in to make 3D items. I still recommend this.

There’s a Blazing Problem
The software is highly useful don’t get me wrong, but “Remember Me” in the accounts only works for like a month until I get logged out, and I’m getting tired of trying to remember my password. I know it’s there to keep people from accessing the account while it’s logged in, but it should be able to be permanently on unless it is disabled by the user, then he shall log back in every time he opens the app.

Best App Ever
This is the best app ever. I love how there are shapes that would be extremely hard to build ate pretty much just handed to you. It’s a fun app that’s getting me a 3d print. My dad says if I can build the project we’ll make them. Witch requires a 3d printer so he’s been looking for all the stuff we need for a rosen printer! And the controls are easy to get used to it’s a lot of fun!

Great program but theres a huge problem
So I was publishing a project that was a award for my friends, Somehow It won't let me publish it, Everything keeps lagging and I don't know why, I might have installed a virus or something because when i was doing stuff SOMEHOW a unknown error that no one have seen on TINKERCAD. I'm Domino150! by the way. I've created great projects even my friends. I'm unable TO SAVE MY PROJECTS. I love tinkercad but Would you fix the glitch because this error is doing something really bad!

Buggy, but good overall
Yeah, this app is practically everything a beginner designer needs! It’s organized and nice with one flaw. It’s extremely buggy. One simple mis click and your progress is gone. I tried pressing the undo button multiple times, it didn’t work. I eventually managed, but this is actually a good app overall. I would recommend getting it if you are starting out to design, model.

Unfulfilled potential...
I have to say when I first heard this app was available I thought it would be amazing! As a new owner if an iPad Pro 11 inch with an Apple Pencil 2 I rushed to download the app only to find out that there’s no support for the Apple Pencil. All you can do from my admittedly short time with the app is drag objects onto the workplane and select the different points. Notice I said select, you cannot drag and resize with the pencil, you have to use your finger and at that point I might as well open it up in Safari. Uninstalling until they add Apple Pencil support, thanks for the effort but like another review stated just seems like a port of the site.

UX is lacking
Obviously a lot of thought went into this app, but navigation is clunky in lots of places. For example, imputing any number requires two clicks on the iPad in order to access the number keyboard. Also, tutorials will instruct you to press buttons that are unlabeled without pointing out where they are in the UI, and in my case, the hints didn’t get me through. I do at lot of procedural modeling in my work and was excited to play with this, but am constantly hitting obstacles that would be easy to tune up.

Just too fun!
I love this app, both here and on the website. Fusion 360 is a lot more complicated and capable, but usually this is all I need. I know fusion has parametric functionality, but usually I can just make a copy of my model, ungroup the parts that I need to change and make the mod’s I need. Highly recommended.

Lost Connection Error
I haven’t even used this because any time I open it, it loads and loads and says “Lost Connection” despite being connected to strong Wi-Fi and or cellular service. And it’s been doing this for over a year. Worked great on my Chromebook though.

Delighted w Apple Pencil iPad Pro Support!
Back in January, 2020 I got a 3D printer and began to design for it with Tinkercad on my Mac. I learned enough to be dangerous, so I got an iPad Pro w Apple Pencil 2. Alas, apparently iOS 13 regressed pencil support. But Tinkercad 1.2 released March 2 has fixed this problem. It now works great! I also see that original Apple Pencil is supported. Good job!!

Could have more features
This app is painfully basic. If you aren’t a first time CAD user, this is a very frustrating experience. Compared to Shapr3D, this app is like child’s play. That being said, this app is designed for kids or new makers, and I think does a good job. However, the controls and interface vary so much from other apps I have used, I think I would find it tough to learn on this app and apply those skills to another.

Great App
I used the web interface for educational classes I taught at a local nonprofit. When the app came I was very excited. I’ve used in in educational settings as well as in my business startup to design enclosures. It’s easy to use and the libraries help a lot.

Free! And Suggestions...
Certainly useful. It appears to be a port of the desktop app. Can we have a Help function for tools or lookup for techniques? Not seeing a meaningful method to scale objects other than touch+drag but it appears to only affect a single dimension rather than all three simultaneously. Still an incredibly useful app. Huge bonus that it's free. Long-term maybe we'll see the inclusion of a Slicer concept.

Lazy app developer
All the instructional lessons give instructions oriented to a laptop. Login process uses NONE of the normal iPad protocols. Better to log in using Safari if you want to use your iPad. I want to love this app, but I can’t get enough done to know if I even like it. Not Autodesks best work. But, the price is right, and Autodesk does support the community of makers and learners. Feels kind of cheesy to gripe, but wasting time with unjustified expectations should be avoided by everyone. YOLO.

This is an amazing app!
So, if you have never made a 3D model, this is the right app for you. This app I have been using for over 5 Months and it is amazing. I went from being a total Noob at 3D Modeling to Making Buildings with architectural software. So if you want to make a 3D model, then download this app!

So much potential, so many bugs
The good: easy to use after some practice. Free. The bad: importing size limitations. Controls can be quirky causing annoying problems. The ugly: Buggy. Can retroactively change your creation after you save; so upon reopening your work, everything has changed. As it reloads your work, it is loaded as every modification you made individually. Suddenly your work is a mass of rectangles ungrouped and completely useless. I seen a final product I made look amazing. Then I tried exporting it. Not only did it fail, it inexplicably went back to an unfinished version of my work and ungrouped all my modifications. Maybe another year or two of updates will fix this cool yet highly frustrating app.

iPad problems
Continuously crashes. Tutorials provided by the app do not address the iPad at all and instead show you how to use this from a desktop/windows perspective. Very unclear how to use and very unprofessional there is no clear education or tutorials or manual for creating or saving your files. There are no objectively effective tutorials at all for using the iPad app in general severely disappointing -0 out of 10 would recommend

Why……. 😡
I was so excited to get this app because I have it on my school chrome book. I’ve made a lot of cool things so that why I wanted it on my device that I’m using now. But when I opened the app and it said I had lost connection then when I looked at my internet I was on and nothing was wrong but I guess the app though wrong. So I waited until I gave up. So is it my device or is it just the app messing up?

🤨
It’s a good idea, but it makes geometric patterns that mess with the printings. And so I checked out fusion 360 because Tinker-cad said that it would not have this problem but it would not even let me in because apparently to get in you need your own web team, company, etc… so I might use a different app.

Buggy; Couldn’t Use
Was excited to give this app a try. But the drop down menus all froze so I couldn’t scroll to any options other than the initial ones shown. Also, buttons were overlapped (i.e. the export and work plant buttons were on top of each other). The bits of the tutorials I could do seemed fine, but due to the layout bugs I couldn’t actually get to do anything of my own.

Great, but does not work with touchscreen as advertised.
Thought this would be a great design program... but unfortunately a lot of the functions require a keyboard, which most touchscreen devices will not have. You cannot group items, because you cannot select multiple objects. So why have this as an app if it doesn't work properly on a touchscreen?
