The basic Tinkercad tutorials:
Always use Shift plus Right-click to move the workplace.
Use the Mouse-wheel to zoom-in zoom-out.
This tutorial aims to give suggestion on how to combine shapes, in order to create a logo using the tools that Tinkercad provides. No technical drawing skill is required.
Select the F and using the handles resize it, in order to make it larger. (Approximate height 45)
Move the A in order to overlap the F.
Repeat the same steps for B
Move the object next to A B.
With tinkercad you can import not only 3D models, but also 2D .svg files.
You can import a logo or a graphic element from a .svg file.
There are a several libraries online where to find free or open source svg designs, for example:
www.freepik.com limiting the search to “icons”
Once the item is on the artboard you can scale its size and give the desired height.
Move the graphic element (the gear) in the center of the circle.
Design a thin, long box that has a length that goes from A to U.
Select the F and the line and align them to the bottom of the selection
Now your design is ready, you can set its size and thickness according to the use you want to make of it.
Tip: if you want to design a logo to be lasercut, the advice is to keep it simple. And also don’t forget to put all of the items together if you want to create a standalone object.
For example, you can easily create a keychain with your logo (this is actually good to be lasercut or 3D printed!)
