Tinkercad is the entry-level 3D modeling design tool by Autodesk that allows users to create 3D objects simply as well as downloadable and 3D-printable items.
Creating 3D objects adds to the 2D x-axis (width) and y-axis (height) the third dimension, z-axis, which represents the depth. An .OBJ or .STL file will be created from the design created in TinkerCAD. Either of those file types can be downloaded and printed using a 3D printer, although .STL files seem to work on ours more easily.
