Need more functionality than TinkerCAD but don’t want to shell out hundreds of dollars and hours for industry-standard professional software? SelfCAD is your answer.
SelfCAD is a cloud-based mesh modeler with an intuitive interface and easy learning curve that sets it apart from the competition. SelfCAD is basically the step-up from TinkerCAD. SelfCAD’s interface is similar to TinkerCAD in its ease of use, but SelfCAD provides an arsenal of organic and technical modeling tools whereas TinkerCAD is quite limited in its scope. You can model and render really professional designs in SelfCAD, but its price point is much lower in comparison to Zbrush, for example.
Whether you’re a hobbyist trying to learn the basics of 3D CAD or a professional who wants a convenient way to tweak an STL file from wherever you are without the need to open resource-draining software, SelfCAD is an all-in-one 3D modeling and 3D printing solution you can access from any computer.
Something that really makes SelfCAD stand out from the pack is that it has a host of editing tools that work directly on the mesh. Mesh operations that take hours in other software take seconds in SelfCAD. You can use the Magic Fix tool to prep your object for print directly as you’re modeling it, and you don’t have to download any additional slicing software to export your model either.
