How is SelfCAD Different from What's Already Available?
SelfCAD for Education was designed around the current needs of middle, high school, and college level classrooms. This is what SelfCAD so unique.
SelfCAD is not designed for a high-level engineer or for large scale commercial ventures. Rather, it has been designed for the everyday user, especially students. Of course, there are other options out there, but one major point of difference is SelfCAD’s real-world authenticity.
Programs such as TinkerCad, for example, is often said to be limiting and overly simplistic; as in they don’t necessarily give students an authentic 3D design experience or prepare students to step up to more real-world CAD based design applications. SelfCAD, on the other hand, offers a far more genuine learning experience, while still being easy to use and suitable for the classroom setting.
As an article by 3D Printer Chat states, “SelfCAD is an interesting middle ground for people who are looking for something more advanced than TinkerCad and want an all in one place to design, slice, and print more advanced models with more control.”
