Tinkercad, Huh? What that?

What is tinkercad? Tinkercad is website that allow you to design three dimensional shapes or objects for 3 dimensional printing. Once you created your design you can send to the printer to develop it into actual shape. This is similar to having a personal computer at home and hp printer. Depending on what you would like the 3D printer to print from any compatible website like tinkercad, shapeway, thingiverse etc and the type of printer you have will determine how long it will take to print. Referring back to my hp printer example in order for hp printer to work it would need hp software installed on your personal computer which is same thing as need the website to use the 3D printer. A technician would say if you want to components to talk to each other, you would have to get the components to communicate to each other.  There are different types of three dimensional printer range from beginners level to advance level. In the spring of 2014, I did a paper on three dimensional printing because I became fascinated with the website and the three dimensional printer results. The product does have negative and positive impact on society but in this day and age what doesn’t.There was a story on CNN news that take about a company from Texas use their three dimensional printer to make guns. Many businesses invested in the product to reduce expenses, individual brought 3D printer to make and sell various things on ebay and amazon, in addition bio engineers designed bio printing a three dimensional printer that prints new organs or blood vessels for people in need. I feel 3D print is very innovative and will continue to grow into popular investment for business to save money.
