There are many different programs that can be used to create 3D files. Some of them are software programs that need to be installed on computers like AutoCad. Others, like Tinkercad, are run through the internet and can be used without installing anything onto a computer.

The UDPL Steam Lab recommends the following web-based programs to create 3D files:

  • Tinkercad – allows you create files from scratch
  • SketchUp – allows you to create filed from scratch
  • Thingiverse – a website dedicated to the sharing of user-created digital design files
