Autodesk Tinkercad

[AutoCAD] Tinkercad is designed to be a free software that can handle the majority of situations that beginners would see in both modeling and 3-D printing environments. This would work excellently in young learners situation such as middle and high schools. However, it can be easily utilized by adults as a stepping stone beginner program to get the hang of modeling and printing tools. [Autodesk] Tinkercad should not be used by any professional organization that rely on more advanced tools and simulation aspects found in real software.

Siemens NX CAD

How many departments will be using the product?How does each department or area within any given company work with or rely on each other? You have to know or be able to create a streamlined approach to doing work for the PLM software to really work. The software adds a lot of necessary structure.

Pros

Autodesk Tinkercad

  • Tinkercad is a great baseline CAD program. This program is easy to implement and train people in.
  • After on a short period of time my students are able to create complex forms using Tinkercads pre-generated shapes and holes.
  • The Tinkercad provided projects aid in pushing the learning experience even further and reinforce the ideas that I train on and help my students explore the program before designing their own complex sculptural forms.

Cons

Autodesk Tinkercad

  • Tinkercad is an online tool. If the internet is off then Tinkercad stops.
  • Tinkercad is mostly for beginners and students of 3d design. Its capabilities have a limit. Besides Tinkercad touch screen device capabilities are also limited.
  • Rendering options are very limited, nearly none. There is no lighting feature. You could only give plain colours to your models.

Siemens NX CAD

  • Speaking from experience with NX, each revision seems to be focused more on the layout of icons as compared to the functionality of the features.
  • Features within NX that have been used for years are no longer being used as a result of new revisions. Doesn't make a lot of sense to the end user. It would be nice to know what the reason is on a much larger scale (ie large customer recommendation?)

Autodesk Tinkercad

It's easy to use interface, and its prebuild shapes features with easy modification stand it perfectly against all these.

I recommended this to every designer.

Return on Investment

Autodesk Tinkercad

  • Positive return on any productivity because its a free software
  • Negative return because it may take less time to just train on advanced software like autocad or solidworks
  • Very useful for training

  • Do not knowtotal investment cost, but there have been several projects where Siemens PLM software has both produced a better product and maximized production.
  • NX CAM has saved our machining centers thousands of hours and allows direct contact between the designers and the machine programmers.
