TinkerCad Tutorial - HOW to Turn a PNG/JPEG Image into a 3D Design, Step-By-Step!

Tools used in the video

  • John from Envision Robotics is demonstrating how to create a snowflake project.
  • The process involves searching for a snowflake image online and converting it to an SVG format.
  • The video is divided into three segments.
  • In the first segment, John explains how to find and save a PNG or JPEG file of the desired snowflake image.
  • He recommends looking for images with a white background and all elements connected.
  • He then demonstrates how to use an online tool to convert the image to an SVG format.
  • In the second segment, John shows how to import the SVG file into Tinkercad and adjust its scale and dimensions.
  • In the third segment, John will explain how to design the rest of the snowflake and export and slice the final product.
  • The same process can be used for converting other images into SVG format and importing them into Tinkercad.

In this tutorial, John from Envision Robotics demonstrates how to create a snowflake using Tinkercad. The process involves finding a snowflake image online, converting it into an SVG file using an online file conversion tool, and then importing it into Tinkercad for further design. John divides the tutorial into three segments, with the first focusing on finding and converting the image, the second on importing the SVG file into Tinkercad, and the third on exporting and slicing the final design. Along the way, John shares helpful tips, such as looking for snowflake images with a white background and avoiding disconnected elements. He also notes that the same process can be used to convert images of other designs, such as animals or video game characters, into SVG files for Tinkercad. Overall, the tutorial is a useful guide for beginners looking to create their own designs using Tinkercad.
