My First 3D Printing Project

Step 1 – Design

Complete the Tinkercad design explained in the video below. It will take 20-30 minutes to complete if you have never used Tinkercad before (or more depending on how many details you add to your design). You will need a free account at and you will want to have a USB flash drive handy for step 2.

Step 2 (Slicing) and Step 3 (Printing)

After you create the nametag file in Step 1, watch the video instructions below and follow along. You will need:

  • a USB flash drive
  • access to the finished Tinkercad project from Step 1
  • access to a 3D printer
