Check out Tinkercad‘s toolbar addition of Scribble! Here’s a link to their blog post with more information about Scribble:

I love the freedom of hand-drawing! If there were a Tinkercad iPad app, I could see using this for next year’s Class II Lenape buzzer toy project. On the iPad, Morphi or Doodle3D are options for finger-sketching designs.

I imagine Scribble may include more features eventually, like maybe a “fill” option? Without a quick way to fill an outline of a shape, I manually used the Brush Tool (as if I were drawing with crayons on paper), and then use the Eraser Tool to make the holes in my first design below. For my second attempt, I used the Shape Tool and Shape Eraser Tool. It was a little weird at first, but then I started to get the hang of it. I’d really like the option of sketching an outline and filling it in. Yes, I’m repeating myself.Screen Shot 2018-04-27 at 9.38.06 AM.pngscreen-shot-2018-04-27-at-10-13-46-am.png

Thanks to @wagongrrl @openblackboard @gravescolleen @morrill_rob (and others!) for sharing 3D designs for coin cell battery holders! #MakerEd #STEAM #STEMed

Thanks to the generous makers below for designing and sharing these helpful 3D templates that hold a coin cell battery in place while allowing wires, conductive thread, and/or copper tape to conduct electricity:
