Designing 3D Printable Math Shapes

Mathematics is everywhere! Almost all the objects we see around us are made of two dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) mathematical shapes. Recognizing and understanding the patterns of 2D polygons and 3D solid are critical for learning geometry.

In this module, you will learn how to design these 2D and 3D mathematics shapes on Tinkercad. There are unique features on Tinkercad that allows you to convert a 2D object to 3D object and vice-a-versa.

Here's a video that demonstrates these features.
