Novedge: How does SelfCAD compare to TinkerCAD?
Aaron Breuer: Many people think SelfCAD is just an upgrade to TinkerCAD , mostly because of its simple and intuitive interface and the focus on 3D Printing. While TinkerCAD is an introductory software to the 3D world , with the aim of enticing the youth to the 3D Modeling industry, SelfCAD is a fully-featured professional 3D modeling application that has a high standard, as well as many proprietary powerful tools and features.
Novedge: What kind of Design tool is SelfCAD?
Aaron Breuer: SelfCAD is a Browser-based Mesh modeling application. It has a diverse technical and artistic toolset with many 3D Printing specific tools like Magic Fix and has a built-in slicer.
Novedge: How long does it take to learn SelfCAD on average?
Aaron Breuer: People we surveyed say that you can master SelfCAD in two weeks. Other comparable solutions that have the same kind of features SelfCAD has, have a learning curve of about 6 months.
Novedge: How did SelfCAD shorten this learning curve?
Aaron Breuer: By separating basic and advanced tools, by keeping a single design mode for all types of objects and profiles while reusing the same modeling tools for all types of objects, and by SelfCAD’s smart design that dynamically updates its advanced settings according to the selection context. That saves a lot of time that normally would be spent in learning which settings to use for each object type and selection context.
