Share Codeblocks Designs

Previously, the only way to share your Codeblocks designs with other users was to export a screenshot or animated GIF. Now, Tinkercad users can simply share the URL of any public Codeblocks design, allowing others to view and copy the design along with the editable code used to generate it.


To make an existing Codeblocks design public, visit the Codeblocks section of your design dashboard, select a design, then click the Properties gear in the top right corner. Here, you can change the name of your design, add a description and tags, and select whether you’d like to make your design public (as well as what kind of Creative Commons license is the best fit for your use). Finally, press the Save Changes button.

Once a design has been made public you’ll see a number of sharing options in the dashboard view of your design, including buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Thingiverse, Pinterest, and Google Classroom. Additionally, you have the option of grabbing a snippet of HTML code for embedding the design on your blog or website. Most importantly, below your design you’ll see a public link that you can copy and share. This link will bring anyone to the same design overview you’re currently viewing.


It’s worth noting that any design you make in Tinkercad (3D editor, Circuits, or Codeblocks) will be marked as private by default until you designate it as public.
