Share designs

By default your Tinkercad designs are private and not discoverable by the public. However, sometimes you make something so cool that you want to share it with the world!

In this short tutorial I will go over the easy steps for posting your design publicly to the Tinkercad Gallery.


The first thing you want to do is load your design dashboard. This is the default page you see when you are logged in. If you need to get back here you can simply click the Tinkercad logo in the top left corner.

Once there, find the design you want to make public and click on it.


This will now open the design preview window. There are a few different options here, but the one we are looking for is the one that looks like a gear in the top right corner of the screen (next to the “Like” button).


This is the Design Properties window. You will need to fill out all of this information before you can publish your work. Start by entering the Description to let people know what your design is and anything else you may want to share. Next, take a moment to insert some tags. These are important because they are keywords that let people help find your model.

Now is the most important part of this whole tutorial! You need to find the privacy dropdown menu and switch “Private” to “Public” in order to make your design visible and searchable in the Tinkercad Gallery.


The last thing you will need to do in this window is click “Save changes.” Once this is selected your design file will be made public.


You should now find yourself back at your dashboard. If you click on the design that you just made public, the preview window will look a little different than before.
