Tinkercad is great. It is easy to use, and perfect for simple models. However what if you want to push the limits in Tinkercad and use it to design complex models that are not easily created by stacking shapes. In this video, I will decode the mysteries about using SVG files and Tinkercad include combining shapes, importing both solids and holes, creating outlines and working with image files.

The SVG files used in this video were created with Inkspace and Boxy SVG. The models produced are perfect for printing on a Creality Ender 3 or Ender 5, on a Prusa i3 Mk3 or on your favorite Monoprice 3d printer.

Any slicer can be used with these models including Cura, PursaSlicer, and Simplify3d.
