A tool which assists in improving AutoCAD skills with models in this alternative to programs like Google Sketchup.

Autodesk 123D Make is an interesting 3D design tool probably created as a response to free programs like Google Sketchup and the libe which converts 3D models into real-world objects which can potentially be created with a 3D printer.

To use Autodesk 123D Make, you should load the model into the program and choose the type of construction you would like to create the object with. You can import designs from other programs such as Google Sketchup or 3DS Max.

The problem with Autodesk 123D Make is its lack of innovative or concise menus which makes it difficult to get anything really done in an efficient manner. Although it does allow you to create some interesting real-life objects from a variety of different materials.
