4 Appropriate Digital Tools for Teaching Science
4.2 3D-modelling tools
SketchUp and Tinkercad are tools for 3D modelling that are run directly in a web browser. They thus do not require download and installation of software, but they do require registration of the users. (A shared class account may be the easiest way to handle this.)

Modelling can be used in mathematics for training geometry. Being able to easily modify the size of a body and immediately see the resulting difference in surface area and volume is an advantage.

Modelling can also be incorporated in craft classes in order to plan the objects to be produced.

Learning the basics of the tools is achievable in the course of a lesson.
