My design will not download when I click to Export my design. How can I get it to work?

Sometimes it helps to select the objects first before exporting.

 

To download your design, please try the following steps:

  1. Using Chrome, login to Tinkercad, and open the design.
  2. Select the objects to export. You can window select all objects.
  3. Click "Export", then choose "STL" for the filetype.

Your design will download to your Downloads folder.

 

Tinkercad tries to group everything when exporting, making it watertight, and 3d printable. If a model will not export all at once given its complexity. One option is to export in pieces. Here's how:

  1. Duplicate the design, since you'll be deleting parts of it as it exports.
  2. Select some objects that make sense to group together (ie. trees).
  3. Export, STL or OBJ (it only exports selected).
  4. After export, delete the selected object (just exporeted) from the duplicate Tinkercad design.
  5. Continue with other parts of the design until all pieces are exported and nothing left in the design.

 

The individual exports can be reassembled in Meshmixer, Fusion 360 or another program or slicer you intended to take them.
