converting to x3g

I'm a science teacher at a private school. We purchased a Makerbot Replicator 2x this summer and I'm learning the ropes. I have assigned my students to begin creating keychains on tinkercad and tinkerplay so they gain firsthand experience creating with a 3D printer. We have run into the trouble of getting our creations converted from the formats used on here to .x3g files because that is the only type this model accepts. I have scoured the web and have only come up with two programs, Replicator G and Makerbot desktop that handle this sort of thing. However, I do not know how to convert the files using these programs. I'm not yet ready for coding so I need a little help. Can anyone here give me some advice how best to proceed?
